    일요일에 교회에 가요.
    I go to church on Sunday.

  • Rima Maram

    i am wondering if i should memorise the meaning of the days ??? are they chinese characters so they don’t use them or what ??

    • Sneaky15

      I think it would just be easier to remember the days of the week if you memorize the meanings. Not sure, but nobody else replied, so I felt like I should try.

  • Sneaky15

    There is a typo in the pdf! It says Saturady. Just letting you know. Lol

  • Chithra Murthy

    She said, I work from Monday to Sunday evening
    워요일부더 일요일 저녀 까지 일해요
    AAHHHH!!! 감사합니다! I didn’t even listen to it twice to understand what she was saying! I understood the first time itself!!!

    • li

      Omg, I’m so happy for you!!

  • li

    Omg, wait. The days of the week in Spanish is also the exact same way you say the days of the week in Tagalog/Filipino language. Lunes, Martes, Miyerkules, Huwebes, Biyernes, Sabado, Linggo.

    목요일하고 금요일 제일 좋아해요.
    Thursdays and Fridays are my favorite. (Because they’re my days off on work, haha.)

    • Nichole Marcela Rojas Chaverra

      Filipino has a lot of spanish language influences …. and yeap: Lunes, Martes, Miércoles, Jueves, Viernes, Sábado, Domingo 🙂 …

  • Brandon Cw

    일요일 편하게하다 좋아해요.

    • James

      I like being comfortable on a Sunday?

    • Brandon Cw

      “Relax” 말하고싶어요. 어떡해 말해요?

  • Nichole Marcela Rojas Chaverra

    Planets and days of the week in japanese are really similar, and understanding japanese Kanji and their chinese lecture gives sense to many of those related words in korean!!! But I have a question: why do you use 이 in 금요일이었어요 in this sentence? 어제는 진짜 신나는 금요일이었어요 could it be just thus: 금요일었어요 ? Gracias!

    • Ivis Benavides

      It is 금요일이었어요 because the sentence is in the past tense. If you break it apart it is 금요일 + 이다 and the conjugation of 이다 in the past tense is either 이었어요 or 였어요. 이었어요 is used here because 금요일 ends in a consonant.
