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.)
