German Numbers 0-99

The structure of counting in German follows a logical pattern similar to English. The numbers are built systematically from smaller units to larger ones. Each number is a combination of words for the tens and units.

To count from 0 to 99 in German, you simply need to memorize the words for each number and understand the structure for combining them.

  • 0-12: The numbers from zero to twelve have their unique words.
  • 13-19: From thirteen to nineteen, the numbers are formed by combining the word for the tens place (zehn) with the unit digit (drei, vier, etc.). The pattern is as follows:
    • Thirteen (13): Dreizehn (Drei + Zehn) – “Drei” (Three) plus “Zehn” (Ten)
  • 20, 30, 40, etc.: These are formed by stating the tens place first and then suffix “-zig” is added to the tens place number. Here’s a breakdown:
    • Twenty (20): “Zwanzig” (Zwei + zig)
    • Thirty (30): “Dreißig” (Drei + zig)
  • 21-99: For numbers above 20, the pattern is consistent. The tens place is stated, followed by the unit digit, with the word “und” (and) in between. The combination of these two elements forms the desired number. For example:
    • Twenty-One (21): “Zwanzig” (twenty) + “Eins” (one) = “Einundzwanzig”

Count 0 to 99
