Numbers are so important. So let’s start learning English numbers 1-20 now!

Tips for learning English numbers 1-20

Learning English numbers and counting will be much easier if you can remember some of these tips:

  • For 1 – 13: You need to remember them because sadly, there is no rule. Be patient and start learning them step by step:

1 = one

2 = two

3 = three

4 = four

5 = five

6 = six

7 = seven

8 = eight

9 = nine

10 = ten

11 = eleven

12 = twelve

13 = thirteen

  • For number 14 – 20: Add ‘-teen’ after the number that is not number 1 

Example:                             14 = four  + teen = fourteen

16 = six + teen = sixteen

The only exception is 15 [fifteen] 

So we have:

14 = fourteen

15 = fifteen

16 = sixteen

 

17 = seventeen

18 = eighteen

19 = nineteen

Finally, the last number for today is 20 – twenty.
