Listen to it a few times, and make sure to practice saying the words out loud too; it can be the hardest part of language learning, but this will really help you retain the information.

  1. JAC:

    Hi why are the numbers counted from 11-16 one way and 17 and above another way?

    • ally:

      @JAC Well,in the system its got them switched around after a certain point weird but creative!

    • W.O. Brisco:

      @JAC Perhaps for the same reason the Tower of Pisa is the way it is?? ;-))))

  2. ally:

    i’ve got an italian teacher,she challenged us to find out to speak 1-20 in italian so this is really great!

  3. Endurance:

    How can I speak Italian PA fitly

    • Geoff:

      @Endurance Hello Endurance, I really haven’t got a clue what you mean. Could you explain please? 🙂

  4. Kyra:

    Straight up epic. I love it!

  5. Steve:

    17-19 is the same in French and Spanish is 16-19 as far as the 10 is first. Evidently, that’s how it is in romance languages.

  6. Miguel and Bruno:

    This is very interesting stuff, thank you for the knowledge on the italian language. 😄

  7. W.O. Brisco:

    Perhaps for the same reason the Tower of Pisa is the way it is?? ;-))))
