    제 생일이 시월 이십삼일이에요.

    • Seokjin Jin

      잘 썼어요. 잘 했어요!

  • Holger

    제 생일이 이십치일 치월 이에요.
    Would this be correct and mean:
    My birthday is 27th of July.
    Nevertheless (is it really: 그럼에도 불구하고, what a long word) 감사합니다, “탉투미인고리안”… ;)

    • Seokjin Jin

      We say month unit first so I can say “제 생일은 칠월 이십칠일이에요.”

    • Holger

    I noticed that Hyunwoo pronounces 몇 월 as myeo dweol while Kyungeun pronounces it as myeo deol then when Hyunwoo repeats after Kyungeun he pronounces it as myeo deol as well! Which one is more natural sounding?

    Also would it be enough to just ask “며칠이에요?” if you’re asking for the date?

    • Seokjin Jin

      Yes, if you just want to know the date, you can say “며칠이에요?”

      When people say the word 몇 월 fast, some people may say it like myeo deol, but myeo dweol is right.
