How to Remember and Practice German Numbers

Tips for memorising the numbers

Mastering German numbers gets easier with some clever memory tricks and regular practice. Start by learning how German numbers are built, especially the tricky ones from 13 to 19 and the multiples of ten. Break the numbers into small groups and tackle one group at a time.

Strategies for practicing and reinforcing number fluency

A simple way to do this is by using numbers daily. For a bit of fun, why dive into some German number puzzles or even Sudoku? These games are not just entertaining; they’re a good mental workout in German.

Also, listen to numbers in German as much as you can. When you watch a German film or listen to a podcast, pay extra attention to the numbers. This will help you get better at understanding and saying them.

And don’t forget about digital tools like flashcards or language apps. They’re great for practice on the go. They immediately give you feedback and help you see where you’re improving.

Using numbers in real-life situations (ordering, negotiating, etc.)

Using German numbers in everyday situations, like ordering in restaurants or discussing prices, helps with your language skills. When you’re out eating, you can say “Zwei Kaffees, bitte” (two coffees, please) or “Ein Stück Kuchen” (one piece of cake) to order. When shopping, knowing how to say numbers can help you negotiate prices. You might say, “Kann ich das für fünfzehn Euro bekommen?” (Can I get this for fifteen euros?).


Knowing German numbers is vital in everyday life and working in German-speaking areas. This basic part of the language helps you communicate effectively, whether shopping, doing business, or just chatting.

Learning how German numbers work, from 0 to 100, builds a strong base for better language skills and confidence. Using games, real-world activities, and tech tools in your daily practice helps you remember and speak more fluently.
