French numbers

The following tables list audio tracks for the French numbers from 0 to 100. These lists illustrate the general patterns of the French numbering system, which will become easier to recognize as you repeat the numbers and hear them on the audio tracks.    

French number pronunciation guide

There are a few interruptions to the patterns, which once memorized, will not be difficult to use. You will begin to see that once you have memorized the sequence between one and twenty, that everything after that repeats itself until of course, you come to the exceptions! Of particular note is the use of « et » (and) for 21, 31, 41, 51, 61 and 71 only.

The end consonants in cinq, six, huit, and dix are pronounced;

  • at the end of a sentence
  • or in front of a vowel
