    Exclamation How to say a date. (Pronunciation)

    how to say a date. I mean the pronunciation.

    Someone made me confused about that. Normally I said:

    I was born on January twenty second.

    But someone said I was wrong, it should be say like:

    I was born on January twenty two.

    Or

    can I say I am going to see you on april twenty first or twenty one?

    which one is correct??? Thank you.
    (If you found any grammar mistakes in this thread, please indicated it. thanks)
