@igwuisman - re: 'Today it is monday' is also correct right?
Hola igwuisman. Here is something to consider. I read somewhere that the word "it" does not exist in Spanish.
If that's the case why bother throwing "it" into the perfect correct English sentence, "Today is Monday."
Personally I'd say it is. There is nothing that you could add to the Spanish sentence to make the "it" correct (bad explanation but I hope you see what I mean), therefore "is" and "it is" are both acceptable English translations. However it may be something along the lines where technically "Today it is Monday" is not grammatically correct in English, although of course in every day life it's totally acceptable to say.
Do I have 2 subjects in "Today I go to the school."? How about seeing Today as an adverb?
That sentence is correct, the subject is "I" (Hoy 'yo' voy a la escuela/Hoy voy al colegio)
Yeah, I typed "It's Monday" and it counted it wrong. It seems like they haven't corrected that yet.
Though it means the same but that's not what the statement says. What you are saying is "Es lunes".
It's allowed to capitalize them, but it's not necessary I've seen capatalized and non-capatalized calendars Same goes for months
Remember that the English 'Monday' once used to be Moon-day, and the moon's Latin roots come through in English in words such as lunar, and also seems to have leaked into the Spanish for the same day of the week :)
Im wondering why It is monday was not accepted... Probably because im wrong but still
Why is "Today it is monday" not correct? Is it because 'today' is the subject of the sentence?
"Es" = "It is" only if "Es" starts a sentence because Spanish doesn't use the "It" for a subject. "Hoy es..." is "Today is..."
Simply because days of the week are not capitalized in Spanish. This was answered a year ago by Si_Robertson. Please see his comment above as well.
Guess what?!! I nearly just put 'toast is Monday!!' how HILARIOUS would THAT have been!!!
Funny how thishe is showing up so late in the duolingo tree. One of the first things I learned in Spanish classes was the date.
