    Re: How does it say?

    Welcome to the forum.

    1. "How does it say?" is not grammatical. Perhaps you meant "How do we say this?"
    2. A thread title should include some or all of the words you are querying. A good title for this would be "The first day of school".
    3. We always ask you to write complete sentences for us, instead of asking about fragments.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: How does it say?

    When does the article put or omit? in this case "the first day of school" or "first day of school"?

    In most cases, probably "the first day of school" but please write an entire sentence.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
