Unformatted text preview: Numbers seventy to seventy-nine are configured in the form of soixante-[10-19]. For example seventy is soixante-dix (60-10), seventy-three is soixante-treize (60-13), and seventy-seven is soixante-dix-sept (60-10-7). Number eighty is configured in the form of quatre-vingts (4 - 20's) || catr vahn || eighty Numbers eighty-one to ninty-nine are configured in the form of quatre-vingt-[01-19]. For example eighty-one is quatre-vingt-un (4*20-one), ninty is quatre-vingt-dix (4*20-10), and ninty-four is quatre-vingt-quatorze(4*20-14). une dizaine (one ten) une douzaine (one dozen) cent 100 une centaine (one hundred) [deux - neuf] cents 200-900 mille 1.000 un millier (one thousand) (un) million 1.000.000 (un) milliard 1.000.000.000 For 70-79, it builds upon "soixante" but past that it builds upon a combination of terms for 80-99 Only the first (21,31,41,51,etc) have "et un"; but past this it is simply both words consecutively (vingt-six, trente-trois, etc) For 100-199, it looks much like this list already save that "cent" is added before the rest of the number; this continues up to 1000 and onward.

English time, (one) hour, o'clock half-hour (half an hour) morning noon afternoon night midnight daytime Use heure in between the hour and the minutes when telling the time, e.g., Il est cinq heures dix Note that there is no "a.m." or "p.m." in French. Use du matin, de l'après midi, and du soir to disambiguate a given time. "Il est sept heures du soir" makes it clear that it is 7 o'clock at night, and not in the morning. Alternatively, you could use the 24-hour system: "Il est dix-neuf heures" has no ambiguity; time is often expressed in this fashion, particularly in professional/commercial settings.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
