Lesson Transcript

Hola a todos! Soy Lucia. Hi everybody! I’m Lucia.
Welcome to SpanishPod101.com’s Español en tres minutos. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Spanish.
In the last lesson, we learned the numbers from one to ten. Have you forgotten? Here I'll tell you again:
Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, seis, siete, ocho, nueve, diez.
And now let’s continue from eleven.
Once.
[slowly] once.
Doce.
[slowly] doce.
Trece.
[slowly] trece.
Catorce.
[slowly] catorce.
Quince.
[slowly] quince.
Dieciseis.
[slowly] dieciseis.
Diecisiete.
[slowly] diecisiete.
Dieciocho.
[slowly] dieciocho.
Diecinueve.
[slowly] diecinueve.
And finally:
Veinte
[slowly] veinte.
Okay, now repeat after me. I'll say the numbers and give you time to repeat each one.
once
doce
trece
catorce
quince
dieciseis
diecisiete
dieciocho
diecinueve
veinte
These numbers may seem harder to remember, but you really just have to memorize once, doce, trece, catorce, quince and veinte. But for dieciseis, diecisiete, dieciocho and diecinueve, the numbers always start with dieci, which means "ten."
Let’s not stop at 20! We’ll count from 30 to 100 by tens. It’s really easy!
Treinta
Cuarenta
Cincuenta
Sesenta
Setenta
Ochenta
Noventa
Cien
While you have to memorize most of these numbers, there are a couple of tricks that will make memorizing them incredibly easy. Let’s compare them to the numbers 1-10. Notice any similarities? That’s right! Many of these numbers begin in the same way!
However, be careful about sesenta, and setenta. These can cause confusion because they sound so similar.
[slowly] sesenta
[slowly] setenta
The last thing to learn in this lesson is how to form compound numbers above twenty. This is also super easy!
Take the tens and simply add the numbers you learned in the previous lesson. Sometimes you have to make a few small changes, though.
How would you say “twenty-one” in Spanish? Let’s take it step-by-step. Twenty is veinte, but from twenty-one until twenty-nine, we will change the e in veinte to an i, then add the last number. Pretty easy right?
Let’s try it! Probemos!
Veintiuno
[slowly] Veintiuno
Veintidos
[slowly] Veintidos
Veintitres
[slowly] Veintitres
Veintinueve
[slowly] Veintinueve
Isn’t that easy? Now, let’s look at numbers over thirty. This is much easier as all numbers between thirty-one and ninety-nine are really easy to write. Try to think of thirty-one as, ’thirty and one,’ which in Spanish would be Treinta y uno. Simply separate the numbers by adding y between them. Y in Spanish means, “and.”
Let’s try it out! Intentemoslo!
Treinta y cuatro
[slowly] Treinta y cuatro
Sesenta y ocho
[slowly] Sesenta y ocho
Noventa y cinco
[slowly] Noventa y cinco
Now it’s time for Lucia’s Insights.
If you can’t remember numbers 30 to 99, I’ll give you an easy way to remember them. Just remember that they are said by a shortened form of the number that comes first. For example, treinta begins with tres, cuarenta begins with cuatro and so forth. However, using this hint means that you already know numbers one through ten, so if you haven’t learned them yet, take some time to go back and review.
After only two lessons, you are now able to count to one hundred in Spanish!
In the next lesson we are going to put your knowledge of numbers to use! Do you have all the skills you need to go shopping in Perú? I'll be waiting for you in our next lesson.
Hasta la próxima! See you soon!
