Numbers 1 thru 100 in Spanish

Here's a quick review of how numbers 1-100 work in Spanish.

  • From 16 to 19, we are just saying 'ten and six', ''ten and seven', etc. but as a single word: dieciséis, diecisiete, etc.
  • Then you need to memorize all the multiples of 10: veinte, treinta, cuarenta, etc.
