Italian Language Lessons: Italian Counts - Counting to 100
Once you can say and recognize numbers in Italian up to 20, covered in the previous lesson, you are ready to continue with numbers up to 100. Follow these steps, using the provided tables:
Numbers from 20 to 30
Multiples of 10 up to 100
* Note: cento means "one hundred"; you don't add "one" before it as in English.
As with the "twenties", use the root form of any of these "times 10" numbers combined with a single digit number to form combinations like thirty-five (trentacinque), seventy-two (settantadue), etc. A combination number is written as a single word with no space or hyphen. For the "uno" (one) and "otto" (eight) entries in each set of ten, the final "a" (or "i" of venti) of the root multiple of ten is dropped. For example forty-four translates as "quarantuno", fifty-eight as "cinquantotto". These two slightly exceptional cases are often written with an apostrophe; you may see quarant'uno and cinquant'otto, for example.
You have now covered the numbers in Italian up to 100!
You learned the numbers from 1 to 20 in the previous lesson. To practice with numbers from 21 to 99, pick one from each column below and combine them into a single word - remember to drop the final vowel ("i" for venti, otherwise "a") from the left-column part if it is followed by "uno" or "otto".
* Tré is written with an accent when it becomes the last syllable of a number word combined in this way.
Here are a few examples to get you started. Practice with these, then make up more of your own.
