Numbers in the Polish Language

Part of the Polish For Dummies Cheat Sheet (UK Edition)

Whether you want to ask for directions to a certain address, find out which bus or train to catch, or want to exchange phone numbers, use this helpful table to figure out how to pronounce numbers in Polish.

Combining numbers in Polish works similarly to English: 25 is dwadzieścia pięć (dva-djyesh-ch’ya pyen’ch’) (twenty-five), and for 783 you say siedemset osiemdziesiąt trzy (shye-dem-set o-sh’yem-djye-sh’yont tshih) (seven-hundred eighty-three). However, for 1,422, Polish speakers say one thousand, four hundred twenty-two, tysiąc czterysta dwadzieścia dwa (tih-shyonts chte-rih-sta dva-djyesh-chya dva) and never combine it as fourteen hundred twenty-two.
