It’s actually pretty straight forward when it comes to learning how to use the Italian number system. Pronouncing Italian numbers on the other hands get a little bit tricky. Italian numbers 1 to 10 should be your primary focus when you begin. Italian numbers after gain a prefix added to the base number. To illustrate what I mean, here are Italian numbers 1 to 100.
Italian Numbers beginning at ten through nineteen gain the prefix “dici” added to the base number. Italian numbers from 13-19 work like this. Italian numbers follow a pattern of prefix + base number. However numbers that use either “uno” or “tres” are used slightly differently. “Tres” becomes accented(first example below) while “uno” replaces the vowel at the of the prefix.(Second Example below).
Understanding how to write Italian numbers is really that simple to learn. Only takes an hour or two to fully memorizes the Italian number system.
