Arabic numbers

Arabic uses the same decimal system used across the world. The only difference is the symbols to represent each number. Therefore to understand written Arabic numbers you will only need to learn ten symbols.

Much like other languages the spoken numbers are slightly more complex with longer numbers having groupings. As will be familiar in your native language the additional elements to learn will be teens, tens, hundreds, thousands, etc.

Once you are familiar with the first 20 numbers the tens will offer a slight difference to Latin languages. For spoken Arabic numbers the singulars is pronounced before the tens. Eg. three thirty rather than thirty three.
