    Yes, they do have a look at Belgian French. They changed it
    Props to them tbfh. I've heard that some regions in France do have like ''colloquial'' terms for 70, 80, 90 to overcome it as well thankfully.

    I'm glad, I thought some of the German numbering was weird e.g. 43 (dreiundvierzig - 3 and fourty...) but then French was something else xD

    (You add an 's' to the end because 'nous' is plural, but it does depend on whether the adjective is regular or not. :yep:)
