"It is Friday evening."
Translation:Nous sommes vendredi soir.
Hello friends... Along with learning french here with Duolingo, I've just created a weblog in french, to have more fun, while learning it... I would be thankful if anyone support and help me in that. www.mersi.blog.com .... By the way I know "merci" is correct. But anyway I used "mersi" as my weblog name.
It is good practice to read the discussion first, instead of rushing to post a question, otherwise you risk asking redundant questions.
The very first response to the very first question in this thread explained that that is just how the French talk about the current day.
