More on numbers

When giving a telephone number, for example, the French usually do so in two’s.  In other words, a French phone number would be written like this: 11.55.63.92 and they would say it like this: onze … cinquante-cinq…soixante-trois…quatre-vingt-douze.

When talking about money,  the French would usually say soixante douze euros et vingt centimes (72,20€).  Yes, that’s right, they use commas instead of decimal points between the whole euros and the cents.

And remember, the final consonants in cinq, six, huit, and dix are pronounced at the end of a sentence or in front of a vowel.  But, they are silent when followed by another word that begins with a consonant.

    I am learning French right now and I believe the number 71 is “soixant et onze” not “soixant-et-onze” because the “et” replaces the “-” Correct me if I’m wrong?
