DAYS OF THE WEEK

This is a very simple English lesson about the days of the week.

There are, of course, seven days in one week.

Depending who you talk to, the first day of the week is either Sunday or Monday.

For sure, Saturday and Sunday is the week-end and it’s time to chill out with family or friends.

Without doubt, nobody likes Mondays.

The days of the week were named by the Romans.

Just like the months and the years.

Not quite sure though why there are only seven days.

I must pay another visit to Google to look it up.

Anyway, whatever!

Let’s recall then the seven days of the week.

It’s fun if we use another word alongside the day to compliment it and that word begins with the same letter.

Did you know it was called a Tautogram?

I bet you didn’t.  Anyway, never mind.

Here we go!

The first day of the week is                            Magical Monday

That’s followed by                                          Terrific Tuesday

Then comes                                                     Wonderful Wednesday

Four days in and it’s                                       Thankful Thursday

Weekend is also upon us.                                Fantastic Friday

Weekend is here.  Yippee!                              Super Saturday

Family day.  Lazy day.  Catch up.                  Special Sunday

 

We can, of course, expand those descriptions.  Let’s try:

Magical, Magnificent, Memorable Monday

Terrific, Tremendous, Tantalizing Tuesday

Wet, Windy, Wonderful Wednesday

Thankful, Thoughtful, Thirsty Thursday

Fantastic, flexible, Funny Friday

Super, Silly, Sensational Saturday

Special, Sunny, Scintillating Sunday

There you have it, the days of the week in a nutshell.

Always be careful in the pronunciation of Tuesday and Thursday.

Notice the choice of the words to compliment Thursday all begin and emphasize the pronunciation of ‘Th’.

Good luck with your learning of English.

I hope you enjoyed this little lesson.

REMEMBER!

Keep practicing to speak your sentences aloud.
