Re: [BelajarEnglish] which is better?
- Dear Nur Sazlina,
Normally I use: 2) I am on leave on 2nd May 2001./
I will be on leave on 2nd May 2001
However, in spoken English, the word 'the'as in no. 2
will be mentioned.
Get 2nd opinion.
As I see it...

Subject: [BelajarEnglish] which is better?
which sentence is better or are both sentences acceptable?
1) i am on leave on the 2nd of May 2001.
If we are using "the", then we need to add "of"
2) i am on leave on 2nd may 2001.
This is correct.
