Numbers in Serbian

Brojevi

 

Learning numbers in Serbian is one of the first steps for a foreign visitor or a Serbian language learner. When moving around Belgrade, visiting shops or museums, paying a taxi or a bill at a restaurant, it’s good to know your numbers.

In this page you’ll learn all the Serbian numbers from 0 to 1000 in a about 10 minutes.

Sure, you’ll probably need to repeat that, maybe several times, to make sure you’ve learned them. 🙂

Learning numbers in Serbian – first steps

 

Statistically, the first thing people usually learn in a foreign language, is counting to 10. If you’re on this page, you’re probably already familiar with some, if not most, of the Serbian numbers.

If we know nothing of a language, we learn numbers 1 to 10 (and bad words, but that’s another topic). We teach our children to count to 10 in Italian, German or French, or all three.

 

Counting is very easy. It’s like learning a nursery rhyme of 10 words. Just keep repeating until you’ve learned it:

  1. jedan
  2. dva
  3. tri
  4. četiri
  5. pet
  6. šest
  7. sedam
  8. osam
  9. devet
  10. deset

And repeat, counting your fingers to feel the number. That’s the first step.

Use the audio recordings on this page. Click play by the numbers, listen to the sound and repeat aloud to get the pronunciation right.

Learn numbers in Serbian: 11 to 19

Learn numbers from 11 to 19 in Serbian. Note: when you learn the basic numbers 1 to 10, you just add -naest. In some teens, we also change a couple of letters. With a basic number + naest, you’re understood, but to learn them properly: read, listen and repeat aloud!

Learn numbers in Serbian: decades

Learn all decades, or desetice in Serbian: 10, 20, 30, … up to 100. When you learn the basic numbers 2 to 9, just add -deset. In some decades, we also change a couple of letters. With a “basic number + deset” formulation, you’re understood. But if you want to learn these numbers properly, here they are below.

Learn numbers in Serbian: hundreds

Learn all Serbian hundreds or stotine in Serbian, from 100 (sto) to 1000 (hiljadu).
