Question: What is the correct way to write dates?

The international standard recommends writing the date as year, then month, then the day: YYYY-MM-DD. So if both the Australian and American used this, they would both write the date as 2019-02-03.

How do you write dates grammatically correct?

When writing in American English, the right way to write a date is: May 1, 2016. The month always comes before the date and year. But, in a statement, you have to use ordinal numbers first and write. For example: The seminar will be held on the third of May 2016.

The United States is one of the few countries that use “mm-dd-yyyy” as their date format–which is very very unique! The day is written first and the year last in most countries (dd-mm-yyyy) and some nations, such as Iran, Korea, and China, write the year first and the day last (yyyy-mm-dd).
