Welcome to the sixth Croatian lesson about numbers. This time we will learn about cardinal and ordinal numbers, followed by grammar rules, then animal names, finally a conversation in Croatian to help you practice your daily phrases.
|Cardinal and Ordinal - Croatian|
|seventy one sedamdeset jedan|

Croatian cardinal numbers refer to the counting numbers, because they show quantity. For example: I speak two languages. Ordinal numbers on the other hand tell the order of things and their rank: my first language is Croatian. The examples below use numbers in different ways and places to demonstrate how they behave in a sentence.
