Lesson of the Week: Spanish Days, Months & Seasons - Días, Meses, y Estaciones

One interesting change in Spanish is that their week begins with lunes or Monday, not Sunday. They also do not capitalize months or days of the week. Another difference is that when referring to a day of the week, it is common to use the words for "the", or articles. This article changes based on whether the day is masculine or feminine, and becomes plural when referring to "every" or "all."

For example: "ella va a trabajar el sábado" = she is going to work Saturday or "yo voy al gimnasio todos los lunes" = I go to the gym every Monday.

Travel Spot of the Week

visit Arequipa and practice your Spanish!

Arequipa, Peru

High in the mountains of Southern Peru (and through some awfully windy and downright scary roads!) lies Arequipa, famous for the Convent of Santa Catalina. The nuns there were cut off from the world for over 400 years, only opening their doors to the public in 1970. For a nice picture gallery, click here. For a satellite picture of Arequipa and Mt. Misti, click here. For some history and more pictures of Arequipa, click here.
