Learners of Welsh will no doubt have scratched their heads at some point over the traditional version of the language’s two counting systems, the vigesimal system.
The vigesimal system of counting is based on the number 20, and while Welsh is not unique in this – French and Danish also use a base of 20 for some numbers – it is different enough from the decimal system to cause some anguish for learners! Although it now coexists with a much more familiar, decimal system of counting in modern Welsh, it is still considered an important part of the language, and still used for things like ages, dates and times.
Now, Android users can download our free Number Whizz app to learn and practise these tricky numbers on the go! Featuring presentations, number games and the ultra-handy Number Writer, it’s a great way to give your brain a Welsh workout.
