Learn the Catalan days in this first lesson and look at the picture to see why they are important to know!
A few examples using the days (which do not start with a capital in Catalan).
A common theme on this website, because it aims to be practical is that the sentences all use simple but useful grammatical constructions.
In particular, On such and such a day ... is a useful sentence.
|Yesterday was Sunday||Ahir era diumenge|
|Tomorrow is Monday||Demà serà dilluns|
|Today is Tuesday||Avui és dimarts|
|Yesterday was Wednesday||Ahir era dimecres|
|Tomorrow is Saturday||Demà serà dissabte|
|Today is Thursday||Avui és dijous|
|On Sunday, my friends visited my house||Diumenge els meus amics van venir a casa meva|
|On Monday, we went to the cinema||Dilluns vam anar al cinema|
|Last thursday my parents came to visit||Dijous passat els meus pares van venir de visita|
I was in Palma, and I took this picture.
Although not everyone speaks Catalan (and a sizeable minority speak Spanish) the sign is only in Catalan, and there was not an equivalent in Spanish to be seen.
If you happen to have a car, it is quite useful to know what it means.
So, go learn the days of the week, and don't get fined.
This notice is a reminder that Catalan is being spoken all around you. Anyone can forget this as a visitor. It is easy to visit Mallorca, speak in Spanish (or English, German or Polish) and not even realize (or know) that there is another language being lived all around you.
