Notes:
The Spanish word "Número" means "Number". Its abbreviation (No.) is "Nº"Número 1:
We use either "un" or "uno", both are correct.

"Un" is used when followed by a noun (substantive). For example: "Necesito un bolígrafo" ("I need a pen"), where "bolígrafo" is the noun or substantive.

"Uno" is used when no noun is following it. For example: "Necesito uno" ("I need one")

"Una" is used with feminine nouns. For example: "Una bonita boda" ("A nice wedding").

The rest of numbers in this list have the same form for masculine and feminine, except "veintiuno" (masculine) and veintiuna" (feminine).

Examples: "Veintiún libros" ("Twenty one books") (masculine) - "Veintiuna historias" ("Twenty one stories") (feminine).
Numbers from 12 to 15 end in -ce.Numbers from 16 to 19 follow this structure: "10 and something". That is, for example: 16 = diez y seis. When forming one word, the preposition "y" becomes "i" = dieciséis. Note there are two more changes: First, the final "-z" in diez becomes "c" and second, "-séis" takes the accent on letter "e".Numbers from 21 to 29 are also following the same structure: "veinte and something": veinte y uno --> veintiuno.Finally, accents. Note numbers "dos", "tres" and "seis" don't have an accent. But when forming numbers 16, 22, 23 and 26, they take the accent.
I have created a new video, so that you can listen to the pronunciation of these numbers and associate the Spanish pronunciation with their spelling. Watch the video.

Do you want to make some exercises? If so, here is the link to a quiz I have prepared about Spanish numbers, from number 1 to 29. Go to the quiz.
