    Hi people! I have a doubt with how can I read in English the year 2100. I have seen that some people read it "twenty-one hundred" and some others read it "two thousand one hundred". Which one is better to use?

    Creo que la segunda opción es más formal.

    Twenty-one hundred is more common, probably just because it rolls off the tongue easier.

    I agree that "twenty-one hundred" is the more natural-sounding option if you are reading the year out loud.

    Here are a couple of other suggestions to help you improve your English. :)

    You are correct. Americans (estadunidenses) usually say, "twenty-one hundred", but that is spoken American English only. If you are writing it out for a formal document (legal) use "two thousand one hundred". In other English-speaking countries, the US habit is understood but not often used by natives (UK, Australia, Caribbean etc.).
