Numbers with a Spanish Twist

For the last 25 years I have been working with a friend on a Spanish course called Soleado, and whenever I travel to a Spanish-speaking country I am always on the lookout for vocabulary-building items, and one which always comes in handy is números (numbers).

This is my latest collections of numbers with a Spanish twist.
