    Default What's your plan for/during this weekend?

    1. What's your plan for this weekend?

    2. What's your plan during this weekend?

    3. What will you do for this weekend?

    4. What will you do during this weekend?

    5. What will you do this weekend?


    I wonder which are proper expression.

    I do not find these natural. We usually say 'What are your plans for this weekend?' The first is one is possible if you are asking about a particular plan.

    Are you sure about those? What's is short for What is.

    In BrE, "What have you got planned for the/this weekend?" would be the most likely.

    I am not a native speaker.

    Hello, I think that you can say only this: What is your plan for the weekend.

    Nickle.
    If I have made any mistakes, please tell me about them. I need to improve my English anyway and I hope you'll help me.

    As you can see from the other responses, there isn't just one way of saying this so to suggest that "you can say only this" is entirely incorrect.
