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.
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.
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.
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.
Here you can find a vocabulary we use to ask for a date or what day is it.
|day before yesterday||avant hier|
What day is it? = Quel jour sommes-nous aujourd'hui?
It's thursday 16th April. = Nous sommes le jeudi 16 Avril. / On est le jeudi 16 Avril
What's today's date? = Quelle est la date aujourd'hui?
It's 16th April. = C'est le 16 Avril.
Use of "aujourd'hui" in asking a question is optional.

I’m French, currently living in the Netherlands. I lived in Paris for almost twenty years, and I know very well my country (and of course... my language, French, my mother tongue). I taught French for two years in Spain, conversation class about culture essentially. In Paris, I was Spanish teacher, I have the Agregation degree which is the highest degree for teaching in France, I'm bilingual. I've participated too in several editorial projects about Spanish teaching and DELE preparation. I have a Spanish Studies Master and I'm currently doing a research about the Spanish and Sefardi Judaism. I have a French as foreign language and a Religious Studies Masters too. I enjoy sharing what I know. I’m a very eclectic person and curious about everything. To give you an idea, my interest (and sometimes hobbies) are: philosophy, spirituality and religions in general, meditation, psychology and psychoanalysis, history, geography, literature, writing (in particular creative writing, and I’m used to write everyday), art (painting, photography), sciences (vulgarisation level) and cultural matters in general. I travel a lot (as a backpacker), sometimes by foot, and the places I know well are France, the Netherlands, Italy and Serbia. One of my qualities is my capacity of adaptation, I enjoy preparing documents to help the student to acquire autonomy, but I love speaking too, and it’s the best way to learn a language. I'm waiting for your message, please when contact me, explain quickly who you are, why you want to study French and what you are looking for exactly. See you soon. Read more
