- Say the names of the date of the month in Mandarin
- To read the names of the date of the month in Pinyin and Characters
Learning the date of the months in Mandarin is actually easier than in English. As soon as a child learns the numbers, it is time to introduce the concept of 31 days of the month. The only word one has to learn is 日（r ì , meaning “sun”, “day”). The rest is easy: you simply add numbers 1-31 in front of日. Some of the days of the month and sentences are:
一日yī rì - 1 st (of the month)2.
二日èr rì - 2 nd (of the month
三日sān rì - 3rd (of the month)
四日sì rì - 4th (of the month)
五日wǔ rì - 5th (of the month)
六日liù rì - 6th (of the month)
七日qī rì - 7th (of the month)3
八日bā rì - 8th (of the month)
九日jiǔ rì - 9th (of the month)
十日shí rì - 10th (of the month)
十一日shí yī rì - 11th (of the month)
十九日shí jiǔ rì - 19th (of the month)
二十日èr shí rì - 2oth (of the month)
二十一日èr shí yī rì - 21st (of the month)
二十八日èr shí bā rì - 28th (of the month)
二十九日èr shí jiǔ rì - 29th (of the month)
三十日sān shí rì - 3oth (of the month)
.三十一日sān shí yī rì - 31st (of the month)
今天几月几日？Jīn tiān jǐ yuè jǐ rì?-What is the date today?
今天三月一日。Jīn tiān sān yuè yī rì. -It is March 1 st today.
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning the months of the year.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose what is the date of the month.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
