Monday – el lunes
To remember that Monday is pronounced loo-nehs (lunes) in Spanish, use the following mnemonic:
On Monday mornings, this is how we all turn up for work, dressed as "loonies" (lunes).
NOTE: Mammoth Memory remembers Monday as the first day of work for the week.
Please also note that days of the week in Spanish do not have capital letters, hence lunes NOT Lunes.
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.
