French Numbers

21 Feb 2008 on learning

French numerals are same as the English or the American. But for handwriting French numerals is slightly different.

The French write two numbers differently than Anericans do: the number 1 has a little hook on top, which makes it look like a 7. So, to distinguish a 1 from a 7, a line is put through the 7.
