hello all,

How do you put all the commas between the components of dates? As a starter, is the format below correct? Thank you so much.

Please contact me at my mobile as I will be in Canada from 5th May to 30th June, 2007.

I was taught to place a comma after the day and before the year, e.g.:

Sunday, 29th April, 2007.

Your example is correctly written. There are, however, other accepted patterns.

PS: By the way, I'd say 'contact/call me on my mobile'.

In BrE, 'on' is used. In AmE, 'at' is correct.

No, Americans would say "on my cellEmotion: phone". Emotion: smile

We would use the word "at" with a specific telephone number:

You can reach me at 555-1212.

Yes, that's the difference between BE and AmE.

Slightly O.T.:
Did you know that if you do a word for word translation, the Germans call someone "under" a number? Emotion: big smile

Hi Cogar

I wouldn't put a comma between June, which is a word, and 2007:
He'll arrive on 30th June 2007.
He'll arrive on 30 June 2007.
He'll arrive on June 30, 2007.
He'll arrive on June 30th, 2007.

And the latest in BrE:
He'll arrive on June 30 2007.

As you can see, just about anything goes.Emotion: smile

June 30, 2007 and 6/30/07are still very typical formats in the US. Emotion: smile
Hi everyone,
by the way, even if you write "June 30", "March 12", etc., those are still pronounced "June 30th", "March 12th", aren't they? Emotion: smile
