What are the days of the week?

Dear Friend,

Are you happy today? I'm sure you are because I'd like you to take a look at our new email English lesson which is about the days of the weeks and the months of the year. Yes, in our previous session we already heard Sue speak about her favourite month and Sunny has created a forum lesson that shows you how to talk about dates and calendars. Based on my experiences, many English learners have trouble distinguishing between "Tuesday" and "Thursday" because these two words look quite similar. However, both days are pronounced quite differently so here is a little trick that might help you: The word "Thursday" rhymes with "birthday". You probably know how to pronounce the word "birthday"? So, if you say "birthday", it sounds a bit like "Thursday". In addition to the days of the week, you also need to learn the months of the year. That's why Sue Darville has recorded this MP3 file for you. So what is the American word for "autumn" what do we call the day when people play practical jokes on each other? If you are not sure, you might want to read Have you been gulped?

Friend, our test of the day is called "We went on holiday" and it contains 10 questions covering a number of grammar and vocabulary topics such as prepositions and simple present. Let's see how many questions you get right: English test. One of our students, Anna from Indonesia, wanted to know the difference between the adjectives 'dumb' and 'stupid'. Well, she asked her question here and as you can see, Alan answered it right away. Maybe you have a question too? If so, simply post it on the forum and start communicating with us.

That's it, Friend. I hope to see you on the forum soon.
