Months and days of the week in French
Until now you have learnt about numbers and how to ask for the time. Perfect! Now it´s time for the days of the week, months and seasons. After this lesson you will be able to have a conversation about this topic.
Days of the week in French
In French we translate "day" as " le jour" or "la journée", while "week" is translated with "la semaine." You need to pay attention using articles before days of the week. If there is an article before the day, it means "every" for example "Every sunday I go to the park." = "Le dimanche je vais au parc."
Every Monday I am going to the gym. = Le lundi je vais à la salle du sport.
Next Wednesday there will be a concert in the city center. = Mercredi prochain il y aura un concert dans le centre-ville.
Months of the year and their pronunciation in French
The months of the year in French are translated as "Les mois de l'année", to express that the action is happening in a particular month, we use the preposition "en."
In April I will go to Croatia. = En avril jˈirai en Croatie.
In August Ivana will return in Spain. = En août Ivana reviendra en Espagne.
Unlike in English, in French the months are written in lowercase letters.
How to describe the four seasons in French?
The word "season" we translate in French as "saison". For reffering to a specific month you can use the preposition à + article or the preposition en.
Seasons in English
Les saisons en français
En été tu profites du soleil. = In summer you enjoy the sun.
Au printemps les arbres sˈétoffent et fleurissent. = In spring the trees grow and flourish.
L'hiver commence en décembre et se termine en mars. = Winter begins in December and ends in March.
Names of the seasons are always written with lowercase letters.
How to ask the date or what day is it in French?
Here you can find a vocabulary we use to ask for a date or what day is it.
|day before yesterday||avant hier|
- Quel + jour + être (2nd person plural) + aujourd'hui?
- Quel + jour + être + on (3rd person singular)?
