Spanish can be confusing, even for native speakers. When you have mastered counting in Spanish you will need to pay attention to other basic Spanish expression for fractions, numerals, percents, etc.
The Fundación de Español Urgente (Fundéu) is a non-profit organization whose “main objective is to promote the proper use of Spanish in the media.” They have created short video capsules to answer questions about common basic Spanish mistakes. These five videos will help you when discussing numbers in Spanish.

Diferencias entre «bimensual»/«bimestral» y «bianual»/«bienal»
