### Numbers

*We are going to talk about cardinal numbers in today’s lesson. Three, two one let’s go!*

#### Cardinal numbers

Let me start with the basic cardinal numbers from zero to ten.

zero — NOLL

one — ETT, two — TVÅ

three — TRE

four — FYRA

five — FEM

six — SEX

seven — SJU

eight — ÅTTA

nine — NIO

ten — TIO

Good job! Now we can count to ten. There is one number that you should be aware of and it’s number seven. I used to mix it up with *sjö* which stands for *lake* in the Swedish language. Ok, after a short break **we should continue to 20.**

eleven — ELVA

twelve — TOLV

thirteen — TRETTON

fourteen — FJORTON

fifteen — FEMTON

sixteen — SEXTON

seventeen — SJUTTON

eighteen — ARTON

nineteen — NITTON

twenty — TJUGO

Now we only need to take a few steps forward to learn all the other numbers…

twenty-one — TJUGOETT

twenty-two — TJUGOTVÅ

thirty — TRETTIO

forty — FYRTIO

fifty — FEMTIO

sixty — SEXTIO

seventy — SJUTIO

eighty — ÅTTIO

ninety — NITTIO

hundred — HUNDRA

I have one joke for you: What did the 0 say to the 8? „Nice belt“. Funny, right? Ok, back to business.

one hundred and one —HUNDRA ETT

two hundred —TVÅHUNDRA

three hundred —TREHUNDRA

thousand —TUSEN

ten thousand —TIO TUSEN

one million —EN MILJON

one billion —EN MILJARD

Let me make one side note. You never say *and* between long numbers in Swedish. If we have 3.658 for instance, it would be tretusensexhundrafemtioåtta.

#### Ordinal numbers

The second part of the lesson are the ordinal numbers and basic mathematical operators. Let’s get the ball rolling!

We are talking about numbers, right? But we still don’t know what’s the Swedish expression for *a number.* It’s *ett tal.*

first —FÖRSTA

second —ANDRA

third —TREDJE

fourth —FJÄRDE

fifth —FEMTE

sixth —SJÄTTE

seventh —SJUNDE

eighth —ÅTTONDE

ninth —NIONDE

tenth —TIONDE

Ok, this is little bit complicated and we need an intermission right now to be able to digest more information later on. Do you know why number 6 was afraid of the number 7? Because 7 ate 9.

eleventh —ELFTE

twelfth —TOLFTE

thirteenth —TRETTONDE

fourteenth —FJORTONDE

fifteenth —FEMTONDE

sixteenth —SEXTONDE

seventeenth —SJUTTONDE

eighteenth —ARTONDE

nineteenth —NITTONDE

twentieth —TJUGONDE

#### Mathematical operators

minus (-)MINUS

plus (+)PLUS

times (x)GÅNGER

divided (/) —DELAT MED

Great job! We have finished our next lesson and now we know all the numbers in Swedish! See you in the very next lesson.
