    Dates

    Hi,

    lets take the date 20-June-2008 as an example. How to express properly that something will happen on this day? I found in Google "Classes to close on June 20" but also "iPhone release on June 20th".
    I would be grateful for answers reffering to the correct spelling and pronounciation as well.

    Best regards
    Leszek

    P.S. Pronounciation means in this case how to say correctly something like "let's meet on 20-June-2008".

    Let's meet on the 20th of June, 2008, is a formal way to say it.
