French Level 1
    Unit 3: Leçon 1
    Les Nombres
    Bonjour! Je m'appelle, Mlle. Duprée. I teach both French and English at the Lycée Van-Damme. It is my awesome responsibility to teach you how to count in French!

    The way that I usually do this in my class, is to have the students begin at the beginning (makes sense!) with the almost number, zéro.

    Listen:


    Track 21
    0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9
    zéro un deux trois quatre cinq six sept huit neuf


    TRÈS BIEN! (VERY GOOD!) Let's continue:


    Track 22
    10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
    dix onze douze treize quatorze quinze seize dix-sept dix-huit dix-neuf


    We are now finished with the most difficult numbers. Read and listen to the next set:


    Track 23
    20 21 22 23 24
    vingt

    vingt et un

    vingt-deux

    vingt-trois

    vingt-quatre

    25 26 27 28 29
    vingt-cinq vingt-six vingt-sept vingt-huit vingt-neuf


    And finally,   30,   trente

    Now, if you really want to show off, you can continue on your own with the numbers 31-39 (they are done the same way as the numbers 21-29, that is, trente-comes before each number. The only number that is different is 31 which is "trente et", plus, "un" or trente et un.)

    Now that you are an expert using numbers 0-30 or 0-39 which ever the case may be, let's move on to the next leçon:
