    Pronunciation

    Dear teachers!
    How do you pronounce years in English?
    For example 1600s-1700s.

    I am not a teacher.

    I say 'the sixteen hundreds/the seventeen hundreds'.

    Re: Pronunciation

    I agree with the previous answer as well. In BrE it is 'the sixteen hundreds/the seventeen hundreds'.
