Learn French Numbers 20 to 59 (with Audio Exercises)

These numbers seem easier and therefore are often overlooked by students. Big mistake. You need to train with them as much as with the other numbers – they are part of telling the time in French, and are very important.

Before you study this lesson, I strongly recommend you read the first French numbers lessons of this series :

– How to best learn French numbers
French numbers 0 to 19 (with audio).

Make sure you listen to the audio to memorize these French numbers.

Vingt, Trente, Quarante, Cinquante – the “Easier” French Numbers

Twenty to Fifty are easier, because they all follow the exact same logic.

Yet make sure you learn them well, and can come up with them fast: knowing how to “build” them won’t really help you in in the middle of a conversation!
