In Spanish, they use "el" with days for "on."

So "el martes" would be "on Tuesday," and "los martes" would be "on Tuesdays" (i.e. every Tuesday).

for days, use "el" for items physically on other things, us "en" (or "sobre")

"en" is incorrect in this sentence. If you want to think about a word-for-word-translation, the "el" is "on" when speaking of days.

Why is the translation “el martes?” I thought “el” without an accent is the.
