Numbers from 0 to 29 in Spanish

Let's learn numbers from 0 to 29 along with their pronunciations in Spanish. When it comes to numbers from 0 to 20, they are written as single words. However, pay attention to some special cases. For numbers from 16 to 19, the word "DIECI" is used before the specific number and for the numbers from 21 to 29, we use the word "VEINTI" followed by the corresponding number.

It's worth noting that certain numbers, such as sixteen, twenty-two, twenty-three, and twenty-six, have accent marks. For example, "dieciséis" for sixteen and "veintidós" for twenty-two. These accent marks add a unique touch to the pronunciation.

Song: Los números 1-20

This song is a wonderful and enjoyable resource available on the YouTube Channel Señor Jordan. I personally love incorporating it into my lessons when teaching numbers 1 to 20 in Spanish. To make the learning experience more interactive and enhance memorization, I encourage my students to clap their hands every time they say a number. It's a fantastic way to involve them actively and ensure they have fun while learning.
