Learn Spanish Numbers with Music [Conteo Regresivo]
Almost everyone knows to count from 1 to 10 in Spanish–before they even learned the language.
In this episode, we’ll review useful vocabulary related to numbers in Spanish with the salsa song Conteo Regresivo by Gilberto Santa Rosa.
A few notes about large numbers:
In Latin America, the decimal point (punto) is used in place of the comma.
In the United States we would write 3,000 (Three thousand)
In Latin America, it would be written 3.000 (Tres mil)
Here is an example of a large number with money:
$3,000.30 (Three thousand dollars and 30 cents)
3.000,30 (Tres mil dólares y treinta centavos)
