How to say 700 in Spanish?

Numbers in Spanish are part of basic vocabulary, and it is never wrong to familiarize yourself with them early enough. Alone, if you want to order 2 tapas or 3 glasses of Rioja, for example, or want to ask about the taxi costs or the hotel price per night or the time, or even for a house number, it can be annoying if you have no idea how it is Numbers are called. Of course, with smaller numbers, you can also point with your fingers how much you want, but as I said, for times, prices or larger quantities, it gets complicated with your fingers ;-). In this article, we'll talk about the numbers in Spanish, and we'll give you tips on how they're formed and how to remember them. That’s how soon the Numbers in Spanish be a breeze for you!

 

The numbers in Spanish

Counting from 1-20 in Spanish

Let's start with the basic numbers, with which you can mainly specify quantities, dates, times and measurements. The first 20 numbers in Spanish are actually very easy to remember.

When learning, make sure that 1-15 are individual number names, while from 16 onwards you can follow a scheme. The numbers 16, 17, 18 and 19 are simpler because by connecting the number ten (thez) with the corresponding number (seis,siete, ocho, nueve) are formed. Perhaps just think of the formation of these numbers in German (five-ten, six-ten, etc.). In Spanish, the z in 10 a c + iwhich then sounds like we are ten and (the corresponding number) say 6, 7, 8, and 9:dieciséis, diecisiete, dieciocho and diecinueve.

Warning !: 16 has a tilde.

The numbers in Spanish from 20-99

The so-called cardinales, i.e. the basic numbers, can of course be continued. The (Spanish) basic numbers ending in 0 are 10, 20, 30, 40, 50, 60, 70, 80, 90. Except for 10 and 20, which we already know, they all end -enta or. at 30 still slips in i with in. Here you are:

tra, cuarenta, cincuenta, sesenta, setenta, ohenta and noventa.

The Spanish numbers are actually structured more logically than the numbers in German, because from 20, you only have to combine the respective tens plus one of the numbers from 1-9 that you already know.

And in this order: for example 32 = treinta y dos; or 56 = cincuenta y seis. So one uses the tens, a y (and), plus the corresponding number between 1 and 9.

When it comes to the Number of tens 20 + acts, this is how it transforms e out veinte in an i (for example 21, 22 and 23 would be veintiuno, veintidós, veintitrés).

And you can already see: the numbers 21-29 are written together and 22 and 23 have a tilde!

 

The hundreds numbers in Spanish

100 means cien. From 101 that transforms cien in a ciento. 101 is called accordingly ciento uno.

Let's look at a few more examples. How do you say for example153?

Exactly!: ciento cincuenta y tres.

We use that Hundreds + the tens with the corresponding digit.

By the way, hundreds mean in Spanish centenas.

And what are the other names centenas? Let's look at and 200 to 900. The difference to 100 is first of all that we have another s need to add. 200 is for exampledos cientosin Spanish. There are also exceptions, because 500 is not “cinco cientos”, but quinientos, 700 not “sietecientos”, but setecientos and 900 not “nuevecientos”, but novecientos.

With the exception of these 3, one forms the remaining ones centenas 200, 300, 400, 600 and 800 with 2, 3, 4, 6 and 8+ cientos, all written down. Very easy!:doscientos, trescientos, cuatrocientos, seiscientos, ochocientos.

And what if there are tens?

Also very easy. Then just add these to the end of the hundreds as you learned them before, for example:

348 = trescientos cuarenta y ocho, 511 = quinientos once, 721 = setecientos veintiuno.

Danger!: at all numbers that a U.N as the last digit it is important to note that, if it is followed by a word with a vowel, for example año, the O disappears. It is said, for example, "Hace veintiun años ”, or “Ochocientos y un euro”.

 

The thousands

The thousands in Spanish are a no brainer. All you need to know is how to say 1000 in Spanish.

Thousand = mil

And with that you can already do all of them millares say from 1000 to 99,000. Here we go:

mil, dos mil, tres mil, cuatro mil, cinco mil, seis mil, siete mil, ocho mil, nueve mil, diez mil…..Etc.

With regard to the thousands, I would like to briefly comment on the years. From the year 2000 onwards, the article for the year is used. For example, if you were born in 1984, say “Nací en 1984”, but if you were born in 2002 then say "Nací en el 2002″.

 

The Spanish ordinal numbers

Ordinal numbers are used, among other things, to number objects or to carry out lists. The ordinal numbers are irregular in Spanish and end with O or. awhen denoting a noun with feminine gender such as, for example la planta (the floor). But let's take a look at the ordinal numbers 1 to 10 and then come back to them with an example:

  1. primero / a
  2. segundo / a
  3. tercero / a
  4. cuarto / a
  5. quinto / a
  6. sexto / a
  7. séptimo / a
  8. octavo / a
  9. noveno / a
  10. décimo / a

What is it now? the 8th floor, depending on whether we have the wordplanta or piso(which means both floor) use?

Exactly: la octava planta, but el octavO piso.

 

Numbers in Spanish in context

Numbers are of course always used in a context in real life. Anyone who learns numbers in a foreign language should therefore also know the expressions associated with them. We will therefore talk below about situations that arise when using figures.

 

The date in Spanish

The Date will be in Spanish with the cardinales expressed. Only thefirst day of month, becomesin Latin America with the ordinal number "primero specified, in Spain with the basic number "U.N. Apart from that, days are simply named with a corresponding number.

Examples of this:

  • May 1, 2009: El uno / primero de mayo de 2009
  • February 2, 2020: El dos de febrero de 2020.

There are two ways of creating a complete sentence in which a date is given, namely with ser and estar:

Version 1:

  • Today is February 15, 2020: "Hoy es 15 de febrero del 2020″. (Do you remember what we said about the article on years before and from 2000 have said? If it were 1995 it would "Hoy es el 15 de febrero de 1995 ″ mean.)

Variant 2:

  • It's February 15th, 2020: "Estamos a 15 de febrero del 2020″.

 

The time in Spanish in mini format

To express the time, you need to know the basic numbers. That's it already. If you also want to say quarter past / half past, then that's a plus, but not a must.

Qué hora it?:

  • It la una - It is one o'clock (1:00 or 13:00).
  • Son read 3 y veinte - It's 3:20 pm.
  • It la una y cuarto - It's 1:15 p.m. / a quarter past one.
  • Son las dos menos cuarto - It's 1:45 a.m. / a quarter to two.

The days of the week in Spanish

To say when you would like to meet someone or when you plan to do something or when something has happened, you can of course add the day of the week. The days of the week in Spanish all have the article el and are called:

lunes - Monday

martes - Tuesday

miércoles - Wednesday

jueves - Thursday

four - Friday

sábado - Saturday

domingo - Sunday

For example, you can say El lunes a las dos voy al médico = On Monday at two o'clock I go to the doctor.
