French Language Lessons: Counting to 20
When you travel in France, it is often handy to be able to say and recognize spoken numbers in French. You may need to say how many of you there are for a table in a restaurant, how many apples you want from the fruit vendor or what room number you are in at a hotel. You may wish to understand the amount you are asked to pay in a shop, how many meters you are told to walk to reach a certain landmark, which platform your train is leaving from and at what time.
To develop your French numbers skill, follow the counting lessons in order. Each lesson builds on the previous ones, so make sure you are confident with each lesson before continuing on to the next. First, use the following lists to master the numbers from 1 to 20. Subsequent lessons (see the navigation bar to the right) expand your knowledge up to 100, to 1,000, to 100,000 and beyond! You can listen to the lesson.
Notes on Pronunciation
French words tend to be accented lightly on the last syllable or the last syllable of a group of words. In rare instances for emphasis or where this is not the case, an accented syllable will be indicated by ALL CAPS. Liaisons are indicated by red, italicized initial consonants (e.g. "Puis-je vous aider?" pronounced as "pwee-zhuh voo zeh-day"). See Guide to Transliteration for more information.
