Wednesday – el miércoles
To remember that Wednesday is pronounced meer-co-lehs (miércoles) in Spanish, use the following mnemonic:
Wednesday is the day I get wed, and it's a miracle (miércoles) I ever managed to persuade him to marry me.
NOTE: Mammoth Memory remembers Wednesday as a day you attend a Wedding.
Please also note that days of the week in Spanish do not have capital letters, hence miércoles NOT Miércoles.
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.
