German numbers | How to count in German (1 to 999,999)

You don’t need to learn all German numbers up to 999,999 by heart. If you see the pattern you are able to continue the series of numbers by yourself.

Usually we don’t write numbers in words. We write one to ten in words, then we write just figures 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 …

Please also note that in some cases the g at the end of a word sounds rather like a ch especially when the word ends with ig.

By the way, numbers in German means Zahlen and to count means zählen.

Period or comma in numbers?

I know that the use of the comma and the period in German numbers often leads to confusion. You just have to remember the following:

In German we use the comma as the decimal separator and the period as the thousands separator.

In Germany it is in contrast to e.g. England. In England you write it the other way around.

In Germany:
one thousand = 1.000

In England: 
one thousand = 1,000
