Assunto:  Re: On/at weekends
 
Mensagem:  You can say "on the weekend" and "on weekends" as in the examples below. The use of the preposition "at" in this expression however doesn't sound native in AmE. Ex: The party is held every year on the weekend closest to his birthday. Parties are usually held on weekends. The closest possibility of using the preposition "at" would be in the expression "at the week's end".
