Lesson focus

In this lesson, we're going to continue with counting as we cover numbers 11-100.
Let's just quickly review 0-10.
0 - nul
1 - een
2 - twee
3 - drie
4 - vier
5 - vijf
6 - zes
7 - zeven
8 - acht
9 - negen
10 - tien
In Dutch, counting from 11-20 is also quite straightforward, so let's jump right in.
11 - elf
12 - twaalf
13 - dertien
14 - veertien
15 - vijftien
16 - zestien
17 - zeventien
18 - achtien
19 - negentien
20 - twintig
As you may have noticed, each number from 13 to 19 ends with -tien, which stands for "-ten."
What you have to do is take the numbers from 3-9 and then add -tien to it.
Now let's look at the numbers 20, 30, 40 etc.
20 - twintig
30 - dertig
40 - veertig
50 - vijftig
60 - zestig
70 - zeventig
80 - tachtig
90 - negentig
What about the numbers 21-99?
For example, let's create "twenty-nine." Keep in mind that, unlike English, you will say the last number first.
In Dutch, "twenty" is twintig. "Nine" is negen. We will replace the hyphen in English with en, which means, "and." So putting them together, we have negenentwintig, or "twenty-nine."
Let's break down this number and hear it once again.
Now let's try with "thirty-five."
We know that "five" in Dutch is vijf.
Then we have to add the number for "thirty," which is dertig.
So all together, we have: Vijfendertig. ("thirty-five").
Let's break these words down and hear them one more time: Vijf-en-der-tig.
Finally, we have honderd ("100").
100 - honderd
To count from honderd onwards, you need to add the tens and then the units you have just learned.
Let's try with some examples.


All right, that's going to do it for today. Remember to stop by DutchPod101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF and additional info in the post. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment. Tot ziens!
