In this Spanish lesson we will learn the days of the week in Spanish and how to say things you “don’t do” on certain days of the week using the Spanish present tense. It is important to learn basic, fundamental skills such as how to tell the time in Spanish, how to count in Spanish, how to pronounce the Spanish alphabet and how to state days of the week and months of the year in Spanish. In the next lesson we will look at months of the year and we have already seen how to tell the time and the Spanish numbers. It is always advisable to go back and review lessons as, for sure, you will have missed a few details the first time around and the more times you review a topic the better you will remember it. Try never, however, to review things so much that you get bored or stale. It is vital to keep motivated and interested and to keep the ball rolling forwards with your Spanish studies.
