Anyway, the sentences are not meant to be true or anything. I had to translate from Spanish something saying that the horse speaks Spanish.

A very interesting link, thank you. I knew that God had designated the seventh day as the sabbath but I didn't know that the International Organization for Standardization had ruled differently.

It can also be : The week starts with Monday.

Depending on the country you are, the week begins on a different day. In Romania it begins on Monday, in England it begins on Sunday.

If I remember it right, the week begins on Saturday in Egypt. (and I would assume in many other Muslim countries too)

Biblically speaking, If Jesus rose from the dead on the first day of the week (Easter Sunday) , and the Jewish Sabbath is on the last day of the week (Saturday) then countries that are historically Jewish or Christian should start the week on Sunday.

Actually for the Catholic Church (and I guess for Orthodox and Protestant too) the first day of the week is Sunday, but for civil and practical purposes, many countries let the week start with the first working day (Monday).

The week begins with monday is just as good

In the US, we always use Sunday as the first day of the week. Who decided that Sunday is both the weekend and the start of the week? Nu știu.

The Tips and Notes say "on monday" is "lunea".... This is confusing. The sentence translates to "The week stars monday", which is accepted.

I can write monday, is not necessary write Monday

In the UK you should write "Monday" but Duolingo is happy with "monday". :)
