Lesson 027

Russian numbers from 0 to 100


We think it’s safe to say that nobody likes to learn numbers. But when you know them, so many things become easier: asking for a price, paying for the goods, making appointments and so on. So today, we dedicate the lesson to the Russian numbers.

Russian numbers from 0 to 10

Listen to the audio and repeat after it:

0 – ноль / нуль [nol’ / nul’]

1 – оди́н [a-déen]

2 – два [dva]

3 – три [ trée ]

4 – четы́ре [chee-tý-rye]

5 – пять [pyat’]

6 – шесть [shest’]

7 – семь [sem’]

8 – во́семь [vó-seem’]

9 – де́вять [dyé-veet’]

10 – де́сять [dyé-seet’]

Russian numbers from 11 to 19

After you learned the basics, making the next bunch of Russian numbers is mostly a matter of adding -надцать to the number you already know (although the base slightly changes in some cases, it’s better to simply memorize all of them):

11 – оди́ннадцать [a-dée-na-tsat’]

12 – двена́дцать [dvee-ná-tsat’]

13 – трина́дцать [tree-ná-tsat’]

14 – четы́рнадцать [chee-týr-na-tsat’]

15 – пятна́дцать [peet-ná-tsat’]

16 – шестна́дцать [shees-na-tsat’]

17 – семна́дцать [seem-ná-tsat’]

18 – восемна́дцать [va-seem-ná-tsat’]

19 – девятна́дцать [dee-veet-ná-tsat’]

Tens in Russian

There is no strict logic behind how the tens are composed in the Russian language. So it is better to simply memorize them too.

Here they are:

20 – два́дцать [dvá-tsat’]

30 – три́дцать [trée-tsat’]

40 – со́рок [só-rak]

50 – пятьдеся́т [peet’-dee-syát]

60 – шестьдеся́т [sheest’-dee-syát]

70 – се́мьдесят [syém’-dee-syát]

80 – во́семьдесят [vó-seem’-dee-syát]

90 – девяно́сто [dee-vee-nós-ta]

100 – сто [sto]

Compound numbers

Making compound numbers in Russian is very easy: to compose a number with 2 digits just say two words one by one:

21 – два́дцать оди́н

32 – три́дцать два

44 – со́рок четы́ре

57 – пятьдеся́т семь

63 – шестьдеся́т три

78 – се́мьдесят во́семь

85 – во́семьдесят пять

99 – девяно́сто де́вять

Congratulations! Now you can count from 0 to 100 in Russian! Repeat the numbers a few times so you memorize them better.
