HOW TO COUNT FROM 1 TO 20 IN ITALIAN
Counting from numbers 1 to 20 in Italian is simple and follows a similar structure to counting in English. Much like in English, you would place the number between 1 and 9 at the end of the tens number.
For example, the number 32 or “trentadue” is 30 (trenta) and 2 (due). Put “trenta” and “due” together and you have 32.

Uno psicologo (A psychologist) – Masculine
Una psicologa (A psychologist) – Feminine
Indefinite articles in Italian include un, una and uno. The -a in una is often dropped when the name begins with a vowel.
