Introduction to ¿Cuál es la fecha?

¿Cuál es la fecha?  What is the date?*

In this section, you’ll learn how to tell the date in Spanish. It’s a good thing to know, since otherwise you’re likely to miss flights, appointments, and, yes, dates.**

Before we get to calendar dates, though, we need to learn a few other useful words: seasons, months, and days. And, of course, you’ll need to refresh your memory of the numbers from one to thirty-one. If you’re shaky on those, you might want to go back and review.

* As you learned in the last section, we might want to think of ¿Cuál es la fecha? as : “Of the many dates out there, which one is this?”
** If you ask someone out on a fecha, however, they won’t know what you’re talking about. For that, try una cita…and  ¡Buena Suerte!


After this section, you will be able to…

Use months, days, seasons, and dates to describe when something takes place
