The difference between:
Pierre prend le train vendredi = Pierre is taking the train on Friday
(meaning this Friday)
Pierre prend le train le vendredi = Pierre takes the train on Fridays (meaning every Friday).
We use le + day of the week for something you do regularly on that day.
Hope this helps!
in French, the article in front of a weekday signifies that this happens all days, not just the one.
Samedi je joue aux cartes. -- Saturday I play cards.
Le samedi je joue aux cartes. -- SaturdayS I play cards.
-- Chris (not a native speaker).
Hello! Would that be correct? (meaning every Friday)
Pierre prend le train les vendredis.
You would have to add 'tous' -
Pierre prend le train tous les vendredis.
Pierre prend le train le vendredi.
meaning the same thing.
