math query

I am a high school math teacher with a historical question. Bill Dunham suggested I ask you. Why in both the Romance and Germanic languages are eleven and twelve so different from the rest of the teens, and why is fifteen in the Romance languages different from the rest of the teens?
If you can help, I'd really appreciate it! Bonnie Leitch New Braunfels High School New Braunfels, Texas
