1 100 Numbers In Spanish - Text Explanation 1
The number for one in Spanish is uno. It loses its o and becomes un when used before a masculine noun.
When used before a feminine noun it changes to una.
- un niño ..... one boy
- una niña ..... one girl
You should use uno when counting generically, as in:
- one, two, three, four, etc
- uno, dos, tres, cuatro, etc
You should use un or una when counting specifically, as in:
- one banana, one apple, etc
- un plátano, una manzana, etc
So, having explained the various forms of one in Spanish and when to use them, let´s now get started on the list of 1 100 Numbers In Spanish.
