I wrote out « dix-septième siècle » instead of « XVIIe siècle », but was counted off for that. Is it not correct to spell out the ordinal numbers?
Dictation exercise A2
Thank you for you comment! You can write '17th century' that way: 'dix-septième siècle' or with Roman numerals 'XVIIème siècle'. It is also accepted in Arabic numerals: '17ème siècle'. It has now been corrected. ;-)
Merci et bonne journée !
