Which of the following is correct? "He is busy at weekends" or "He is busy on weekends"?
(R. Satish, Madurai)
Both are acceptable. "At weekends" is commonly used in British English; the Americans, on the other hand, tend to use "on weekends." Use whichever expression you feel comfortable with.
*I informed my new boss that I do not do any office related work at weekends.
*My friends and I are planning to go sailing on the weekend.
