Today, Let’s learn the days of the week

Los días de la semana

Starting with some preliminary vocabulary…Time references
día – day
semana – week
mes – month
año – year

Let’s call this a Vocabulary Pocket = a group of related words, that if you learn together, in a chunk, you can memorize them all for the brain power price of memorizing just one!

We can expand the above Vocabulary Pocket with ease:

hora – hour
década – decade
siglo – century

los días de la semana

los meses del año
las horas del día

Hay 60 minutos en una hora.
Hay 7 días en una semana.
Hay 12 meses en un año.
Hay 100 años en un siglo.

lunes – Monday
martes – Tuesday
miércoles – Wednesday
jueves – Thursday
viernes – Friday
sábado -Saturday
domingo – Sunday
