061 – Ordinal Russian numbers (first, second, third etc.) from 1 to 10

In Russian, as in English and many other languages, the ordinal numerals look differently than the cardinal ones. Let’s learn them today.

1 – один – пе́рвый
2 – два – второ́й
3 – три – тре́тий
4 – четы́ре – четвёртый
5 – пять – пя́тый
6 – шесть – шесто́й
7 – семь – седьмо́й
8 – во́семь – восьмо́й
9 – де́вять – девя́тый
10 – де́сять – деся́тый

Used with nouns, the ordinal Russian numbers change the same way as Russian adjectives do. For example:

пе́рвый эта́ж – the first floor
втора́я попы́тка – the second try
тре́тье* ме́сто – the third place
четвёртая маши́на спра́ва – the fourth car on the right side
пя́тое окно́ сле́ва – the fifth window on the let side

* – exception
