More numbers/dates

Dates are pretty straight forward, the only numbers that don’t follow the pattern are one, five and nine.

First – Premier/Première (depending on whether the word you are describing is masculine or feminine)

Second – Deuxième

Third – Troisième

Fourth – Quatrième

Fifth – Cinquième

Sixth – Sixième

Seventh – Septième

Eighth – Huitième

Nineth -Neuvième

Tenth – Dixième

Eleventh – Onzième

Twenty-first – Vingt-et-unième

If you want to write 1st or 2nd in French you must use the last three letters of the word: 1st becomes 1ère, second becomes 2ème etc.
