Translation:What day of the week is June sixth?
I'm fairly certain 何よう日 should be pronounced なんようび and not なにようひ like the TTS currently says.
The course creators didn't expect it as a possible answer. Report it and it may be accepted in future updates.
I thought that what's the date was "nan nichi desu ka"? Are there other ways to ask the same thing?
「何日ですか」（なんにちですな）means what day it is generally, for example 1st, 4th, 16th etc.
「何曜日ですか」（なんようびですか）specifies the day of the week, for example Monday, Thursday etc.
what day of the week is june 6 -- is CORRECT Duolingo, please learn your English!!!
"the 6th of June is what day?" Is an extremely common phrasing and one I would use personally. It was just rejected.
It probably wants you to know that 何よう日 specifically means "day of the week".
~Sixth (of) June is not accepted as an answer, and yet June (the) Sixth is??
"What day of the week will the sixth of June be?" I keep getting marked wrong for putting the date before the month! :,-(
"What day of the week is this June 6th?" isn't a valid answer? You may assume you're talking about the current year's calendar, and the days of the week are always shifting
> You may assume you're talking about the current year's calendar
No, you may not. The Japanese sentence does not specify what year you're talking about, so you can't add more specificity to the translation than is there in this case.
