    Default What did you do this week?

    Hello.
    I wanted to know if these sentences are correct.

    What did you do this week?

    What did you do this weekend?

    Did anything interesting happen to you this week?

    I'm not sure because some people say that we shouldn't use "this week" with Past Simple because "this week" is not finished. However, with "this weekend", I think, it may be different case as it could mean "the most recent weekend" or "last weekend".
    What do you think?

    Default Re: What did you do this week?

    In some contexts, it works- on Friday afternoon after the school week has finished, for example, you could ask What did you do this week? The week hasn't finished, but that part of it has.
