Do we say AT the weekend or ON the weekend?

What is the difference?

AT the weekend is used in British English

ON the weekend is used in American English

I play football AT the weekover. – British EnglishI play football ON the weekkết thúc. – American English

Both prepositions can be used in this sentence. It depends on where you are speaking or using English.

We used to lớn always go to lớn the beach AT the weekkết thúc. – British EnglishWe used to lớn always go lớn the beach ON the weekover. – American English

Note: We vị NOT say in the weekover.

On Fridays after work or school, you may hear people say “Finally, it’s the weekend!” even though it is not Saturday yet.

Last weekover – Next weekend

We bởi vì not use prepositions before LAST or NEXT.

Every weekend

We don’t say all the weekends, we say every weekend.

I’m very active. I play football every weekend.When I was lived in Australia, I went to lớn the beach every weekend.

Remember, after EVERY we have a singular noun (= every + singular noun) so we don’t say every weekends (incorrect)

Over the weekkết thúc / During the weekend

Sometimes you will hear people say over the weekend or during the weekend

In general: over the weekend = during the weekend = at/on the weekend

It can refer to the entire duration of the weekend

Or it can refer to lớn something that happens at a single point but at some time within the duration of the weekover. It is not necessarily on both days.

She said she would Điện thoại tư vấn me over the weekend.I’ll fix it over the weekend. = At some point during the course of the weekover.

A long weekend

A long weekover is a weekkết thúc that has at least three days due khổng lồ a public holiday falling on either the Friday or Monday.

Friday is a public holiday so the Friday, Saturday & Sunday is a long weekkết thúc.

Weekover or Weekends?

Weekend is mostly used in singular size. However it can be used in its plural khung (weekends) when we are referring khổng lồ a number of different weekends over a period of time.

We went to the beach at/on the weekover. ( = only one weekkết thúc, the one that just went by)We spent many weekends at the beach. ( = numerous weekends in the past)

One final thing, we don’t write weekend with a hyphen in the middle.
