Days of the week
What are the days of the week in Spanish, and how we use them in sentences.
Use the following information to answer the question below.
(Notice that the days of the week are not capitalized)
They are all masculine.
Days of the week ending in -s do not change form in the plural. Only the article changes.
When used with the days of the week, the definite article has the special meaning “on.”
No trabajo el lunes.
I don’t work on Monday.
No trabajo los martes.
I don’t work on Tuesdays.
Hay una fiesta el miércoles.
There is a party on Wednesday.
Hay muchas fiestas los viernes.
There are many parties on Fridays.
Remember that every day of the week is masculine, therefore, the definite article will be either “el” in singular or “los” in plural.
Now, when we refer to plural “on Mondays”, we respect the word “lunes”, because it does not change in plural. The same happens with the other days that end with “s” as well.
Weekdays remain the same in singular and plural.
Weekends: we add an “s” to be plural.
