Hi everyone,
Hope 2011 has got off with a kick for all of you!  
Could someone please tell me if in England you say twenty eleven (2011) for the year or do you continue to say two thousand and eleven? Logically you should say twenty eleven like in the past.  My students often ask me, but I īve been out of the UK for too long so really don īt know!
Thanks in advance for some answers.

Both ways are still being said although the BBC are increasingly using twenty eleven. Also, the Olympics are always referred to as twenty twelve so I think that this will become the usual way.
