French Numbers: Learn to Count from 1 to 1000 Posted by on Nov 1, 2011 in Vocabulary

Un, deux, trois, c’est parti (one, two, three, here we go)!

So… you want to learn how to count in French like a pro?

Well, look no further mes amis, because the Transparent French Blog will show you how to do it—en un tour de main (in a flash)! 

The key to learning how to count in French from 100 to 1000 is to learn the first hundred numbers, from 1 to 100; all you have to do after that is just put on the front cent (one hundred), or deux cent (two hundred), or trois cent (three hundred), or quatre cent (four hundred), or cinq cents (five hundred), etc.

Plutôt facile, non? (rather easy, no?)

 
Prenons quelques exemples (let us take a few examples), to make it even clearer

  • 7 = Sept, 700 = Sept cent, 707 = Sept cent sept
  • 307 = Trois cent sept
  • 801 = Huit cent un
  • 18 = Dix-huit, 100 = cent, 118 = Cent dix-huit
  • 918 = Neuf cent dix-huit

    • Hichem:

      @The_Talented Bonjour!
      1000 in French is “mille“, as in the expression “en plein dans le mille“, which means “bull’s eye” (“you got it!”)

    • Jorja:

      @The_Talented I think I do I think it is un milliard

  5. exotic:

    Exotic out peace

    • Le Mister French:

      @exotic Salut Exotic!
      Very glad you enjoy the French Blog 🙂
      To say “Puppies are so cute” in French would be “Les chiots sont tellement mignons.
      Now, make sure that when you say “chiot”, you do not pronounce the last “t”, otherwise you would be saying something like “the toilet’s so cute’…

  21. Lauczi:

    Hi, I’ve seen on other French teaching sites *variations* of numbers from 200 to 900. I’m wondering which are correct, or you can use them alternatively?
    Example of 200=deux cents; and deux-cents.
    In your examples there is no “s” at the end of the word cent, when meaning more than one hundred.

  22. silverbullet188:

    How do you say the number 900 000 in French words. Sorry if this is trivial stuff to you, I’m sorta just starting

  23. Parshmeet:

    In 505 it’s not cinque it’s cinq

  24. What_the_French:

    I’m writing a book and I wanted the chapter titles to be in french, so the numbers were helpful.

    How do you say Chapter in French?

  25. Luigi:

    Bonjour

    Can someone explain where did the letter o come from in soixante? (since 6 is six not soix)

    My take is that this is how the French avoid confusion with six-cents (600) when pronouncing it though the t is silent here.

  26. #thedudewhoonlyknowsalittlefrench:

    This websites really good =D
    Started to learn French in school but a little confusing, but this website has made everything more clear =)

    TYSM =DDD
