Liczebniki (part 2 & 3)

Today we'll take a look at ordinal and collective numerals.

Ordinal numerals are simple and user-friendly. They act like adjectives, so once you should have no problem, once you've learnt the main form of the numeral.
Collective numerals are a bit more complicated. When it comes to them, there's a few things you have to remember:
a) form
b) the three categories of nouns you count using these numerals
c) declension
d) agreement with the noun (i.e. the case they require for the noun that follows them).
They may not be pretty, but the good news is that once you've figured out the mechanism, you won't have any problems, not to mention that you won't actually be using these numerals very often.


  1. Chin dobry,
    nice blog. by the way, you could show your lessons (with audio) using the embeddable 'MLN Player' (it is FREE).
    have a look at this Polish lesson:

    Just double click on a sentence to hear it.

    You can easily make Polish notes/lessons and embed them in your blog or link to them.
    Anyway, all the best.
