Friday – el viernes
To remember that Friday is pronounced bier-nehs (viernes) in Spanish, use the following mnemonic:
Friday is the day work finishes and we go straight down to the bar - beer's nice (viernes) there.
NOTE: Mammoth Memory remembers Friday as the last day of work for the week.
Please also note that days of the week in Spanish do not have capital letters, hence viernes NOT Viernes.
All days of the week are masculine, so it’s el lunes, el martes, el miércoles, el jueves, el viernes, el sábado and el domingo. Imagine seven different elephants – one for each day of the week.
NOTE: You will rarely need to put “el” or “un” before a day of the week, but it’s useful to know for those odd times when you do.
