How do you say years in German? I mean, how do you say the numbers. For example in english we say the year 2010: as two thousand and ten or twenty ten. Is is the same way in German? Zwei tausend zehn?

Yes and no. "Zweitausendzehn" or "Zweitausendundzehn" (Zweitausend und Zehn). "Zwanzigzehn" is not correct. But you can hear it sometimes. (From people who have heard it in English before?) 1008 = Eintausendacht 1130 = Elfhundertdreißig 1399 = Dreizehnhundertneunundneunzig 1800 = Achtzehnhundert 1985 = Neunzehnhundertfünfundachtzig 2000 = Zweitausend 2001 = Zweitausendeins 2027 = Zweitausendsiebenundzwanzig
