Tuesday – el martes
To remember that Tuesday is pronounced mar-tehs (martes) in Spanish, use the following mnemonic:
Tuesday is a great day to chew (Tue) all day on the different varieties of food down at the mart (martes).
(If you didn't know that mart is another name for market - you do now!)
NOTE: Mammoth Memory remembers Tuesday as a day when you chew all day.
Please also note that days of the week in Spanish do not have capital letters, hence martes NOT Martes.
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.
