Numbers in German

I’m really trying to learn how to say numbers in German in their various forms, but the problem is the number is usually written with the number (1, 2nd, 1/2) instead of written out (one, second, one half) , so I have no clue how it should be said. I do try to look them up, but I don’t always know if I’m saying/writing them out correctly. To give two examples, Heinrich VIII. (Heinrich der achte), am 23. Juli 2010 (am dreiundzwanzigsten Juli Zweitausendzehn). Are there any websites that write the numbers out, so I can learn them?

Thanks, TheDoctor!

So, to make sure I have this correct. Masculine, feminine, and neuter nouns all end in ‘te’ for the ordinal numbers. For example, das erste Auto, die zweite Tür, der erste Mensch. Plural nouns, however, have an ending of ‘ten’ as in the example of die ersten Menschen.

Does the rule above still apply when der, die, das decline? Also, what about the words the ‘von’ and ‘vom’? For example, vom 21. April bis 20. Mai, how would that be written out?

das erste Auto :slight_smile: die zweite Tür - ok :slight_smile: der erste Mensch - ok :slight_smile:

Zum Beispiel: Das Seminar vom 21. April bis 20. Mai 2010 in Berlin.

I dont think that you can see it in written, it is a date. :slight_smile:

As for “von” and “vom” → vom = von dem - 3th case from “der” (der, des, “dem”, den)
Der einundzwanzigste…von dem einundzwanzigste…vom einundzwanzigste

Ok thanks!

viel Glück mit deinem Sprachenlernen :slight_smile:

vom einundzwanzigsten Juli bis dreiundzwanzigsten August (you need the -n) (m/n, s)

von der einundzwanzigsten bis zur dreiundzwanzigsten Reihe (f, s)
