Lesson 41: Counting from 16 to 29

In this lesson you learn to count from 16 to 29 in Spanish. You'll see that from 16 onward there is a regularity in counting. From 30 onward, slightly different rules apply, which luckily also follow a regular pattern.

0 - cero 10 - diez 20 - veinte
1 - uno 11 - once 21 - veintiuno
2 - dos 12 - doce 22 - veintidós
3 - tres 13 - trece 23 - veintitrés
4 - cuatro 14 - catorce 24 - veinticuatro
5 - cinco 15 - quince 25 - veinticinco
6 - seis 16 - dieciséis 26 - veintiséis
7 - siete 17 - diecisiete 27 - veintisiete
8 - ocho 18 - dieciocho 28 - veintiocho
9 - nueve 19 - diecinueve 29 - veintinueve

You have already learned that one before a masculine noun becomes un and before a feminine noun becomese una. The same principle applies to number that end in uno.
