Learning to count in Latin is as easy as 1-2-3! Most of the endings are indeclinable, meaning they do not change according to case, number and gender. Only the endings for the numerals 1, 2, and 3 are case and gender-sensitive.

Study these examples of Latin numerals one through twelve:

una puella
one girl

septem angelī
seven angels

duæ columbæ
two doves

octō angelī
eight angels

trēs acolytī
three altar servers

novem nummī

quattuor fēminæ

decem nummī

quinque monachī 
five monks

undecim stellæ
