When traveling abroad, it is often difficult to work out which coins and notes are which. Working out the change can be even harder. The following Spanish words will be useful for talking about what money you are handing over and what change you get back. * uno - one * dos - two * cinco - five * diez - 10 * veinte - 20 * veintecinco - 25 * cincuenta - 50 * cien - 100 * doscientos - 200 * quinientos - 500
"quinientos - 500"? Shouldn't that be 'quincientos ...'? (I think there's a spelling mistake there. Comparing it to 100 and 200, it looks like a letter "c" got dropped.)
I thought the same thing (doing a different sort of course), Kenneth, but then I Googled both words and found only 37 results for "quinicientos." Seems like "quinientos" is correct.
