Sometimes zwo (tsvoh) is used instead of zwei to avoid confusion with drei when talking on the telephone.  The use of commas and periods is switched in German, though a space is commonly used to separate thousandths, i.e. 1,000 would be 1 000. When saying telephone numbers, you can either say each number individually or group them in twos. For years, you use the hundreds: 1972 is neunzehn hundert zweiundsiebzig; or the thousands: 2005 is zwei tausend fünf.

Wann sind Sie geboren? When were you born?
Ich bin in 1982 geboren. I was born in 1982.
