thumbs up, provided these changes are applied:

+Date.parse=returns a number, the UTC time value corresponding to the date and time interpreted from given string argument, returns NAN if the argument is unrecognisable string

... from the given string argument, returns NaN if the argument is not recognized

+Date.UTC=returns number of milliseconds in the given date object since january 1,1970,00:00:00 universal time

returns the number ... since January 1, 1970, 00:00:00 universal time

(returns *the* number / string value / year ... - please apply in all other places)
(month names are written in upper case, please apply in all other places)
(spaces after commas, please apply in all other places)

+Date.prototype.toString=returns string value representing given date object

... representing the given date object

+Date.prototype.toDateString=returns string value representing date portion of the given date object

... representing the date portion ...

(also ... representing *the* time portion ... etc., please apply accordingly elsewhere)

+Date.prototype.valueOf=returns number of milliseconds between 1 january 1970 00:00:00 UTC and the given date

Please use a consistent date formatting. "1. January 1970" or "January 1, 1970" in all places.

+Date.prototype.getDay=returns the day of the week for the given date according to local time, 0 represents sunday

Sunday (day names begin with upper case - please apply in all places)

+Date.prototype.getSeconds=returns the seconds in the given date, according to locale time

Is it "local time" or "locale time"? (I think "local" is right.) Please be consistent in all places.

+Date.prototype.toUTCString=converts given date to a string using UTC time zone

converts the given date ...
