 Numbers  Analysis

 200      двести

 два -> две + сти

   the elements -сти, -ста, -сот

  mean "hundred"

 300      триста

 три + ста

 400      четыреста

 четыре + ста

 500      пятьсот


 600      шестьсот 

 шесть + сот

 700      семьсот


 800      восемьсот


 900      девятьсот


 1000    тысяча



  • The combination of letters тьс is pronounced as [ц]: пятьсот [п'ицот], девятьсот [д'в'ицот].
  • The combination of letters стьс is pronounced as [сс]: шестьсот [шиссот].
  • The soft sign after м in семьсот and восемьсот is spelled historically and does not influence the pronunciation of м in these particular words. The letter м is pronounced hard here.

Listen as many times as you need, read the numbers aloud at least three times each and memorize them.

Here are some examples of compound numbers:

1121     тысяча сто двадцать один

1234     тысяча двести тридцать четыре
