In this Spanish Medium Review quiz you will be reviewing how to count in the thousands. If you have not already done so, before moving on with this quiz on how to count in the thousand, be sure to check out the quizzes on counting in the hundreds, i.e., Math: Counting in Hundred (Quiz 1) and Math: Counting in Hundreds (Quiz 2), as they will teach you the process of how to count using higher numbers.
The first thing you learned in connection with counting in the hundreds is that cien, which is Spanish for 100, becomes cientos to say hundreds. Then you learned that in order to say 200 you do not say 'dos cien' or 'dos cientos' but, rather, you say 'doscientos' in one word. This rule changes when it comes to the thousands.
To begin with, a thousand in Spanish is the word 'mil'. To then say that 'he has a thousand dollars' you would say, 'él tiene un mil dólares'. Moving forward, in order to say that 'he has two thousand dollars' you would say, 'él tiene dos mil dólares'. Notice that dos and mil are once again separated from each other. Unlike in the hundreds, you do not say dosmil or tresmil, etc.
To say ten thousand in Spanish you would say it as 'diez mil' and to say a hundred thousand it would be said as 'cien mil'. In order to say four hundred thousand it would be said or stated as 'cuatrocientos mil'. Finally, if you were to say three thousand five hundred twenty-five you would say it as 'tres mil quinientos veinte y cinco' (3,525). Notice that the numbers in the hundreds are stated as they should be whether they come before the thousand (mil) or after the thousand.
As you can see, for this quiz you only have to learn one new vocabulary word. That word is mil. However, you do need to pay close attention as to the formatting of how the higher numbers must be stated when put together.
Now, if you believe that you are quite ready to start saying some big, long numbers, then please move on to take the quiz. The quiz contains 5 numbers stated in English and you must find the right Spanish number to match them and then you will be given 5 Spanish numbers and you will need to match them with the correct English number. Watch out for spelling because it can really trip you up.
