# Counting from 0 to 100 in Spanish

Numbers are one of the first vocabulary topics that beginning Spanish speakers learn... and one of the vocabulary issues that make the distinction between beginner and intermediate speakers clear. Many students still struggle to put numbers together after mastering many other vocabulary topics. Maybe it's just too much to do math in a different language! Study hard now so that you can learn the numbers early!

From 0-15, there is no pattern - you just have to memorize. You also have to memorize the "tens" numbers.

Luckily, from the number 16 on, a pattern develops: take the "tens", add "y", add the "ones."

Exception: Notice that diez becomes dieci- and veinte becomes veinti- when used as roots. These two combine with the ones value to make one word.

Notice: An accent mark must be added whenever a one-syllable number is added to the roots dieci- or veinti-. The four numbers on this list that have accent marks are: dieciséis, veintidós, veintitrés, and veintiséis.

Notice: Numbers 0-30 are all only one word long. After 30, use the word y to add value.

Note: These numbers are called the cardinal numbers, to distinguish them from ordinal numbers. (e.g.,"first," primero, "ninth," noveno)
