Understanding the Days of the Week in English: Effective Exercise and Answers
Learning English is always exciting and interesting. One of the important parts of learning a language is learning the order of the days of the week. Today we offer you an interesting exercise that will help test your understanding of the days of the week in English.
To better remember the sequence of days of the week, use mnemonics and associations. Think of interesting facts and characteristics that correspond to each day and match them with the corresponding names of the days of the week. Example:
- Monday: The start of the workweek. You can associate “M” for “Monday” with “Money,” inspiring you to begin work to earn money.
- Tuesday: “T” for “Tuesday” and “Two.” Tuesday has “t” and “u,” which resemble the number “two.”
- Wednesday: The day that divides the week. “W” for “Wednesday” and “Week” can be associated with the concept of dividing the week.
- Thursday: Associate it with “Thor,” the god of thunder and lightning. “Th” for “Thursday” can remind you of “Thor.”
- Friday: The start of the weekend. “F” for “Friday” and “Free” can suggest the idea of a free day.
- Saturday: “S” for “Saturday,” and both “Saturday” and “S” start with the same letter.
- Sunday: The day of the sun. “S” for “Sunday” and the association with the word “Sun.”
These associations can help you remember the days of the week in English more easily.
