Learn English: describing weekend activities

 

In English, we have many ways and prepositions to discuss weekends and what we are doing during them. Please see advice and examples below.

 

Asking questions

What did you do last weekend? (The most recent previous weekend.)

What are you doing this / next weekend?

 

Use the future or present continuous tenses to discuss future weekend activities.

What are you doing over the weekend?

What are you doing during the weekend?

What are you doing at the weekend?

 

Use the past tense to discuss (the most) previous weekends

What did you do over the weekend?

What did you do during the weekend?

What did you do at the weekend?

 

Describing activities

“I can’t come into work today, I was ill all weekend.”

 

“What did you do last weekend?”

“On Saturday we went to the cinema. Sunday just chilled out.” (Relaxed.)

 

(Very British example)

“What are you going to do this weekend?”

“I’m going out Saturday night and I’ll probably be hungover on Sunday.”

 

Have a great weekend, everyone!
