  • Hello everyone, and welcome back to English with Lucy.

    皆さんこんにちは、English with Lucy におかえりなさい。

  • Today, I am going to correct an error that many of you have been making.


  • I'm gonna tell you how to say and write dates properly.


  • Now, the main thing that confuses people is the difference between American dates and British dates.


  • Americans will say the month first, then the day, then the year.


  • British people, however, will say the day first, then the month, then the year.


  • So, that's the main difference.


  • I would say my date of birth is the 10th of June 1994.

    イギリス英語は the 10th of June 1994 と言います。

  • Americans would say June 10th 1994.

    アメリカ人は June 10th 1994。

  • Now, another error that people make is, they get confused between cardinal and ordinal numbers.

    さて、人々がするもう一つの間違いは、基数 (物を数えるときの数字) と序数 (日付や順番を言うときの数字) を混同してしまうことです。

  • Here are the cardinal numbers: one, two, three, four, five.

    基数は「one, two, three, four, five」

  • Then, we have the ordinal numbers: first, second, third, fourth, fifth.

    次に、序数は「first, second, third, fourth, fifth」です。

  • See the difference?


  • Cardinal, ordinal.


  • Now, the abbreviation of ordinal numbers are as follows: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, and so on.

    さて、序数の省略は「1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th」です。

  • And we will always use this format when writing out dates in full.


  • It's very rare to see an unabbreviated ordinal number in a written date.


  • It's just a waste of space, like many things on this planet.

    (省略しない書き方は) この地球上の多くのものと同じように、スペースの無駄です。

  • Another error is that students often forget that we write months with a capital letter.


  • Make sure you fully understand the pronunciation of the months of the year.


  • If you have any doubts about how to learn pronunciation, you can see this video in the card above.


  • January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, December.


  • Which month is your favorite?


  • Comment below and tell me why.


  • So, that is how you write the date.


  • In English, the 10th of June 1994, and in American, June 10th 1994.

    イギリスでは the 10th of June 1994、アメリカでは June 10th 1994。

  • Now, did you hear me when I read out the British version?


  • It's written "10th June 1994", but I said the 10th of June 1994.

    書くときは「10th June 1994」と書きますが、私は「the 10th of June 1994」と言いました。

  • So, you don't need to write "the" and "of", but you do need to say it.


  • If you say, "Um, my birthday is 10th June 1994," it sounds a bit weird; it sounds a bit forced and unnatural.

    「私の誕生日は「10th June 1994」です」と言うと、ちょっと変な感じ、少し強引で不自然な感じに聞こえます。

  • So, you want to say, "My birth date is the 10th of June 1994."

    なので「私の誕生日は「the 10th of June 1994」です。」と言いましょう。

  • In American English, this is not essential.


  • My birthday is June 10th 1994.

    私の誕生日は June 10th 1994 です。

  • Now, something else that people tend to get really confused is how to say years.


  • With years before the millennium, 1994, we know that we split it up into 2 sections: 18, 25; 10, 66; 10, 66, for example.

    2000年以前の年、例えば1994年は、2つの部分に分けます、例えば:18、25 (1825年); 10、66 (1066年) 。

  • Now, when we get past the year 2000, it starts to get a little bit more complicated.


  • Now, there are two acceptable ways of saying the dates.


  • You can say twenty and then the number.

    最初20 (twenty) と言い、その後に数字を言います。

  • Although, with the years before 2010, you want to say: o, nine.

    しかし、2010年以前であれば、その数字を o (オー), 9 (ナイン) と言えます。

  • So you would say, twenty o eight, twenty o nine, twenty ten.

    例えば、twenty o eight, twenty o nine, twenty ten。

  • Otherwise, if you say twenty nine, it sounds like the number 29.

    そういわないと、twenty nine (2009)と言うと、29だと聞こえます。

  • So, you need to say twenty o nine.

    なので、twenty o nine と言う必要があります。

  • I, however, prefer to say the full number.


  • I like to say: two thousand and seventeen.

    つまり、two thousand and seventeen がいいです。

  • The important thing that you must remember is the "and".


  • It is absolutely essential that you include the "and" when you say a date starting with the year 2000.


  • Two thousand and one, two thousand and ten, two thousand and seventeen.

    Two thousand and one、 two thousand and ten、 two thousand and seventeen.

  • Now, did you hear I say "n", "n"?


  • I just add an extra syllable and go "en", "en".


  • Two thousand "en" one, two thousand "en" seventeen; so I'm using the schwa sound.

    Two thousand 「en」 one、 two thousand 「en」 seventeen、私は「シュワー音」を使っています。

  • Two thousand "en" seventeen, two thousand "en" twelve.

    Two thousand 「en」 seventeen、two thousand 「en」 twelve.

  • So, there you have it!


  • So, there you have ityour definitive guide on how to read dates in English.


  • I hope that was useful for you; I hope you learned something.


  • Don't forget to connect with me on all of my social media.

    私の SNS で私とつながることを忘れないでください。

  • You've got my Instagram and my Facebook where I host a free live pronunciation lesson every Sunday at 4:30 GMT.


  • Don't forget to give this video a like, and if this is your first time visiting, make sure you subscribe.


  • I will see you soon for another lesson.
