Lesson focus

Today we're going to continue with counting as we cover numbers 11-100.
Let's just quickly review 0 to 10.
0 - nulla
1 - egy
2 - kettő
3 - három
4 - négy
5 - öt
6 - hat
7 - hét
8 - nyolc
9 - kilenc
10 - tíz
In Hungarian, counting from 11-20 is also quite straightforward, so let's jump right in.
11 - tizenegy
12 - tizenkettő
13 - tizenhárom
14 - tizennégy
15 - tizenöt
16 - tizenhat
17 - tizenhét
18 - tizennyolc
19 - tizenkilenc
20 - húsz
As you may have noticed, from numbers 11-19 you just use the word tizen before the number you want to say. The same is true of the numbers between 21-29. Even though 20 itself is húsz, these numbers will all start with a longer form, huszon, huszonegy, huszonkettő.
Now that we know how to do the complicated bit, let's move on to the simpler one.
30 - harminc
40 - negyven
50 - ötven
60 - hatvan
70 - hetven
80 - nyolcvan
90 - kilencven
Note that from 30 onward, you only need to add a plain number. There's no changing—it's just straightforward.
Let's try with "fifty-three." "Fifty" is ötven and "three" is három. Putting them together, we have ötvenhárom or "fifty-three."
Let's break down this word and see it once again. öt-ven há-rom.
Finally, we have száz.
100 - száz
To count from száz onwards, you just need to add the units and the tens you have just learned.
Let's try with some examples:
110 - száztíz
198 - százkilencvennyolc


All right. That’s is going to do it for today. Remember to stop by HungarianPod101.com and pick up the accompanying PDF. If you stop by, be sure to leave us a comment. Sziasztok!
