Numbers In German

Rich in culture, German is the official language of numerous countries— including Austria, Belgium, Germany, parts of Italy, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Poland, and Switzerland. You will benefit from learning German, a prominent language of business in the European Union and beyond, with over 229 million German speakers worldwide. German is also the most widely spoken language of the EU after English.

Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology teaches you the German language, not just the numbers. This method is effective because we prepare you to use German in your everyday life. It’s more than just the features, it’s what you’re able to do because of them and helps you get ready to handle any situation with ease.

German Numbers 1-20

Counting to 20 in German is a common thing to tackle when you first begin learning the language. It’s an easy initial step, and one that will be useful later on while learning the language.

To make sure your pronunciation of words is correct, you’ll need to get immediate feedback on your efforts. Rosetta Stone’s TruAccent™ speech-recognition engine instantly compares your voice to native speakers giving you real-time feedback on your German pronunciation. You’ll find that TruAccent is among the most powerful tools for helping you learn and speak German numbers and the language. Instant feedback guides you in making the needed corrections quickly. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to fine-tune your accent.

Once you have mastered German numbers, you will learn to pronounce basic words and short phrases, and eventually transition to longer phrases that make up so much of everyday conversation. To achieve this, Rosetta Stone has brief, 10-minute lessons which are built in just this way. We first teach the basics, then tackle the longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to speak German with confidence.
