Days of the week in English

Here are some examples:

– Saturday is his favorite day of the week because he plays football.



 The meeting is on Thursday at 10:30 .



 We’ve got an appointment on Tuesday morning.



As you can see, we often use ‘on’ before the days of the week.

 Halloween is in October.



 



Dates in English



When we say the date in English we normally use ordinal numbers (first, second, third, etc) instead of cardinal numbers (one, two, three, etc). Let’s look at these ordinal numbers:



 



1st – first



2nd – second



3rd – third



4th – fourth



5th – fifth



6th – sixth



7th – seventh



8th – eighth



9th – ninth



10th – tenth



 



The numbers from 11-19 follow the same pattern of adding -th to the number:



 



11th – eleventh



12th – twelfth (the letter v changes to f)



13th – thirteenth



14th – fourteenth



15th – fifteenth



16th – sixteenth



17th – seventeenth



18th – eighteenth



19th – nineteenth



 



The numbers ending in -ty, like 20 and 30, change the -y to -i and add -eth. For example:



 



20 – twentieth



30 – thirtieth



21st – twenty-first



22nd – twenty-second



23rd – twenty-third



24th – twenty-fourth



25th – twenty-fifth



26th – twenty-sixth



27th – twenty-seventh



28th – twenty-eighth



29th – twenty-ninth



30th – thirtieth



31st – thirty-first



 



Here are some examples:



 Paolo’s birthday is on June 3rd. (pronounced ‘on June the third’)



 New Year’s Day is on 1st January. (pronounced ‘on the first of January’)



 We’re flying back home on Tuesday, April 10th. (pronounced ‘on Tuesday, April the tenth’)



 They’re having a party on 16th November. (pronounced on the sixteenth of November.)



 Our Wedding Anniversary is on August 11th. (pronounced ‘on August the eleventh’.)



 



Years in English



 



In English, most years are separated into two numbers. For example:



1750 – seventeen fifty



1826 – eighteen twenty-six



1984 – nineteen eighty-four



2017 – twenty seventeen



The first year of each century is pronounced like this:



1400 – fourteen hundred



1700 – seventeen hundred



2000 – two thousand



The first nine years of a century are pronounced like this:



1401 – fourteen oh one



1701 – seventeen oh one



2001 – two thousand and one



We can refer to a decade (a period of ten years) in this way:



1960-1969 – The ‘60s – pronounced ‘the sixties’



1980-1989 – The ‘80s – pronounced ‘the eighties’.



2000 – 2009 – The 2000s – pronounced ‘the two thousands’



 



For example:



 The Beatles were famous in the sixties.



 My parents got married in the seventies.



 Maradona played for Napoli in the eighties.



 Where were you living in the nineties?



 The internet became popular worldwide in the two thousands.
