Troubles with some words

Hi ChinesePod team, my question is this:
What’s the difference between:

周一 and 星期一

As far as I know, those expressions mean “Monday”.

But I don’t really understand where should I use them or what are the main differences between them.

Thank’s a lot!


That’s a good question! You’re right, 周一 and 星期一 both mean “Monday” and they can be used interchangeably. However, 星期 is more commonly used and more colloquial, while 周 is more formal. But that’s their only difference.
Hope this helps!
