    weak/strong on

    I am weak on mathematics but strong on English.

    Do native speakers use 'on' as a preposition for 'weak' and 'strong'?

    Thanks.

    Re: weak/strong on

    I normally use 'in', , though 'at' seems acceptable.

    I think we might use 'on' for a particular aspect -I understand most of the French grammar I have learnt, but I am a little weak on the subjunctive
