Days, months, adverbs of frequency, and leisure activities in Spanish

1. First let’s see if you know these leisure activities in Spanish:

Cocinar
Viajar
Ir de compras
Ver la televisión
Leer el periódico
Ir al monte
Ir de excursión
Ir a la playa
Leer un libro
Ir al cine

2. Now translate these leisure activities verbs from English to Spanish:

To go to a concert
To listen to music
To go out with friends
To play football
To read the newspaper
To travel
To go on an excursion
To go to the beach
To watch TV
To read a book

3. Let´s practice now how often we do certain leisure activities using Spanish adverbs of frequency. What do the following sentences mean?:

En mi casa yo siempre cocino.
Vemos la televisión todos los días.
¿Vas al cine a menudo?
Ana y David van de compras dos veces al mes.
Escucho música todos los días.

4. Next, let´s see if you know the days of the week in Spanish. I will say them in a random order and I would like you to say them in English:

Miércoles
Sábado
Martes
Lunes
Viernes
Domingo
Jueves

5. Now say all the days of the week in order in Spanish:

6. Next, translate the following sentences from English to Spanish:

On Tuesdays Ana reads the newspaper.
On Fridays we go out with friends.
On Monday I am going to the cinema.
On Thursdays Pedro and Miguel play football.
On Saturday we are going to a concert.

7. Finally, let´s practice the months of the year in Spanish. First try to recognize these months in Spanish:

Abril
Septiembre
Agosto
Enero
Marzo
Diciembre

8. Now, translate the following months of the year from English to Spanish:

May
February
July
November
June
October

This is all the Spanish practice for today.

There are quite a lot of words to remember in this lesson. I recommend you watch the original theory video lesson various times in order to memorise them well. Then you can try to write how often you do various leisure activities, on which days of the week, and how often other people you know do them.

See you next time with more Spanish practice.
