Please note: There is a short delay when playing the audio clips.

Numbers bigger than ten are useful for telling the time and many other things.

Can you see a pattern below?

onze - eleven

douze - twelve

treize - thirteen

quatorze - fourteen

quinze - fifteen

seize - sixteen

Yes, they all end -ZE.

There's another pattern coming up from seventeen - nineteen. Can you work it out?

dix-sept - seventeen

dix-huit - eighteen

dix-neuf - nineteen

That's right! You're saying dix-sept - literally 'ten seven' and so on.

So, we've got to twenty! That's vingt.

vingt - twenty

Il est cinq heures vingt. - It’s twenty-past five.
