"Two thousand ten" is more correct in my dialect.

Yep, but I believe two thousand and ten is more British way of spelling. So technically both are correct.
Two thousand ten (American)
Two thousand and ten (British).
Anyway, Duo does accept Do you remember the year 2010? as well.

I think technically "and" is reserved for a decimal point, as in 200 and 45 hundredths (200.45) and not used between the places to the left of the decimal, as in two thousand "and" ten (2010). I don't think the "and" should be used here.

American math(s) teacher here. The word "and" is reserved to read the decimal point. A lot of people do it but it is not considered correct.

I would never ever say two thousand and ten. The number is spoken two thousand ten. Period.

In English it is incorrect to say two thousand AND ten. The proper form for numbers omits the AND unless you are adding numbers or speaking about two different entities.

In my experience, those who speak British dialect are wont to add in "and" into number names. It is so frequent, that I think that they would consider that form as correct and proper.
