### French - counting to 900

We just learned how to count to 100 in French! Wow!

Just like in English, in French they just use the number and then the word for hundred.
So 200 in French is deux cent.

200 deux cent - sounds like doo-sown /?/

300 trois cent - sounds like twah-sown /?/

400 quatre cent - sounds like cat-uh-ah-son /?/

500 cinq cent - sounds like sah-sown /?/

600 six cent - sounds like see-sown /?/

700 sept cent - sounds like set-sown /?/

800 huit cent - sounds like oo-ee-sown /?/

900 neuf cent - sounds like nef-sown /?/

### French - counting to ninety nine

We just learned how to count to 89 in French, let's keep going!

Just like seventy was really sixty-ten and eighty was four-twenties, ninety is also a little different.

90 quatre-vingts dix - sounds like cat-uh-ah vah-n dee /?/
91 quatre-vingt onze - sounds like cat-uh-ah vah owns /?/
92 quatre-vingt douze - sounds like cat-uh-ah vah dooz /?/

### French - Counting to twenty nine

We just learned how to count to 20 in French, let's keep going!

21 vingt et un - sounds like vah-n-tay-un /?/
22 vingt-deux - sounds like vah-n-doo /?/
23 vingt-trois - sounds like vah-n-twah /?/

27 vingt-sept - sounds like vah-n-set /?/
28 vingt-huit - sounds like vah-n-oo-ee /?/
29 vingt-neuf - sounds like vah-n-nef /?/

Notice that for 22-29, it's always the word for 20 vingt (vah-n)
and then the word for the number by itself.

So 25 is 20 vingt (vah-n) and 5 cinc (sunk)
so it's vingt-cinc (vah-n-sunk).

It's pretty much the same way for all the numbers up to 79!
