Subject: Counting to ten in Spanish

A lot of people count to ten in Spanish. I know that one is uno, two 
is dos, and three is tres. What is four through ten in Spanish?

Hi, Vincent.

Here's a source for the numbers, not just in Spanish, but in ALL major 
languages (those spoken by at least a million people)!
