Counting in French can sometimes be felt as a major difficulty for non-native speakers.
Would you like to count from 1 to 20?
It is very easy. Let us do it together.
1= un 11= onze
2= deux 12= douze
3=trois 13= treize
4=quatre 14= quatorze
5= cinq 15=quinze
6= six 16= seize
7= sept ( do not pronounce the p) 17= dix_sept
8= huit 18= dix-huit
9= neuf 19= dix-neuf
10= dix 20= vingt (don’t pronounce the g)
This was fun, right?
