How Many Days Are There In This Month?

Imagine you are talking to a relative, a friend or a colleague. Maybe you are studying Spanish together. Perhaps you are testing each other with some basic questions in Spanish. At some point, the other person says to you something like: "how many days are there in this month?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Cuántos días tiene este mes?

The question is an invitation for you to talk about the number of days in given month. The answer depends on the month in question. You may want to say that:
  • The current month has a given number of days (28/ 29/ 30/ 31);
  • You don't know the number of days in the current month;

Here are some examples of how you could reply:
  • Este mes tiene veintiocho días (this month has 28 days);
  • Este mes tiene veintinueve días (this month has 29 days);
  • Este mes tiene treinta días (this month has 30 days);
  • Este mes tiene treinta y un días (this month has 31 days);
  • No sé cuantos días tiene este mes (I don't know how many days there are in this month);

Now you should practice answering the question:
¿Cuántos días tiene este mes?
