On Monday.....On Tuesday....

On Monday.....On Tuesday....

When doing an A1 exercise, Kwizbot translates 'On Monday I go snorkelling', and 'on Tuesday Hugo and I rent a jet ski', with "le lundi....." and "le mardi...." . Surely this is inconsistent with the rule given in the notes, where using the definite article imp[lies every Monday, or habitually on Tuesdays ???? I did not use the definite article precisely because I interpret this sentence to mean the events were one time only, with reference to next Monday and next Tuesday??

Bonjour Sally, 

You are right that 'on Mondays' should be translated by 'lundi' and not by 'le lundi' as it means 'on Monday'. I looked at each question from the kwiz and I cannot find the sentences you are referring to. Are they from a specific exercise? If so, could you add the link of the exercise please, so that we can check if there are inconsistencies? 

Bonne journée !
