Days of the Week in Chinese

Posted by iChinese Learning on May 04, 2016

In Chinese, week is called “星期 xīnɡqī”. To say different days of the week, you simply put the numbers after it. E.g. “星期一 xīnɡqī yī”, literally “week one” means “Monday”. “星期二 xīnɡqī èr”, literally “week two” means “Tuesday”…

To this extent, learning mandarin Chinese is actually not that difficult! Now let's learn more:

Days of the Week

星期 Thursday  

 

xīnɡqī wǔ

星期 Friday

Sunday is the 7th and last day of the week. But instead of saying “星期七(week seven)”, we say:

xīnɡqī tiān

星期 Sunday

or

xīnɡqī rì

星期 Sunday     

 

In spoken Chinese, “星期” is often replaced by “礼拜 lǐ bài”.
