ວັນ​ ໃນ​ ອາ​ທິດ,ເດືອນ​ ໃນ ປີ Days of the week, Months of the Year

Hello everyone! ສ​ະ​ບາຍ​ດີ​ທຸ​ກຯ​ຄົນ!

To day we are going to learn about days of the week and months of the year!

Day in Lao is  " Wan" and  Month is Deurn and Year is Pii

But the word order is quite opposite from English.

For example: Monday - Wan Jan- ວັນ​ຈັນ

Here are the days of the week.

Wan Jan​ ວັນ​ຈັນ -Monday
Wan Khan ວັນ​ຄານ - Tuesday
Wan Phoud ວັນ​ພຸດ - Wednesday
Wan Pha Hud ວັນ​ພະ​ຫັດ -Thursday
Wan Souk ວັນ​ສ​ຸ​ກ - Friday
Wan Sao ວັນ​ເສົາ - Saturday
Wan Aar Thid ວັນ​ອາ​ທິດ - Sunday

Let's look at months of the year. There are two way to communicate about months. Easy way if you learn about numbers you can just use number after the word month which is " Deurn " ​ເດືອ​ນ and the other one is just remember each month's names.

I am listing easy way, the formal way,phonetic and Lao written words respectively.

Deurn  Neung ( 1 )-        ( Deurn) Mung Gorn-     ​ເດືອ​ນ​ມັງ​ກອນ         January
Deurn  Song ( 2 )-          ( Deurn) Koum Pa-         ເດືອ​ນກ​ຸ​ມ​ພາ            February
Deurn  Sam ( 3 )-           ( Deurn) Mee Na-            ເດືອ​ນມ​ີ​ນາ               March
Deurn See ( 4 )-              ( Deurn) Me Sa-              ເດືອ​ນເມ​ສາ             April
Deurn  Haa ( 5 )-            ( Deurn) Pird Sa Pa-        ເດືອ​ນພຶດ​ສ​ະ​ພາ       May
Deurn  Hok ( 6 )-            ( Deurn) Mee Thou Na-  ເດືອ​ນມີ​ຖຸ​ນາ            June
Deurn Jed ( 7 )-              ( Deurn) Kor La Kod-     ເດືອ​ນກໍ​ລ​ະ​ກົດ          July
Deurn  Pad ( 8 )-            ( Deurn) Sing Ha-            ເດືອ​ນສິງ​ຫາ             August
Deurn Kao ( 9 )-            ( Deurn) Kan Ya-              ເດືອ​ນກັນ​ຍາ            September
Deurn Sib ( 10 )-            ( Deurn) Tou La-              ເດືອ​ນຕຸ​ລາ               October
Deurn Sib Ed ( 11 )-       ( Deurn) Pa Jik Ka-          ເດືອ​ນພະ​ຈິກ​ກາ       November
Deurn  Sib Song ( 12 )-  ( Deurn) Thun Wa-           ເດືອ​ນທັນ​ວາ            December

In Lao we write Day/ Month/ Year ,which is different from US as well ( Month/Day/Year).

It took me a while to get used to but I still mess up once in a while if I have to date any paper.

Last but not least is to say the year" Pii " For 2015  is  Two Thousand- Fifteen
Pii Song Pun Sib Ha -ປ​ີ​ສອ​ງ​ພັນ​ສິ​ບ​ຫ້າ.

I will do another post more about numbers but if you need to learn from 1-10 here is the post .

Here are some samples on using day/month/ year.

I was born on November 28th 1950 :

ຂ້ອຍ​ເກີດ ​ວັນ​ທີ  28/11/1950 -    Koi Kerd Wan Tee Sao Pad Deurn Sib Ed Pii Neung Pan Khao Hoi Ha Sib.

It is Sunday, January 26th, 2008/  Sunday-26/1/2008

Wan Aar Thid  Tee Sao Hok  Deurn Mung Gone Pii Song Pan Pad

Its 10 in the morning. Sib Mong Sao

Please write it in Lao or phonetic word for this phrase.
