I want to make questions about calendar. I will show the calendar of January and ask those questions in Spanish.

How can I ask these questions in Spanish.

Q1: Today is Jan. 15. What date was last Monday?
Q2: Today is Jan. 15. What date is next Monday?
Q3: How many Mondays are there?
Q4: How man days are there in January?
Q5: What day of week is Jan. 15?
Q6: What date is second Monday?

I translated like this. however, I am not sure it is right.

Q1: Hoy es el 15 de enero. ¿Qué día es el próximo lunes?

Q2: Hoy es el 15 de enero. ¿Qué día fue el lunes pasado?

Q3: ¿Cuántas lunes hay?

Q4: ¿Cuántos días hay en enero?

Q5: ¿Que dia es 15 de enero?

Q6: ¿En qué fecha es el primavera lunes?

Please let me know

    Hi, welcome to the site. It is a little bit difficult to understand what is giving you trouble. Could you please try to translate them into Spanish yourself first? By doing that we won't just give you a "translation service" but will help you understand what you really need. By seeing what gives you trouble we can give you more meaningful answers. – Diego Aug 26 '15 at 18:33

  • Thank you Mark. Great job! I see that fedorqui has already included this in the original question and posted an answer. I hope that it helps. If not don't hesitate to ask for further clarification. – Diego Aug 26 '15 at 23:22

Your translations are almost all OK.

Q1: Today is Jan. 15. What date was last Monday?

Q2: Hoy es el 15 de enero. ¿Qué día fue el lunes pasado?

and

Q2: Today is Jan. 15. What date is next Monday?

Q1: Hoy es el 15 de enero. ¿Qué día es el próximo lunes?

Your translations were correct, but it looks like you swapped them. Notice how I moved them to their proper places.

Q3: How many Mondays are there?

Q3: ¿Cuántas lunes hay?

"Lunes" as a day is masculine, so you have to say "cuántos".

Q4: How many days are there in January?

Q4: ¿Cuántos días hay en enero?

This is fine.

Q5: What day of week is Jan. 15?

Q5: ¿Que dia es 15 de enero?

To make it more complete I would say, "¿Qué día de la semana es el 15 de enero?" or "¿Qué día de semana es el 15 de enero?". Note the diacritics on both "día" and "qué".

Q6: What date is second Monday?

Q6: ¿En qué fecha es el primer lunes?

You seem to be on the right track here but by accident you wrote "primer" instead of "segundo."
