What do you mean by this weekend?

Hello everyone!

In today`s blog I just wanted to talk about how to talk about weekends, and specifically on the time reference "this weekend". This is a fairly simple subject, however because it`s used differently depending on what part of the week it is, it can sometimes be a bit confusing for students.

For example if someone asks you what you did this weekend on Monday or Tuesday, then they`re most likely asking you what you did the previous weekend. On the other hand, if someone asks you on Thursday what you`re going to do this weekend then they are asking about your plans for the upcoming weekend. Basically, at the begining of the week "this weekend" refers to last weekend, and at the end of the week it refers next weekend.

If you`re still not sure whether the person you`re talking to is asking about last weekend or next weekend, another thing to pay attention to is the verbs they use. If you hear a past tense verb, for example "did", then you can assume they`re asking about last weekend. If you hear present tense or present progressive tense verb, for example "going" or "doing", then they are most likely asking about the coming weekend.

In conclusion, it can be a bit difficult to understand what someone means when they ask about "this weekend". However if you keep in mind what day it is and listen for the verb tense being used, then you`ll be able to respond easily!
