    And just like Wednesday, miércoles is the hardest to spell.

    That was last question

    I really love the fact that "today" is just "hoy" in Spanish while weekend is "el fin de semana".

    I have used and answered this word "miercoles" Twenty or thirty times and have never heard it pronounced like this! Watching some U-Tube vids even Spanish teachers admit that Spanish is the worst for prononciation enunciation etc. I'm a believer.

    Why not el miercoles?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sassfb

    Good question! You can think of the "el" as meaning "on" when it's used with days of the week. So if you say "Tengo una cita el miércoles", it means "I have an appointment on Wednesday".

    This is a helpful page that discusses the days of the week, including when to use the definite article : https://studyspanish.com/grammar/lessons/days

    Why is "isn't" accepted, it's right, isn't it!?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sassfb

    "Isn't" should be accepted. If it is not, it's possible that there is something else wrong with your answer, and we can't tell, because you didn't paste exactly what you wrote here.

    How the Frik do I pronounce miércoles?


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/PrismVelocity

    Exactly how it's spelled: mee-AIR-coal-es. Notice that the accent on that 'e' means you stress it louder and longer than the other syllables.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/irishrasta

    Today isn't Wednesday should be accepted


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/sassfb

    Yes, "isn't" should be accepted. If it is not, it's possible that there is something else wrong with your answer, and we can't tell, because you didn't paste exactly what you wrote here.

    Today is not Wednesday!


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Sadhuseva

    no means "it is not ".... no ? no está means" is not " I dont understand why I am being marked wrong for translating it as " today it is not Wednesday " ???????


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Obscenic

    Anyone know why english short forms of the day are not accepted? "Wed." is always marked as incorrect even though it is correct.


    https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Harley588854

    Wed means something quite different. I am wed to my husband. But wednesday is Wodin's day.
