Days and Months

Activity 1

Victoriano loves to ride his bike! In this video he tells us all about it.

Most of the conversation isn’t relevant to this topic. The important bit is:

Interviewer: ¿Cuándo montas en bici?

Victoriano: Monto en bici los sábados y los domingos.

Which means:

Interviewer: When do you ride your bike?

Victoriano: I ride my bike on Saturdays and Sundays.

So now you can have a go - practise saying the days of the week (Lunes, Martes, Miércoles, Jueves, Viernes, Sábado and Domingo) and then if you’re feeling brave, put them into sentences like Victoriano. Here's the pronunciations to help you:

Now you’re ready for the activity sheet - just print it off and follow the instructions on there. If you don’t have a printer, copy out the crossword onto some paper.

Activity 2

This is Juanmi - he loves playing basketball with his friends. Here he is introducing the months.

Once you’ve watched the video a few times, practise saying and repeating them yourself, in order and then randomly.   

Here’s a list of the months with correct pronunciation so you can check you’re learning it correctly:
