In this article, you’ll have access to the pronunciation of a few numbers in French. My advice: a bit of practice everyday (even if it’s for a few minutes) 🙂

Notes :
– You put a dash between tens and units (like in English);

– Exception: if there’s an “et“, you leave blank spaces in between words;
– Unlike English, French leave blank spaces between thousands, millions or billions (no comas);

– There’s an “s” at the end of “quatre -vingts” because there’s nothing afterwards;
– There’s no “s” at the end of “quatre-vingt-dix” because there’s “dix” afterwards
