Appendix D - Numbers

Tagalog speakers use numbers from Tagalog, Spanish and English. Although certain groups of people have preferences of which numbers to use, there is a lot of variation so it’s impossible to give you accurate guidelines.

For example, the year is usually said in English, the time is often said in Spanish, and I hear a lot of counting done in Tagalog, but any of these can be interchanged. One thing most native speakers agree upon is that English numbers are most often used in general.

However, to help you understand numbers when you hear them I encourage you to learn them and use them. Here are the number of tables for your convenience. I recommend you make a pass at memorizing them here as soon as you encounter them in a lesson.

Don’t be concerned if they don’t stick well at first; there will be a lot of repetition and they will become automatic eventually. If at any time you’re in doubt, revisit this appendix and review them again.
