Spanish Lesson 9 – Months, Days, Seasons


In this unit we’ll discover the words for seasons, days of the week and months of the year.

Days of the Week

Lunes – Monday

Martes – Tuesday

Miércoles – Wednesday

Jueves – Thursday

Viernes – Friday

Sábado – Saturday

Domingo – Sunday

To say ‘on Saturday…’ we don’t literally say ‘on’ we just say ‘the Saturday…’.  The word for ‘the’ is ‘el’

El domingo – On Sunday

El lunes – On Monday

El martes tengo doce años – I am 12 on Tuesday

To say ‘on Saturdays’ you say ‘Los Sábados’

Los sábados tengo sueño – I am (get) sleepy on Saturdays

Seasons

El invierno – Winter

La primavera – Spring

El verano – Summer

El otoño – Autumn

To say ‘in/during + season’ you say ‘durante’.

Durante el verano… – During Summer…

Durante el otoño tengo frío – I am (get) cold in the Autumn

Months of the Year

Enero – January

Febrero – February

Marzo – March

Abril – April

Mayo – May

Junio – June

Julio – July

Agosto – August

Septiembre – September

Octubre – October

Noviembre – November

Diciembre – December

Remember!  ‘J’ is like a hard ‘H’ sound.  Similar to the ‘ch’ in Scottish ‘Loch

So: Junio / Julio = ‘Hunio / Hulio’

(NOT jewnio / jewlio)

In + month = En + month

En mayo – In May

Tengo catorce años en junio – I am 14 in June

 

¡Hasta la vista!
