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

大家好，歡迎回到 English With Lucy。

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

我今天將會糾正你們很多人一直在犯的一個錯誤。

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

我將會教大家怎麼正確地說和寫日期。

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

讓大部分人困惑的主要原因在於美國日期與英國日期間的差異。

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

美國人會先說月份、然後日期，最後是年份。

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

但英國人會先說日期、然後是月份，最後是年份。

• So, that's the main difference.

這就是主要的差別。

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

我會說我的生日是 10th of June 1994 (1994 年 6 月 10 日)。

• Americans would say June 10th 1994.

美國人則會說 June 10th 1994 。

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

另外一個常見的錯誤是，大家會搞混的基數和序數。

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

這裡是基數：一、二、三、四、五。

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

之後是序數：第一、第二、第三、第四、第五。

• See the difference?

看出差別了嗎？

• Cardinal, ordinal.

基數、序數。

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

接下來是序數的縮寫：第一（1st）、第二（2nd）、第三（3rd）、第四（4th）、第五（5th），依此類推。

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

當我們在寫完整日期的時候，一定會用這種寫法。

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

我們很少會將未經縮寫的序數直接寫在日期上。

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

不過是浪費空間罷了，就像這世界上許多事情一樣。

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

另一個錯誤是同學們經常忘記要用大寫來寫月份。

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

確定你記得所有月份的發音。

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

如果你對於如何學習發音有任何問題，可以觀看上方資訊卡的影片。

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

一月、二月、三月、四月、五月、六月、七月、八月、九月、十月、十一月、十二月。

• Which month is your favorite?

哪一個月份是你的最愛？

• Comment below and tell me why.

在下面的留言區告訴我，並說說理由。

• So, that is how you write the date.

那麼，那就是寫日期的方式。

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

英式英語用 10th of June 1994、美式英語則是 June 10th 1994。

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

你有沒有聽到我怎麼讀英國版本的？

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

雖然寫作 10th June 1994，但是我讀出來是 the 10th of June 1994。

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

所以寫作時，你並不需要寫下 the 和 of，但是你需要讀出它們。

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

如果你說：「我的生日是 10th June 1994」，聽起來會有些奇怪、很勉強和不自然。

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

所以你應該要說，「我的生日是 the 10th of June 1994」。

• In American English, this is not essential.

在美式英語中就沒有這個必要。

• My birthday is June 10th 1994.

我的生日是 June 10th 1994。

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

大家更容易混淆的是，要怎麼表達年份。

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

千禧年以前的年份，例如 1994 年，我們會將它分成兩個部分：18 和 25、10 和 66，舉個例字就是 10 和 66。

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

當超過 2000 年的時候，會開始變得比較複雜。

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

有兩種方法可以表達這種日期。

• You can say twenty and then the number.

你可以說 twenty，然後接著說後面的數字。

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

但如果是 2010 以前的年份，你就得用應文字母 o 加上 nine。

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

所以我們會說 twenty o eight（2008）、twenty o nine（2009）、twenty ten（2010）。

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

否則，你如果說了 twenty nine 的話，聽起來會很像數字 29。

• So, you need to say twenty o nine.

所以，您必須要說 twenty o nine。

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

我比較喜歡說出完整的數字。

• I like to say: two thousand and seventeen.

我會說 two thousand and seventeen（2017）。

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

你必須要記得，and 在這裡非常重要。

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

當要表達 2000 年起的日期時，and 是絕對必要的。

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

Two thousand and one（2001）、two thousand and ten（2010）、two thousand and seventeen（2017）。

• Now, did you hear I say "n", "n"?

有聽到我說的 "n"、"n" 嗎?

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

我只是加一個額外的音節，發 "en" 、 "en" 的音 。

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

Two thousand "en" one（2001）、two thousand "en" seventeen（2017），所以我是用了混母音 /ə/。

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

Two thousand "en" seventeen（2017）、two thousand "en" twelve（2012）。

• So, there you have it!

就是這樣啦！

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

以上就是幫助你正確用英文表達日期的教學指引。

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

希望這個對各位有用、希望你們有學到東西。

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

別忘了到我的社交平台跟我聯繫。

• 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.

我們下堂課見。
