Study

Here is a useful word to start off with:

cuánto(s) : how much / how many

¿Cuántos estudiantes hay?
How many students are there?

Some of these numbers might look familiar. Many numbers are similar in English, French, Italian, Latin, or even Greek! Don’t forget that spelling counts, watch for accent marks!

cero : zero : 0

uno : one : 1

dos : two : 2

tres : three : 3

cuatro : four : 4

cinco : five : 5

seis : six : 6

siete : seven : 7

ocho : eight : 8

nueve : nine : 9

diez : ten : 10

Please note that, when counting objects, the number one changes from uno to un before a masculine noun – just like the indefinite article.

un libro : one book

Yo tengo un libro.
I have a (one) book.

un perro : one dog (male)

Mi hermano tiene un perro.
My brother has a (one) dog.

un hombre : one man

Yo solo soy un hombre.
I am only a (one) man.

Again, please note that, when counting objects, the number one changes from uno to una before a feminine noun – just like the indefinite article.

una pluma : one pen

Tengo una pluma.
I have a (one) pen.

una gata : one cat (female)

Mi amiga tiene una gata.
My friend has a (one) cat.

una chica : one girl

Yo soy una chica.
I am a (one) girl.
