October third is my birthday! 十月三日は私の誕生日です! Juugatsu Mikka wa Watashi no Tanjoubi desu!
On October third, Duo asked me what day it was.
It's October third
Does the rule for not needing particles on relative dates still apply here or do you need the は to emphasize that you're saying yesterday specifically was October third
I didn't put は in the sentence and it got marked wrong.
I'm guessing that in this specific sentence you need to emphasize that 'yesterday' is the topic of the sentence
What is DLJapanese's reasoning for putting 十月 on a single tile, but 三 日 on two separate tiles. Is there some internal consistency that I am missing?
There's no reason. The system can't easily determine where one word ends and another begins because Japanese doesn't use spaces. Often, the system splits words wrong, but at this point there's nothing we can do about it.
How is October pronounced?
I wrote 3日１０月 but it was marked as wrong, and that it should have been 10月3日. Does it actually matter what order you put these dates in?
In Japan, you list the month before the date.
