28 Examples of “Weekend” To Use In Japanese
We often talk to our friends about weekends to hang out, don’t we? Such as “What are you doing this weekend?”, however, do you correctly use it in Japanese? Could you say “I was just relaxed at home last weekend.” in Japanese? I’d say you talk to your friends about your days off to go out somewhere. So if you ask native speakers about their days off, you would be able to get along with them much. Let’s ask them how they spend their weekend!
“週末” means “Weekend”. Native speakers sometimes say either “土日” as the meaning of “週末“. “土日” is more casual than “週末“, so you would be able to use “土日” to a person who you get along with. Although “土日” is not that rude word, don’t use it in business situations. And “今週末” mean “THIS weekend” which is often used as well for a specific weekend which you want to emphasize such as a party, a birthday, a concert, etc. Furthermore, “先々週の週末(two weekends ago)”, “先週末(last weekend)”, “来週末(next weekend)” and “再来週末 (weekend after next)” are also used to explain the specific weekend. However, “今土日“, like “今週末“, is the wrong way to use even you want to emphasize. “今週の土日(This weekend)” is correct.
