Focus on: the date

enflag Hello-o! Here’s a quick take on basics, because there is a difference between the way we say a date in English and the way we write it.

  • We can write:

16th June, 2013 or 16 June 2013 or 16/06/2013.

  • We can say:

the sixteenth of June two thousand and thirteen or June the sixteenth two thousand and thirteen. 

  • And we ask:

What date is today? or What’s the date today? 

When writing, remember that months should be written with capital letters. Have an excellent week🙂
