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: 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.

    the pronounciations listed in the chart are slightly off.

  7. Jake Benin:

    Yes the french spelling is correct however the pronunciation given is not exactly the same.

  8. Janedulie:

    OH finally I found website where they REALLY got numbers from one to hundred !
    – lovely web / blog now I’m gonna do my exams for A+ :D!

  9. Adrianna:

    Had a huge project due today and this really helped! Thanks a bunch.


  10. Natalie:

    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?

  11. Baher:

    I like French it is my most favorite language in the world.

  12. John Gabriel Liwanag:

    This really helps…since I need to study french before I go to Canada,this really helps me

  13. Georgia:

    I really enjoyed this page. I am at school, and struggle with french. This helped a lot. thanks for making this but maybe you make it a little easier to print. perhaps even make it possibe to copy and paste the table. thanks a lot. georgia lyons.

  14. helen:

    love it cause I like French and like to say (three) TWA

  15. Response to Natalie:

    Yes you are right Natalie… but such things are often overlooked because this is just for beginners to get a sense of the language

  16. lalith:

    thank u for helping me again i have studied french in 6th class in dav school and forgot everything going to another school thanks again for remembering me everything again

  17. Daniel:

    I just noted one error: 71 is without hyphens. It should be “soixante et onze”, as in fact are all similar previous numbers (21,31,…,61).

  18. Daniel:

    I mean that 71 should be without hyphens. 81 and 91 are correctly with hyphens in the tables since they don’t have “et” in them.

  19. Mustafaismail:

    Thanks for all the help I’m really happy to see this website I bet anyone who sees this website and learns French will love this website

  20. Madame Taylor:

    This is nice because my students and I would like to practice saying the numbers when they are pronounced by a French speaker. However, a little bit of space between each number so we can repeat would be very nice.Just a suggestion. Merci!
