    Two different dates

    Hi there,

    Could you help me find the correct option?

    I want to use two different dates. What should I say?

    e.g.

    a) On June 19th and June 24th we will...
    or
    b) On the 19th and 24th June 2017 we will...

    Re: Two different dates

    Welcome to the forum, trainst.

    You can use either version (add 2017 to the first, seeing that you put it into the second); they are both perfectly clear.

    In general, American English speakers say/write June 19(th) while British English speakers say/write 19(th) June​, but it's not a big deal - there's a lot of cross-over and we all understand each other's preferred format.
