I typed '19th of June' instead of June 19th.... Wrong!?

"the 19th of June" is now accepted.

It should be accepted

Happy birthday!

When it actually is your birthday: what a coincidence!

June Nineteenth should be accepted.

"My birthday is June 10th" was accepted, but is wrong. Unfortunately there is no way to report wrong answers marked as correct, so I chose, "The dictionary hints on hover are wrong or missing."

生 (shēng) = to be born/to give birth/life/to grow/raw/student
日 (rì) = sun/day
生日 (shēngri) = birthday

We previously saw 生 in:

生 (shēng) = to be born/to give birth/life/to grow/raw/student
病 (bìng) = illness/disease/to fall ill
生病 (shēng bìng) = to fall ill

学生 (xuésheng) = student

医生(yīshēng) = doctor

My birthday wish is for people to stop complaining about their answer not being accepted in the comments and instead just report the question.

The comment section is for discussion about the language, not for redundant and useless complaining.

How do you say "My date of birth was....", including the year?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Asdracles

My birthday is in June 19th should also be correct, right?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/RaynaLThompson

Your English grammar is incorrect. "My birthday is on..." when specifying the day/date. You could say "My birthday is in..." if only mentioning the year or month ("My birthday is in June." but "My birthday is on June 19th.")

BD ought to be accepted for birthday. Get a grip Duolingo

19/06 should be accepted


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/brbonner

If they accept numbers for months and days, it could be ambiguous in certain cases. If the day is anywhere from the 1st to the 12th, then we wouldn't know if, say, 09/07 is July 9th or September 7th due to the fact that some countries use DD/MM format while others use MM/DD format.

Just accept both cases. I see 04/05 everywhere and i never know if is april or may.
