    The French word PREMIER means "first" in English.

    Now I want to show you how to add days of the week to your conversation about the date.

    Let's suppose that today the date is Monday, July 10th en français! How would we say it?

    C'est lundi, le dix juillet!

    That's it! Easy, huh?

    One last thing, with numbers that are followed by a word that begins with a consonant (like juillet) we don't say the last letter of the number. That is why the above statement is pronounced, Say luhdee, luh dee jweeyay instead of Say luhdee, luh deece jweeyay! What if the word following the number starts with a vowel, like, oh, avril par exemple (for example). We say the last sound of the number word!

    Let's move onto the next leçon!
