Die Zehnerzahlen – The “ten numbers”

  • 20 – zwanzig
  • 30 – dreißig (with special letter ß!)
  • 40 – vierzig
  • 50 – fünfzig
  • 60 – sechzig (without “s”)
  • 70 – siebzig (“not “sieben”, just “sieb”!)
  • 80 – achtzig
  • 90 – neunzig
  • 100 – (ein)hundert

Rule: Add “-zig” (= -ty in English) after the number and you are good to go! 🙂

 

Die Zahlen dazwischen – The numbers in between

 

  • 21 – ein-und-zwanzig
  • 22 – zwei-und-zwanzig
  • 23 – drei-und-zwanzig


Rule: start with last number and put an “und” in between 🙂

Hint: “ein” does not have an “s” for these numbers (NOT eins-und-zwanzig, correct: ein-und-zwanzig)
