Many newcomers to the Spanish language start with some basic terms like greetings and the days of the week. The biggest challenge with the days of the week may be how to pronounce them.
Sunday is "domingo," which is pronounced as it is written.
Monday, is "lunes" which is pronounced as LOO-nays.
The third day of the week, Tuesday, is "martes" or MAR-tays.
The fourth day of the week, Wednesday, is "miercoles" which is pronounced me-AIR-ko-lays.
The fifth day of the week, Thursday, is "jueves," which is pronounced WAY-beys. The "j" is pronounced as an "h" and the "v" sounds a lot like a "b."
The sixth day of the week, Friday, is "viernes" which is pronounced bee-AIR-nays.
The seventh day of the week, Saturday, is "sábado," which is also the word for sabbath. There is an accent on the first syllable. Say SA-ba-doh.
