Phrases in Russian with audio and video
We're going to learn how to count in Russian. If we know the numbers, we'll be able to count, tell prices, the time, dates,... Here you have the chance not only to read them, but to also watch them on video or listen to them as much as you want. Repeat each number out loud and learn to count at least up to 10. Little by little you'll be remembering the numbers and in no time you'll reach 100 (and more).

From 0 to 10
Here you have the numbers in Russian from zero to ten. Like in English, with these numbers you'll build the rest. Listen carefully to the recordings and repeat each number out loud to help you memorize them:
From 11 to 19
The numbers in Russian from 11 to 19 are very easy to remember. Basically, you'll have to say: number + надцать. It's like in English: number + teen. So, if you know how to count up to ten, you can build the rest up to 19 very easily:
From 10 to 100
Now we're going to learn the tens (10, 20, 30,...). As we'll see below, once you know the tens and the units (1, 2, 3,...) you won't have any problem to say any number in Russian from zero to one hundred:
From 100 to 1000
Now it's the time for the hundreds (100, 200, 200,...). Pay attention to the audio and you'll see that the word "hundred" has three different forms: one for 100, another one for 200 to 400 and, finally, a form for the rest of hundreds:
How to count up to 1000
As you will see below, counting up to a thousand in Russian is very simple. You just have to put one number next to the other. For example, to read 765 we just have to say the words corresponding to 700, 60 and 5, without adding anything else:
One hundred and six
two hundred and nineteen
семьсо́т ше́стьдесят пять
syem-sót shes-dye-syát pyat
seven hundred and sixty-five
eight hundred and eighty
