French Level 1|
In this leçon, you are going to learn about les jours de la semaine, ou bien, en anglais, the days of the week.
I will start this leçon with a VERY DIFFICULT QUESTION! Whenever you look at an English language calendar, what is always shown as the first day of the week? If you answered, "Sunday", you are right! Let us try another question. Which day is the last day? If your answer was "Saturday", you are right again! Now you are probably wondering the reason for this quiz? I will tell you. In French, the calendar does not begin and end with the same days as the English calendar. In French, we begin with Monday as our first day and finish with Sunday.
Below are the days of the week shown "en français". Repeat them after me:
Now, how do we ask what day it is?
And how do we answer? Let's suppose it is "Friday" ("Vendredi"). We would say:
Which means, "It's Friday."
(Just in case you have forgotten what the contraction, C'est means in the above response, we will review it together in Leçon 4!)
In our next leçon we will study the months of the year!
