French days and months

  • The French months are easy to remember because they all sound similar to their English versions.

    The French days are harder to remember. Samedi has some similarity in sound to Saturday, and lundi is easy to connect to Monday when we remember that moon is the basis of Monday and that lune, being related to the English word lunar, is the root of lundi. All the others just have to be memorized.
