GRAMMAR:

The days of the week, and related words are used diffeently between Spanish and English. Notice first of all that they are not capitalized in Spanish. In English we use the preposition "on" with the days of the week, but Spanish speakers use the definite article "the." For example, "Siempre estoy en casa los martes." (I am always home on Tuesdays.) Note, also, that with the ver SER, there is no article when using the days of the week, e.g., "Hoy es miércoles." (Today is Wednesday.)

 

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

 

Examples:

 

Hoy es lunes. Today is Monday.
  Mañana es viernes. Tomorrow is Friday.
  Carlos está en Austin los lunes. Carlos is in Austin on Mondays.
