Learning French numbers : Words sound different than how they are written
You will notice that only now we will show you the French spelling of the French numbers. This is because you will notice that not all written letters in the French language are pronounced:
How to count in French from 0 to 10 :
- zéro = 0
- un = 1
- deux = 2
- trois = 3
- quatre = 4
- cinq = 5
- six = 6
- sept = 7
- huit = 8
- neuf = 9
- dix = 10
Written letters you don’t pronounce:
- de ‘x’ in the number dix is pronounced as an ‘s’ and you won’t hear it at all in the French number deux
- you don’t hear the ‘p’ in the French number sept
- you don’t pronounce the ‘s’ in the French number trois
Why do the French write letters they don’t pronounce?
Because French spelling still looks like how it was around the 1600’s. However French pronunciation has evolved since, especially more letters have been "swallowed" but still need to be written.
That’s why you best learn how to speak French by first listening and repeating the French words, before you go into the spelling. This method will ensure you to learn French quickly, more quickly than starting to learn French based on a textbook.
