Numbers 10 – 1000

First of all you need to memorize the most important simple numbers because all other more complicated numbers include them.

After you have learned numbers 0-12 you can go further.

Look at the numbers 11 – 19.  Everything you have to do is just to add the ending – надцать /`na-tsat’/ . We don’t pronounce “д“, it is silent here.

1 (один) –  11 (одиннадцать)

And pay your attention to the 12 (двЕнадцаь, not двАнадцать)

For numbers since 50-80  you have to take a number since 5-8 and add 10 (десят here without the soft sign ‘ь‘) after.

50 – пятьдесят             пять (5)     + десят (10)
60 – шестьдесят        шесть (6) + десят (10)
70 – семьдесят           семь (7)  + десят(10)
80 – восемьдесят      восемь (8) +  десят (10)

Also you have to memorize few exceptions.

20– двадцать /`dva-tsat’/
30 – тридцать / `tree-tsat’/
40  – сорок  /` so-rack /
90 – девяносто  / dee-vee-`nos-ta /

Now let’s talk about numbers 100 – 1000

100 – сто /`sto/
1000тысяча   /`tee-see-cha/

For numbers 500 – 900 we take a number  5 – 9 and add the ending -СОТ. For 300, 400  we add -СТА. 200 will be easier to memorize as an exception.
