French Days of the WeekIn this lesson you will learn how to say the days of the week (les jours de la semaine) in French. They are very simple and quite straightforward and the pronunciation is not very difficult.

Please note that there is a big difference between English and French when it comes to the days of the week.

In English we always capitalize the days for example Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday etc. In French, however, you never capitalize the days of the week except when one of them is at the beginning of a sentence.
