Unit 4 - Lesson 19 - Days of the week
There are seven days in the week.
We usually work for five of them. We call these five days "the working week".
Many people take two days off work, we call these days "the weekend".
Monday is usually the first day of the week. Friday is usually the last day of the working week. Sunday is considered a day of rest.
