    Hello!

    Do we say:

    -"What do you usually do on mondays at 9 a.m?"

    OR

    Either, but the version favoured by hanky is the more common. The version with the plural is typically used for recurring appointments: 'We have our regular status meeting at 9 a.m. on Mondays' - but the singular is possible there too (possibly - equally optionally - preceded by "a": 'We have our regular status meeting at 9 a.m. on a Monday.'

    The plural could be used for a possible appointment: 'Are you usually free on Thursdays, after lunch - say?'
