Writing date 26 July in English can be done in a variety of ways. Here are some common ways to write the date 26 July in American English.


When you prefer to write the date in American English, usually the month comes before the day, then followed by the year. For example: The 26th day of the month July, in the year 2019, then the date in American English should be written as:

Jul 26

July 26

July 26, 2019

Friday, July 26, 2019

Dates written as July the 26th or July 26th are not incorrect, but are less common in American English.



How to write the date 26 July in numbers?


In American English, if you want to write the date in all-numeric, you will need to use the following style. Here, too, the month comes first, then the day, then the year.

07/26/19   or   07.26.19   or   07-26-19

07/26/2019   or   07.26.2019   or   07-26-2019

Jul. 26, 2019


The International Standard date formats

In an effort to avoid miscommunication between people using the British date format and those using the American date format, an International Standard was developed. If an Australian writes July 26, 2019 as 26/07/2019, but an American writes the same date as 07/26/2019, who’s right? The international standard recommends writing the date as year, then month, then the day: YYYY-MM-DD. So if both the Australian and American used this, they would both write the date as 2019-0726-.

Writing the date this way avoids confusion by placing the year first. Much of Asia uses this form when writing the date. For example:

July 26, 2019 would be written as 2019 July 26. (Did you notice there’s no comma?).
