Saying Friday in Spanish is easy! The most common way to say it is “viernes.” This word comes from the latin root “vigilia,” which means watch or vigil. You can also use other forms such as “fin de semana” (weekend) and “el dia de viernes” (Friday’s day).
When you want to talk about a specific date on a Friday, you can use the phrase, “en el viernes” meaning “on Friday.” For example, if someone asks what your plans are for this weekend, you could respond with: “En el viernes voy a ir al cine con mis amigos.” (“On Friday I’m going to go to the movies with my friends.”)
You may hear people shorten the word when speaking informally—they might refer to it as simply “vie.” To make things even easier, some Latin American countries have their own slang terms for saying ‘Friday’—for example, in Mexico they often call it ‘cuates.’ If you need help remembering how to say ‘Friday’ in Spanish just think of these helpful tips: v-i-e-r-n-e-s!
