    Hi,

    I was given a date which was wrong, so I had to respond and ask for confirmation. What I wanted to say was:

    The 10th is the Thursday, not Wednesday.

    Not being sure I just wrote 'est-ce que vous pouvez vérifier la date'? But it's been bugging me. Could I simply have said:

    Le 10 est jeudi, pas mecredi?

    Thanks!

    Hi dj20b22 and welcome to the forums :)

    I would say:
    "Le 10, c'est (bien) le jeudi, pas le mercredi."

    I would rather use an indefinite article as far as I'm concerned.

    Le 10, c'est un jeudi, pas un mercredi.

    Good to know! I could've used either article in English too and both would be correct; the Thursday or a Thursday.
