Learning the Los Meses del Año (Months of the Year) and saying the dates

All the months in español are similar to the months in English and is fairly easy to learn. This guide will make you learn the months easily. Everything is simplified for beginners. The pronunciations will be shown after the months in español. A song of the months will also be included in this guide.

January enero                  e-ner-o

February febrero                fe-brer-o

March marzo                  mar-zo

April abril                     ab-ril

May mayo                   ma-yo

June junio                    ju-ni-o

July julio                     ju-li-o

August agosto                 a-gos-to

September septiembre          sept-ti-em-bre
October octubre                oc-tu-bre

November noviembre            no-vi-em-bre

deciembre            de-ci-em-bre

*All the months in español are lower-cased. Another thing to keep in mind is that the j is always silent in the months. For example, junio and julio would be pronounced as who-ni-o for the month junio and julio would be pronounced as who-li-o.

All the months are somewhat similar to the English months, but the only month that is different than the rest of them are January. January in español is enero. That's the only difference. The rest of the months are similar in English and in español.

Here is a song of the months in español. ENJOY!!

In Spanish the way to write the date is, day-month-year, and in the American way it's month-day-year.

 Example: el 15 de agosto de 2011

Here's a video of a Hispanic student asking another Hispanic student what the date for today is. (Discuple means excuse me).
