Hi! For this French Connection, I’ll be discussing how to say the names of each day of the week and month of the year. I’ll also explain how to write and say the current year in the french language.
Days of the Week
The word for ‘week’ in the French language is semain. The word for ‘day’ in the French language is jour. There are sept days in the week, and cinquante-deux weeks in a year. Overall, there are trois cents soixante-cinq days in a year. Here is how to say each day of the week:
To say ‘On Friday’, you would say le vendredi.
Months of the Year
There are douze months in a year, so here is how to say each one:
January- Janvier February- Fevrier March- Mars April- Avril
May- Mai June- Juin July- Juillet August- Août September- Septembre
October- Octobre November- Novembre December- Decembre
To say ‘In October’, you would write en Octobre.
2016 in French
The word for year in French is an. For example, Je suis treize ans. The word for 100 years is siècle. The word for 1000 years is mille. Therefore, we would write two thousand years as deux mille. As we know, 16 in French is seize. Based off of this knowledge, you would write the current year, 2016, as this:
deux mille seize
Thanks so much for reading!
