"See you on Monday."
Translation:Vejo você na segunda-feira.
The fair or market must have been important in the old days. 1st day of the fair, second day of the fair.... It is amazing that the fair would open on Sunday. I was looking for the origin of the use of the word and how it came to be used as a suffix for the days of the week. I thought maybe it had a different meaning. http://dictionnaire.reverso.net/portugais-anglais/feira
There used to be holidays called feira prima, segunda feira, etc..the roman emperor constantine then decided to name the days of the week after the holidays..then he mixed the roman day names with christian names so sunday became the lords day instead of feira prima (now called domingo), and then the week carried on in the same way segunda feira, terça feira...untill saturday which was named after the sabbath and so now we have sábado...so the week started on sunday and ended saturday which is why monday is the second day.
Monday = "Segunda-feira" or "Segunda" Tuesday = "Terça-feira" or "Terça". Wedsnesday = "Quarta-feira" or "quarta". Thursday = "Quinta-feira" or "Quinta". Friday = "Sexta-feira" or "Sexta" Saturday = we speak only "Sábado" Sunday = We speak only "Domingo"
Speaking in slang that is, informal words is: Saturday = "Sabadão" Sunday = "Domingão".

There are different grammatical reasons to attribute a "Pronome Oblíquo Átono" (me, te, se, o, a, lhe, nos, vos, os, as, lhes...) to a verb and it usually happens exactly like when you do it in English.
In this sentence, "you" doesn't act like a simple pronoun, but as a direct object pronoun:
I see you = Eu te vejo
You see me = Você me vê

I wrote "vemos na segunda-feira" and I got it wrong because it should be "NOS vemos na segunda-feira'. I understand that maybe they preferred me to write something with" você" or "te" but since "nos vemos" was accepted, shouldn't just "vemos" also be? I'm not sure how you say in Brazil, but I would guess, in a phrase like that, you emit the pronoun?
I am sorry, but at the top of the page you will see that this is "Vejo você na segunda-feira." This is not "nos", but it is "I", for this subject. "(I'll) see you on Mondays." We generally put this in future tense or skip the subject. "você" or "te" is the direct object and not the subject.
"Nos vemos na segunda-feira." is probably commonly said, and it would literally mean "We'll see each other on Mondays.", but in English we would more commonly say "See you on Monday." In Spanish, "nos" is the object also which stands for "ourselves" or more commonly "each other". If you put the subject, it would be "Nós nos vemos na segunda-feira."
I understand that "See you soon." in Brazil is "Até logo."
In "I see you..." ( I'll see you...), the word "you" is the direct object. In English we change "he", a Nominative form to use as subject, to "him " to use as an object. In Portuguese even "you" changes form from "tu" to "te" and "vós" becomes "vos". I have a question to Paulenrique whether there is another form for "você" or if it stays the same.
It must be "na segunda-feira". As for the object pronouns, maybe you will understand more than I did: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_personal_pronouns#Possessive_pronouns_and_adjectives
"Te" is the object form of "tu" which is a familiar singular form of "you" used with family, friends and minors; however in Brazil "você" is used even in place of "tu" even though in Portugal "você is for a person a bit less close yet a social equal and "vocês, plural "you", for people of the same social standing. There is a third form "o senhor, a senhora" for showing respect for someone above you socially. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portuguese_personal_pronouns#Possessive_pronouns_and_adjectives
