In this video, we’ll be talking about: los meses. After going over those, we’ll learn how to tell dates. You might want to review the videos on numbers beforehand. Numbers 1-31 will be the most helpful.
Please feel free to leave any questions, comments, or suggestions! Gracias.
enero – January
febrero – February
marzo – March
abril – April
mayo – May
junio – June
julio – July
agosto – August
septiembre – September
octubre – October
noviembre – November
diciembre – December
¿Cuál es la fecha de hoy? – What is the date today?
Hoy es el # de mes. – Today is the # of month.
primero – first
¿Cuándo es tu cumpleaños? – When is your birthday?
Mi cumpleaños es el # de mes. – My birthday is the # of month.
el día de la Independencia – Independence Day
la Navidad – Christmas
el día de San Valentín – Valentine’s Day
el día de los espíritus – Halloween
Es la primer vez que escucho que existe el “dÃa de los espÃritus”. Â¿Quiere Ud. decir el dÃa de los muertos? Â¿?
Es una traducciÃ³n posible para el ‘Halloween’. ‘El dÃa de los muertos’ es una tradiciÃ³n bastante diferente. Una tiene que ver con los dulces y disfrazarse mientras que otra se trata de recordar a los familiares y seres queridos fallecidos.
Hola Senor Jordan,
I really enjoy your lessons. I recently took a break from the classes I’m taking at a local adult language school. Anyway, upon returning to the I realized how much I forgot. Thanks for the extra help I need it! And my birthday is also on Dec. 14th! Very cool!
I don’t understand one thing. Why the question about Independence day starts from “Cual” when other questions starts from “Cuando”?
Hope for quick answer, cause I’m confused 🙂
Â¿CuÃ¡l? â€” means what or whichâ€¦
I think I often use it in with the word â€˜fechaâ€™â€¦ Â¿CuÃ¡l es la fecha de hoy?â€˜ meaning â€˜what is the date [of] today?
Cuando would be a strange word to use there.. â€˜when is the date today?â€¦..
On the rest of themâ€¦ I usually ask â€˜when?â€™ and I donâ€™t have the word â€˜fechaâ€˜â€¦
I think that on that question you could ask ‘Â¿cuÃ¡ndo es el dÃa de la independencia?‘ and it would make sense…
You would be asking ‘when is independence day?’
With cuÃ¡l, you’re asking which of all the days in the year is independence day.
Either one makes sense.
Hope that clarifies!
!!Cuidado!! Para las fechas, es posible (y frecuente) decir : “Hoy es el uno de…” No es obligatorio decir: “Hoy es el primero de…”
So you ask “Â¿CuÃ¡l es la fecha de hoy?â€˜, you use “la”.
and â€˜Â¿cuÃ¡ndo es el dÃa de la independencia?â€˜, you use “el”.
When you actually pronounce “es”, do you just mixed it after pronounce the first word? like “CuÃ¡l es”, in the back, you pronounce “les”, “cuÃ¡ndo es”, you pronounce “does”.
for english speakers:
ok so these days people are saying that just listening to the language will help you learn the language. Personally i thinks that would be much easier than all the dumb stuff they have us do in school!! I was just wondering how did you learn spanish to speak spanish??
para los hispanohablantes:
bien por lo que estos dÃas la gente estÃ¡ diciendo que acaba de escuchar el lenguaje le ayudarÃ¡ a aprender el idioma. Personalmente piensa que serÃa mucho mÃ¡s fÃ¡cil que todas las cosas tontas que nos tienen en la escuela! Me preguntaba Â¿cÃ³mo aprendiste a hablar espaÃ±ol espaÃ±ol?
Thank you so much. I am taking homeschool spanish 1 classes . This was very helpful and I learned the months very quick and very easily.
Thanks for all you do! ~Allie
What Spanish do you teach? The Spanish they use in Spain, or the Spanish used here in America? I’m new to this, so just wondering.

I don’t understand the greetings I’ve watched the video so many times and I am so confused help please
Your videos are awesome and a big help for learning spanish!
I’ve started taking home school Spanish 1 classes and these videos have been super helpful! I basicly learned the months the first time I watched the video. Thank you!
Thanks a lot!! 🙂
Loved your video on the months. Thank you. But it had one mistake. At the end you were talking about halloween but it said valentines day. Tripped me up so just wanted to point that out. Thank you for making this video
These are awesome video’s! At the 4:32 mark, you’ll see that the question says “Valentine’s day” when I believe it means “Halloween,” to match the “October 31st” thing. Other then that, I don’t have any questions. Thank you!
