Thursday 28th Of April 2016


Imagine that today, a relative, a friend or a work colleague asks you: "what is today's date?"

In Spanish, the other person could say:
¿Qué día es hoy?

Hoy es:

The question is an invitation for you to say today's date.

A quick look at your diary confirms that today is: Thursday the 28th of April 2016. You could give today's date in Spanish by saying:

Hoy es jueves veintiocho de abril de dos mil dieciséis

  1. Today is = Hoy es
  2. Thursday = jueves
  3. The 28th = veintiocho
  4. Of April = de abril
  5. 2016 = de dos mil dieciséis
  6. In Spanish, we just say "28", instead of "the 28th"
  7. In Spanish we literally say: "of 2016"
  8. In Spanish we don't capitalise day of the week names, for example: jueves
  9. In Spanish we don't capitalise month names, for example: abril
