Learn Arabic – Arabic in 3 Minutes – Numbers 10-100

Marḥaban ǧamīʿan, ʾanā Carole! Hi everybody!
I’m Carole. Welcome to’s Al-ʿarabiyyah
fi ṯalāṯi daqāʾiq. The fastest, easiest, and most fun way to learn Arabic. In the last lesson, we learned the digits
Al-ʾarqām from one to nine. Have you forgotten? Here I’ll tell you again: Wāḥid,Iṯnān,ṯalāṯah,Arbaʿah,ḫamsah,Sittah,Sabʿah,ṯamāniah,Tisʿah. In Arabic, after digit 9, the digits or al-ʾarqām
starting number 10 become al-ʾaʿdād or “numbers”. And now let’s continue from
ten. ʿašarah [slowly] ʿašarah. ʾiḥdā ʿašar [slowly]ʾiḥdā ʿašar ʾiṯnā ʿašar. [slowly] ʾiṯnā ʿašar. ṯalāṯatah ʿašar [slowly]ṯalāṯatah ʿašar ʾarbaʿatah ʿašar [slowly]ʾarbaʿatah ʿašar ḫamsatah ʿašar [slowly] ḫamsatahʿašar sittatahʿašar [slowly]sittatah ʿašar sabʿatah ʿašar [slowly] sabʿatah ʿašar ṯamāniatah ʿašar [slowly] ṯamāniatah ʿašar tisʿatahʿašar [slowly] tisʿatahʿašar And finally we have: ʿišrūn [slowly]ʿišrūn Okay, now repeat after me. I’ll say the numbers
and give you time to repeat each one. 10.ʿašarah 11. ʾiḥdā ʿašar 12. ʾiṯnā ʿašar. 13. ṯalāṯatah ʿašar 14. ʾarbaʿatah ʿašar 15. ḫamsatah ʿašar 16. Sittatahʿašar 17. Sabʿatah ʿašar 18. ṯamāniatah ʿašar 19. Tisʿatahʿašar 20. ʿišrūn These numbers may seem harder to remember,
but you really just have to memorize ʾiḥdā ʿašar, iṯnā ʿašar andʿišrūn. As for the rest, you just need to replace
the “h” ending of the digits we learned before with “tah” followed by the word
ʿašar. Let’s not stop at 20! Counting from ten
to one hundred is super easy! Now I’ll give you the tens: ṯalāṯūn ʾarbaʿūn ḫamsūn sittūn sabʿūn ṯamānūn tisʿūn miʾah While you have to memorize a few of these
numbers, there are a couple of tricks that will make memorizing them incredibly easy!
Notice that ṯalāṯūn is “thirty” and ʾarbaʿūn is “forty”. So ‘forty’
or ʾarbaʿūn is simply ʾarbaʿah with a different ending. the final -ah is replaced
with -ūn. [slowly] ʾarbaʿūn For example, “eighty” is ṯamānūn. The
digit eight , which you learned in the last lesson, is ṯamāniah. So in this case the
-iah was removed and replaced with ūn. ṯamānūn [slowly] ṯamānūn The last thing we’ll learn in this lesson
is how to form compound numbers above twenty. This is also super easy! Take the tens and simply add before them the
digits you learned in the previous lesson, with some slight changes. Just remember that
above twenty wa or “and” comes between the two words. Let’s try it out. How would you say “fifty-six” in Arabic?
Let’s take it step-by-step. “Fifty” is ḫamsūn, and then add the changed “six” and “and”
or wa before fifty. So in other words it is “Six and fifty”. Six which is “Sittah”, becomes Sittatun
when you replacing the final -h with -tun. Sittatun wa ḫamsūn! It’s done! Isn’t
that easy? Let’s make another number, for instance,
“ninety-eight.” Take “ninety”, tisʿūn, and add before it
the changed “eight”, ṯamāniatun: ṯamāniatun wa tisʿūn ! After only two lessons, you are now able to
count to one hundred in Arabic! In the next lesson we are going to put your
number knowledge to use! Do you have all the skills you need to go shopping in Arabic speaking
countries? If not, I’ll be waiting for you in our next Arabic in 3 minutes. ʾilā al-liqāʾi fi al-marrati al qādimah! See you in the next lesson!
