El 15 de julio de 19 49. In writing is the year eg 1949 always expressed in figures or can it be words?
This question relates to:Spanish lesson "Expressing dates in Spanish"

In Spanish, like in English, the year is generally written in numbers (1956, 2009, ...) but when you say it you need to literally say it as if it was a number, unlike in English which is expressed in "pairs".
So, in Spanish:
1975 ="mil / novecientos / setenta y cinco".
But in English:
1975 = "nineteen / seventy five"
