This Vocabulary lesson will help you to say and write dates in English.
Watch the video then do the revision exercises. If you need more help then read the text below before trying the exercises.
With dates what we say and what we write are different.
We write . . .
‘The lightning struck on 16th April 2016,’
. . . but we say . . .
‘The lightning struck on the sixteenth of April 2000 and 16.’
‘The storm on 24th May 1965 was the worst ever.’
‘The storm on the twenty-fourth of May 1965 was the worst ever.’
Also, date first, then month, then year. It’s logical and clear.
16th April 2016 or 16/04/06
Remember: The sixteenth of April 2000 and 16.
