"what do you plan to do on the weekend" was rejected but I think it's ok

I think so too except it doesn't have the "you all," only a "you"

what are you planning to do over the weekend?

"what do you plan on doing for the weekend" should be correct

"On the weekend" sounds very strange to me (American English native speaker). I'd say "during the weekend".

Or I'd say "this weekend"

I tried "what do you have planned for the weekend ?" but duo didn't like that. I still think it should be acceptable.

In British English the answer 'What are you planning to do on the weekend?' is actually WRONG. You only use on for individual days - so you would say on Saturday or on Sunday but you would always say 'AT the weekend'.

"What do y'all plan to do on the weekend?" and "Y'all plan to do what on the weekend?" should be accepted, y'all.

All y'all listen to the man

What are youse planning to do this weekend?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Clint506209

It uses 'you' but should be referring to multiple people


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Nora-AnneD

It should accept this weekend. No-one would ever say on the weekend in English

Why is everyone so weirded out by "on the weekend"? It sounds perfectly natural to me, everyone I know says it. I'm Canadian by the way?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/susu700886

Im also Canadian, but it sounds weird to me as well


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/M.Clark4

Out of curiosity, is the question mark at the end of your last sentence Canadian? I'm the States by the way? But seriously, "on the weekend" is okay. But I'd probably say "this weekend" or "next weekend."

I said "What are you planning on for the weekend" and was rejected. I know there should have been a "you all" but was there anything else wrong? Because I don't know.
