13 Ways to Ask Americans About Their Weekend Plans

In the video below, Lindsay shares three questions you can use with your American colleagues to ask them about their weekend. Below the video see a list of the three questions with additional ideas for your conversational diversity.  

Different ways to ask someone about their weekend

Lindsay's ideas for asking about someone's weekend:

  • What are you up to this weekend?
  • Any plans for the weekend?/Do you have any plans for the weekend?
  • Are you ready for the weekend?
More ideas:
  1. Doing anything fun this weekend?
  2. What will you be doing this weekend?
  3. How's your weekend shaping up? (idiomatic)
  4. Have a good weekend.
  5. Have fun this weekend!
If you know your colleague's hobbies you can ask about that:
  1. Would you be going skiing this weekend?
  2. Hope you get a chance to go biking this weekend.
  3. Going to the lake this weekend?
If you're team has been working overtime on the project, some other phrases are:
  1. I hope you're not working this weekend!
  2. You deserve a break... don't open your computer this weekend! Have fun!
