3º ciclo, Ordinal numbers

Writing dates in English

We write the date in English in different ways. The most common way in British English is to write the day of the month first (ordinal numbers), then the month (starting with a capital letter) and then the year:

 7th September, 2021

*You can write first the day of the week.

Monday, 1st December, 1997

When we say dates in English , we say ‘the’ before the number followed by ‘of’. For example,

It’s the first of January.


In English, DAYS AND MONTHS always with an initial capital: January, February, Tuesday, Sunday,…


ORDINAL NUMBERS indicate the position or the order.

Let’s learn some of them. Listen and repeat the song.

And now, let’s practise them. Don’t forget to send me this worksheet. 



We use “ON” with a calendar date, a day of the week, or a special day , such as a birthday or anniversary.

Halloween is ON (the) 31st (of) October.

My birthday is ON (the) 21st (of) November.

Let’s practise!!!
