Math: Counting with Ordinal Numbers!
Christmas Day is on the 25th of December, but how would you say 25th if you were speaking Spanish?

Math: Counting with Ordinal Numbers!

In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be going over how to count in Spanish using ordinal numbers. In fact, this quiz is a continuation of the Spanish Difficult Review quiz titled Math: Who’s On First?. In that quiz you learned how to count the Spanish ordinal numbers of first through twentieth. Now, in this quiz, you will learn how to count from the twenty-first through the five hundredth.

Remember, ordinal numbers are adjectives in that they are used to describe other objects/nouns. Now let’s take a look at these higher ordinal numbers.


twenty-first vigésimo primero
twenty-second vigésimo segundo
twenty-third vigésimo tercero
twenty-fourth vigésimo cuarto
twenty-fifth vigésimo quinto [Note that this will continue through twenty-ninth.]
thirtieth trigésimo
thirty-first trigésimo primero
thirty-second trigésimo segundo
thirty-third trigésimo tercero [Note that this will continue through thirty-ninth.]
fortieth cuadragésimo [Note that this will continue through forty-ninth.]
fiftieth quincuagésimo [Note that this will continue through fifty-ninth.]
sixtieth sexagésimo [Note that this will continue through sixty-ninth.]
seventieth septuagésimo [Note that this will continue through seventy-ninth.]
eightieth octogésimo [Note that this will continue through eighty-ninth.]
ninetieth nonagésimo [Note that this will continue through ninety-ninth.]
one hundredth centésimo
two hundredth ducentésimo
three hundredth tricentésimo
four hundredth cuadringentésimo
five hundredth quingentésimo

As you can see, once you get to the twentieth through the ninetieth ordinal numbers, the first through the ninth are simply added to them. These ordinal numbers are rather long and many of them contain accent marks so please take enough time to really get to know them, be familiar with them, pronounce them and spell them. Once you are really comfortable, move on to the quiz section.

The quiz is rather simple and quick in that you will be given the ordinal number in English and you will need to locate the Spanish translation of that number. You will need to know how to spell to find the correct answer. Challenge yourself when taking the quiz by NOT looking back at this introduction to find your answer.
