Exercise 1

1. Calendar

The calendar is a system of time representation that divides a year into twelve months and seven-day weeks. Although there are different types of calendars we will focus on the Gregorian calendar.

2. The calendar in English

  • MONTHS

    One of the 12 periods of time the year is divided into. The months in English are as follows:

    JANUARY
    FEBRUARY
    MARCH
    APRIL 
    MAY
    JUNE
    JULY
    AUGUST
    SEPTEMBER
    OCTOBER
    NOVEMBER
    DECEMBER

    Remember that to express a specific date, we use ordinal numbers (1st, 2nd, 3rd).


    My birthday is on 22nd of July.
    Today is 31st of December.
         In oral speech, we introduce the particle the before the number.
    My birthday is on the 22nd of July.
    Today is the 31st of December.
  • DAYS

    Each month is divided into weeks and each week has seven days. The days in English end with the particle -day:

    The first letter of both the months of the year and the days of the week in English is always written in capital letters:
    I have holidays in August.
    I go to pilates every Monday.
  • SEASONS

    Each year has four seasons in which the different months of the year are grouped together, each season usually lasting three months. Each season usually has its particular weather conditions.

    AUTUMN
    From September to November.
    WINTER
    From December to February.
    SPRING
    From March to May.
    SUMMER
    From June to August.
    Unlike the days of the week and the months of the year, the seasons are not writen in capital letters.

Remember!
