Learning Greek Numbers
|Greek Numbers Ena-Deka, 1-10|
|1 = Ena||2 = Dio||3 = Tria||4 = Tessera||5 = Pente|
|6 = Exi||7 = Efta||8 = Okto||9 = Enia||10 = Deka|
|11 = Endeka||12 = Dodeka||13 = Deka Tria||14 = Deka Tessera||15 = Deka Pente|
|16 = Deka Exi||17 = Deka Efta||18 = Deka Okto||19 = Deka Enia||20 = Ikosi|
You may notice, the greek number for 10 is Deka and the greek numbers for 1 – 9 follow Deka.
It’s similar once you get passed 20 – Ikosi. So 21 is Ikosi+ena 31, 41 and so on.
It is basically the same system as English numerals. The single figures are from 1-9.
Below is a list of the greek numbers for 30, 40, 50 and so on.
Remember that all you need to add for 31-39, 41-49, 51-59 and upwards, is the single numerals.
|Trianda to Eneninda 30-90|
|30 = Trianda||40 = Saranda||50 = Peninda||60 = Exinda|
|70 = Evdominda||80 = Ogdonda||90 = Eneninda|

I hope you find the above helps you with your learning.
If you haven’t already done so, take a look at the greek alphabet page or learn some phrases here.
If you don’t know which greek books will best suit your needs, here are my favourites for a beginner. A few have CDs included which are handy to carry around with you. I play them in the car and at home.
You can learn faster if you make it fun. Enjoy!
