French numbers can be a bit tricky. Just when you think you’ve got the pattern figured out, the rules suddenly change and you’re left thinking, “wait, what?”
So let’s start off gently. Even if you’ve only been studying French half-heartedly until now, you’ve probably stumbled across a few of the numbers from zero to ten, so these fellas shouldn’t come as too much of a shock.
How much? / how many?
Combien? How much? / How many?
