Dates

1 Writing


A common way to write the day’s date is like this:

30 March 1983
27 July 1984


There are other possibilities:

30th March, 1983

March 30(th) 1983

30.3.83

British and American people write all-figure’ dates differently: British people put the day first, Americans put the month first.

6.4.77 = 6 April in Britain, June 4 in the USA.


2 Speaking

30 March 1983 (British) = March the thirtieth, nineteen eighty OR ‘The thirtieth of March, nineteen eighty-three’

30 March 1983 (American) = ‘March thirtieth, nineteen eighty-three’
