Quelle est la date d'aujourd'hui? - What's the date today?

Quel jour sommes-nous? - What day is it?

When saying or writing the date in French, you say the day, then the date, then the month, just as in English.

Aujourd'hui c'est lundi, cinq juin. - Today is Monday 5th June.

The date is said as a cardinal number eg 5 not 5th, except for the first of the month which is le premier.

le 5 juin - 5th June

C'est le premier janvier. - It's the 1st January.
