Numbers in Portuguese


We should learn numbers in Portuguese because in real life we often use them when we are talking or writing. Some numbers change according to the gender of the nouns they apply to. Pronunciations are written in square brackets.

Lets start with numbers from 0-10:

1. um [oom] / uma [oo-mah]
2. dois [doh-eesh] / duas [doo-ash]
3. tres [treh-sh]
4. quatro [kwa-troo]
5. cinco [cin-koo]
6. seis [say-eesh]
7. sete [set]
8. oito  [oy-too]
9. nove  [noh-vee]
10. dez [desh]

Make sure that you have learned these numbers very well. If so, you can start to learn numbers in Portuguese from 11 to 20. Here we go:

11. onze [on-zee]
12. doze [doh-zee]
13. treze [tray-zee]

17. dezessete [deh-zah-set]
18. dezoito [deh-zoy-too]
