Many students like to write the date every time they take a class. How is this date written in a notebook? Thanks!

Hi,

A short answer is that it's your notebook, so write it however you wish. I'd write 8/Feb/2006.

How you write dates that other people will read and understand is an interesting question. Briefly, if you write in numbers, it can often be unclear whether you are writing day/month or month/day, eg 8//3/06. So, write in a way that makes it clear, eg 8/Feb/06 or 8/31/06.

Thanks Clive you always help me first. How a teacher write the date in the blackboard?
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Hi again,

I'd write 9/Feb/06.

I was in Mexico City a month ago. I didn't see you.

It depends upon the teacher and the date format used in the country where the teacher lives.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
However I remembered that some English teachers would write something like:

February 10th, 2006.

is that right?

I hope you had enjoyed your trip Emotion: smile I didn't either see you! Emotion: stick out tongue
In the United States, a teacher would typically write the date as February 10, 2006. If he or she is a bit lazy, then it might be written Feb. 10, 2006. The shorthand method for the same date would be 2/10/06.
Hi Sanz,

You asked about February 10th, 2006.

Sure, that's fine. Just a little bit long. The 'th' is quite often omitted.
