No, I haven't. Because I'm still in the Elementary school. if I have been a University student I would like to have a part time job to earn money to help my parents.

I wonder how is writing days of the week, date, month and year in a right order. For examples, in this lesson :" Course 1: July 1st- 15". And about A LOST DOG lesson of reading skill part, it writes : " On Monday 10th June". I don't know this rule very clearly. Can you help me? Thanks a lot!

Hi lekimkhanh0109,
We usually use ordinal numbers for dates. Here they are: 1 - first - 1st / 2 - second - 2nd / 3 - third -  3rd / 4 - fourth - 4th / 5 - fifth - 5th etc. The higher numbers continue on with 'th' - it's only 1st, 2nd and 3rd (also 21st, 22nd etc.) that are different. Does that help?
Best wishes, Jo (LearnEnglish Teens Team)

Thanks but you misunderstood. I mean the order of days of a week, date, month and year. 1st July or July 1st? And something like that. Are they have a rule?

Hi again :)
There's no rule about whether it should be the month, the number then the year or the number, month, then the year. So don't worry, they are all acceptable!

No, I haven't because my mom. She don't like what I work. But, when I was 10 years old, a woman offers me a job (she will pay me maybe 200$ for week) but I had to reject that.

Yes, I have.
I helped with housework such as cleaning and shopping during summer vacation and earned spending money from my Mom!

No, I haven't had any summer job.
IDK, maybe, I've already been planing to have fun with friends and continue with basektball.
