When learning Spanish, the days of the week is a basic vocabulary. These are terms that present some changes compared to English; but they are not a problem for learning. From Escuela de Idiomas Nerja, a Spanish academy in Malaga, located in Nerja, Spain, we help you learn this basic vocabulary in our escuela de español.
Learn Spanish language is complicated due to flexible syntax and multiple ways of referring to a concept.
Of course, mastering Spanish is not only satisfactory, but it opens the doors to communicate in the 2nd most spoken language in the world, and predominant in America.
Knowing even a few Spanish phrases is really useful if you’re or planning to visit a Spanish-speaking country. Even more so if you’re living in such a country.
How to say: Days of the Week in Spanish
In Spanish-speaking countries, the week begins on Monday:
- lunes: Monday
- martes: Tuesday
- miércoles: Wednesday
- jueves: Thursday
- viernes: Friday
- sábado: Saturday
- domingo: Sunday
The days of the week are not capitalized and all masculine:
El lunes, el martes, el miércoles, el jueves, el viernes, el sábado y el domingo
Days of the week ending in -s do not change form in the plural. Only the article changes “el/los”:
- No juego al fútbol el lunes: I don’t play footbal on Monday.
- No canto los sábados: I don’tsing on Saturday.
- Hay muchas fiestas los miércoles: There are many parties on Wednesday.
In Spanish, the present tense of the indicative is sometimes used to express the near future. English does this too.
- Viajamos el lunes: We (will) travel on Monday.
- Mañana es lunes: Tomorrow (will be) is Monday.
