Days of the Week in Spanish

By 13 May, 2020 June 2nd, 2020 EIN

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.

Other terms in Spanish: Good Morning in Spanish. Hi in Spanish, Hello in Spanish, Morning in Spanish, Numbers in Spanish
