Hello! Can you say what are the possible formats of writing down a date except 10(th) September? Is it possible to write September 10th10.09 etc? Thank you in advance!

Hi Olesia. What we can say is to try to listen carefully to the audio and adhere strictly to the date format mentioned. We know in the audio (September the tenth), and usually written (10 September). But anyway, in official Cambridge answer key only (10 September) and (10th September) are correct answers, so we always stick to the answer key.
