How To Count To 100 In Indonesian

Here’s a brief guide to how the numbers work, from nol (0) to seratus (100).
How To Count To 100 In Indonesian

There are two sets of crucial building blocks when you begin learning a new language: letters and numbers. Because Indonesian uses the Latin alphabet we English speakers are so familiar with, we can skip straight to the numbers. This guide to counting in Indonesian will help you when ordering food, finding the right clothing size (colors will help you here, too), navigating your travels and in countless (pun intended) other situations. Without further ado, let’s get counting!

Counting From Zero To Twenty In Indonesian

Counting in Indonesian is actually very simple — you essentially just combine words for the first 10 numbers to form the higher ones. Let’s start with the basics, the numbers from zero to 20, and then work our way up. You’ll notice that once you get to 12, you simply add the word belas to the base number. Press the play button to hear how each word is pronounced.

The Rest Of The Tens

Next, we’ll move on to the remaining foundational numbers. All you have to do is combine the word for the base number with the word puluh. Pronunciation is key when speaking a new language, so be sure to press play to hear how the numbers are supposed to sound.

thirtytiga puluh
fortyempat puluh
fiftylima puluh
sixtyenam puluh
seventytujuh puluh
eightydelapan puluh
ninetysembilan puluh
one hundredseratus

Putting It All Together

Filling in the rest of the numbers follows a similar pattern. Simply add the digit to the ten, so 31 would be tiga puluh satuand 99 would be sembilan puluh sembilan. It’s that easy!
