Hello, there! Today we will study the Months of the Year in Spanish. Take a look at this post and then book your trial class to start learning Spanish! Let’s get started!
What are the Spanish Months in order?
Let’s start by naming the 12 months of the year in Spanish. Here there are:
Notice that the spelling is very similar to English in most cases. You just need to adjust a few letters and the pronunciation of the letter “J”. So, let’s review the Months of the Year in order: enero, febrero, marzo, abril, mayo, junio, julio, agosto, septiembre, octubre, noviembre, diciembre. You can see that from enero to agosto, the word ends with “o”, and from septiembre to diciembre the word ends with “e”. This can be useful in order to remember the order.
The word “mes” (Month) is a masculine word, that’s why if you need to refer to a month, for example in a sentence like “Este febrero ha sido muy caluroso” (This February has been very hot), you need to choose the masculine gender in the adjectives that modifies the noun (Este and caluroso).
In Spanish, we don’t write capital letters at the beginning of the month (or days). Anyway, you can see them written with capital letters at some places or text. Is not wrong, but it is just not necessary. This also happens with the seasons!
Another thing that it’s useful to be aware of, is that to write a date, the order is different than in English, for example, to May 28th, you have to write: 28 de mayo.
Okay, that was all for today. Remember that you can book your free trial class and start today your journey into the Spanish language! See you in the next post!
