¿Cúando es tu cumpleaños?

Para responder a la pregunta When is your birthday?, existen dos formas: una corta y otra larga.

months and days answer

En ambos casos, es preciso conocer algunos aspectos como:

  • La diferencia entre números cardinales y ordinales
  • Los formatos de fechas
  • Los meses en inglés

Números cardinales y ordinales

Hay que diferenciar entre los números cardinales y ordinales:

Números cardinales (cardinal numbers)

Los cardinal numbers expresan cantidad. Por ejemplo:

  • I have two dogs.
  • There are twenty students in class.
  • They have four children.

Números ordinales (ordinal numbers)

Los ordinal numbers se usan en los siguientes casos:

  1. Para decir fechas.
    My birthday is on July 24th.

  2. Para referirse a siglos (centuries):
    My grandparents lived here in the 19th century

  3. Para especificar los pisos de un edificio:
    My office is on the third floor.

  4. Para especificar orden y secuencia:
    I was the first one in that class.

En la siguiente imagen podemos observar la diferencia entre ambos tipos de números.

Cómo se escriben los ordinal numbers

Los números ordinales en inglés se obtienen al añadir el sufijo TH a la mayoría de los números cardinales. Pero, hay algunas excepciones. En estos casos se añaden los sufijos ST, ND y RD, tal y como sucede con los números 1°, 2° y 3°:

Hi John. You have really good pronunciation. It is a powerful thing to improve listening when we are studying the English language.

About the language learning with videos. I think that makes artificial language immersion can contribute to learning fast and easily. And then, with a high-quality class like that, if you are in the basic level and use that video. You can use the close caption subtitle in “Subtitle settings”. When you don´t know some words, you can stop the video and the first step is to try to understand it in the context. The second step is finding the mining on an English dictionary like WordReference. The final step is to translate the word and the complete sentence in an online translator like Google Translate or Deepl.

Asking a partner or the teacher to describe some word that you know in Spanish but not in English is another powerful way. When you describe the thing, you build in your mind a really strong image of that. When someone tells you the name of that thing, you had built a strong connection between the mining image and the word, and will be very difficult to forget that.

My final advice is to use Grammarly. Write complete sentences and later look up the mistakes. With that online App, you must receive real-time feedback. Repeat those activities every day like a complement of Platzi´s courses.

Dale al corazón para que no se pierda este comentario.

Es importante que repitas una y otra vez la pronunciación.

This was such a great class! Actually, I don’t remember learning ordinal numbers very well when I was at school. I’ve been struggling a lot with numbers even though I am at an advanced level. I live in the US and one day, someone was very rude to me when I wanted to order some cupcakes in advance and I said “May 22” he stopped me and yelled at me “MAY TWENTY-SECOND” I felt very bad 😦 I hope after this class I get better and I could start saying numbers right.
