    Wink Week end

    Hi again!

    If I'm talking to several people, what's the right expression: Enjoy your week end or Enjoy your week-ends? (They aren't going to spend the week-end together).

    ------------

    Another question: If I'm saying good bye to someone and the conversation is taking place (Takes place?) on a Tuesday, can I say "Have a nice week-end" or would it be better to say "Have a nice end of the week?" (In this case, I'm not refering to Saturday and Sunday).

    Cheers
    W

    Re: Week end

    1) "Enjoy your weekend" is OK.
    2) It's early enough in the week to say, "Enjoy your week", "Enjoy the rest of your week", "Have a great week". But on Wednesday or Thursday I would say, "Enjoy the rest of your week".

    Which is the right tense in this case: the Present simple or Continuous?

    Cheers

    Re: Week end

    In your example on Tuesday, if you had been discussing something special occurring on the weekend, then "Have a nice weekend" would be appropriate. Otherwise, "have a nice/great rest of the week".

    Cheers
    'is taking place' - it is ongoing with 'I'm saying' so is in the same tense. Note: 'goodbye' and 'weekend' are each 1 word.
