Day 2

21 August 2018

If you want to organize a meeting in Mandarin , Chinese days of the week is the useful thing for you to know.

In Chinese we use “week” + number 1-6 to express Monday to Saturday .“week” in Mandarin is “xīng qī (星期)” , “xīng(星)”meaning star ,“qī(期)”meaning time period here, then we have ,

xīng qī yī —Monday
week one ( literally)
星期一

xīng qī èr — Tuesday
week two (literally)
星期二

xīng qī sān —Wednesday
星期三

xīng qī sì—Thursday
星期四

xīng qī wǔ—Friday
星期五

xīng qī liù —Saturday
星期六

However Sunday is not “week seven”in Chinese. We call it “week sun ”, the sun’s day . It pronounces as

xīng qī rì —Sunday
星期日

But beginners might feel “rì” is hard to pronounce , no worries, you can use another one ,

xīng qī tiān —Sunday
星期天

(literally meaning “week day”)

Ok, what day is it today ?

Now you can confidently to say “xīng qī wǔ ”!
