Numbers in Spanish

Spanish is the second most spoken language in the world, and is the native tongue in 20 different countries! In the United States, there are more than 40 million Spanish speakers. Learning Spanish is a valuable asset both personally and professionally. Many new language learners will test out a language by first reciting numbers in that language. Numbers in Spanish aren’t particularly tricky, and you should be able to pick them up rather quickly.

Learn more than just the numbers with Rosetta Stone’s Dynamic Immersion® methodology. It teaches you the language, and is effective because we prepare you to use your new language in your everyday life. It’s more than just the features, it’s what you’re able to do because of them. This helps you get ready to handle any situation in Spanish with confidence and poise.

Counting to 20 in Spanish is a common place to start when you first begin learning the language. It’s an easy first step, and one that will be useful later on.

To perfect your pronunciation of words, it’s important 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 Spanish pronunciation. This feedback will guide you and help you make the necessary corrections. It’s also adjustable, which allows you to fine-tune your accent. You’ll find TruAccent is among the most powerful tools for helping you learn and speak Spanish numbers and the language.

After you have conquered Spanish numbers, you will learn to pronounce basic words and short phrases, and eventually move on to longer phrases that make up so much of our everyday conversations. Rosetta Stone has brief, 10-minute lessons which are built in just this way—first teaching the basics, then tackling the longer phrases. This approach helps you acquire the skills to speak Spanish with confidence.
