Do we say AT the weekover or ON the weekend?

What is the difference?

AT the weekover is used in British English

ON the weekkết thúc 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 lớn always go khổng lồ the beach AT the weekkết thúc. – British EnglishWe used to lớn always go khổng lồ the beach ON the weekend. – American English

Note: We do NOT say in the weekend.

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

Last weekend – Next weekend

We vị not use prepositions before LAST or NEXT.

Both last and next can be replaced by at the/on the & retain the same meaning.

We also vì not use prepositions before each, every, this, that + weekend.

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 nước Australia, I went lớn the beach every weekend.

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

Over the weekover / During the weekend

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

In general: over the weekover = 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 weekend. It is not necessarily on both days.

A long weekend

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

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

Weekover or Weekends?

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