    English date:How to write the small letters after the number


    You probably already know to write the date in English: (American English)

     

     

     

    Monday, April 25th 2020

    Thursday, May, 21st 2016

     

     

    But how can I choose the red part?

    It's very easy

     

    Monday, April 25th 2020

    =

    Monday, the twenty-fifth of April 2020 

     

    1st, 2nd, 3rd are ordinal numbers - numbers which allow us to define a thing's position in a series.

    You should learn them. They are below:

    1stfirst
    2ndsecond
    3rdthird (from 'three')
    4thfourth
    5thfifth (from 'five')
    6thsixth
    7thseventh
    8theighth (ONE 't')
    9thninth (NO 'e')
    10thtenth
    11th eleventh
    12th twelfth (from 'two')
    13th thirteenth
    14thfourteenth
    15thfifteenth
    16thsixteenth
    17thseventeenth
    18theighteenth
    19thnineteenth
    20thtwentieth (Warning: -y => -i)

    23rdtwenty-third
    24thtwenty-fourth
    25thtwenty-fifth
    26thtwenty-sixth
    27thtwenty-seventh
    28thtwenty-eighth (one 't')
    29thtwenty-ninth (NO 'e')
    30ththirtieth
    31stthirty-first

     

    Monday, April 24.. 2036

    The number ends in "-th". The correct spelling is:

    Monday, April 24th 2036
    (Monday, the twenty-fourth of April 2036)

     

    Be careful with these ordinal numbers: 11th, 12th and 13th.

    Good luck!
