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 Spain, located in Nerja (Malaga), we help you learn this basic vocabulary.
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.
