The Spanish days of the week are…

– lunes (Monday)

– martes (Tuesday)

– miércoles (Wednesday)

– jueves (Thursday)

– viernes (Friday)

– sábado (Saturday)

– domingo (Sunday)

In Spanish, you need to use an article for the days of the week.

Some English articles are a, an, the.

When talking about a specific day, use the Spanish article el. This is equivalent to the English word: on.

– ¿Quieres ir al cine el sábado? (Do you want to go to the movies on Saturday?)

– El lunes es mi cumpleaños. (My birthday is on Monday.)

– ¿Que vas a hacer el miercoles? (What are you doing on Wednesday? )

When talking about things you normally do, use los (also means the). This is equivalent to adding -s to the days of the week.

– Los sábados voy a clase de baile. (On Saturdays I go to dance class.)

– Los domingos visito a mis abuelos. (On Sundays I visit my grandparents.)

– ¿Que haces los viernes? (What do you do on Fridays?)

Don’t use any article to say what day of the week it is.

– ¿Qué día es hoy? (What day is today?)

– Es lunes. (It is Monday.)
