I had these two sentences in a work book and one of them doesn't use le in front of the day of the week, why is that?
Vas- tu au cinema dimanche?
Are you going to the movies on Sunday?
il va à la bibliothéque le samedi
He goes to the library on Saturday.
You use the day of the week without an article if you are talking about a one-time event.
Are you going to the library Sunday? means only this Sunday.
= Tu vas à la bibliothèque dimanche?
For something that is repeated each week on a certain day, use the article before the day.
My grand-daughter goes to chemistry lab on Thursday. (every Thursday.) =
Ma petite-fille va au laboratoire de chimie le jeudi.
Thank you I understand now
