1   uno, un or una?

  • Use uno when counting, unless referring to something or someone feminine.
  • Use un before a masculine noun and una before a feminine noun even when the nouns are plural.
un hombreone man
una mujerone woman
treinta y un díasthirty-one days
treinta y una nochesthirty-one nights
veintiún añostwenty-one years
veintiuna chicastwenty-one girls

2   cien or ciento?

  • Use cien before both masculine and feminine nouns as well as before mil (meaning thousand) and millones (meaning million in the plural):
cien librosone hundred books
cien mil hombresone hundred thousand men
cien millonesone hundred million
  • Use ciento before other numbers.
ciento un perrosone hundred and one dogs
ciento una ovejasone hundred and one sheep
ciento cincuentaone hundred and fifty
  • Note that you don’t translate the and in 101, 220 and so on.
  • Make doscientos/doscientas, trescientos/trescientas, quinientos/quinientas and so on agree with the noun in question.
doscientas veinte librastwo hundred and twenty pounds
quinientos alumnosfive hundred students
  • Note that setecientos and setecientas have no i after the first s. Similarly, novecientos and novecientas have an o rather than the ue you might expect.

3   Full stop or comma?

  • Use a full stop, not a comma, to separate thousands and millions in figures.
700.000 (setecientos mil)700,000 (seven hundred thousand)
5.000.000 (cinco millones)5,000,000 (five million)
  • Use a comma instead of a decimal point to show decimals in Spanish.
0,5 (cero coma cinco)0.5 (nought point five)
3,4 (tres coma cuatro)3.4 (three point four)

TipShorten primero (meaning first) to primer, and tercero (meaning third) to tercer before a masculine singular noun.
su primer cumpleañoshis first birthday
el tercer premiothe third prize
  • Note that when you are writing these numbers in figures, don’t write 1st, 2nd, 3rd as in English. Use 1o, 1a, 1er, 2o, 2a and 3o, 3a, 3er as required by the noun.
la 2a lecciónthe 2nd lesson
el 3er premiothe 3rd prize

4   primero, segundo, tercero or uno, dos, tres?

  • Apart from primero (meaning first) up to décimo (meaning tenth), as well as centésimo (meaning one hundredth) and milésimo (meaning one thousandth), the ordinal numbers tend not to be used very much in Spanish. Cardinal numbers (ordinary numbers) are used instead.
Carlos terceroCarlos the third
Alfonso treceAlfonso the thirteenth
