How To Count To 100 In Polish

There are so many things you may need to count when you’re on a vacation in Poland. For instance: how many pierogi you’ve eaten, or how many shots of vodka you’ve drunk. Thus, learning Polish numbers will likely come in handy during your stay there. It’s vocab that can sometimes be overlooked when you’re first learning the language, even though you’ll encounter Polish numbers often in your studies and your travels. If you happen to need a quick intro, we compiled this quick guide to counting to 100 in Polish.

We could just give you all the numbers in a row, but instead, we’re going to break it down a bit more. If you go beyond just memorizing some of the numbers and instead learn how the numbers work, you’ll be more likely to remember them later on.

And if you need some help with the pronunciation, you can read about that in a different guide!

Putting It All Together

For the most part, Polish numbers are really easy. Once you get past 20, you make numbers by just naming the tens place and then the ones place. So 42 would be czterdzieści dwa, 89 would be osiemdziesiąt osiem and so on.

If you’re not just naming numbers, but instead are counting something, the words for a few of the numbers can change. “One” for example would be jeden for masculine nouns, jedna for feminine nouns and jedno for neuter nouns. Similarly, all the endings up to the number four change depending on the case. Coming from English, which doesn’t have alternate forms of numbers, this can be a bit confusing. But once you’ve got these down, you’ll be ready to tackle the rest of the Polish language!
