Learning the **Esperanto Numbers** displayed below is vital to the language. Esperanto cardinal number convey the "how many" they're also known as "counting numbers," because they show quantity.

In Esperanto, numbers from zero to ten are unique and therefore need to be memorized individually: nul, unu, du, tri, kvar, kvin, ses, sep, ok, naŭ, dek. Numbers from eleven and onwards are formed by using the following pattern: for example, eleven can be formed by using ten plus one: 11= dek unu. Twenty is written as one word: dudek (“two ten”). 22 = dudek du. 45 = kvardek kvin. 100 = cent. 136 = cent tridek ses. 200 = ducent. 1 000 (not “1,000”) = mil. 1 523 = mil kvincent dudek tri. Notice that hyphens and commas are not used as they are in English and some other languages.
