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.
