Listen and repeat

Learn to understand and pronounce French phone numbers.

How to use these listening exercises

  1. I strongly recommend that you master the numbers 0 to 99* before moving into phone numbers.
  2. Note that French phone numbers are typically stated in groups of two:
         01 20 54 98 76 = zéro un, vingt, cinquante-quatre, quatre-vingt-dix-huit, soixante-seize
  3. The sound files are MP3s and you can either listen to them online or save them to your computer for later. If you don’t know how to do this or can’t hear anything, please read help with sound files.
  4. Click “listen.” You can either listen and repeat the numbers or else practice writing them in French, in English, or as digits.
  5. After listening to the sound file for the random exercises, click “reveal” to check what you heard.
  6. You can listen as many times as you like.
