    Re: Could you please correct my choices?

    As far as the "weekend" question is concerned, there is a BrE vs AmE difference.

    BrE: What are you doing at the weekend?
    AmE: What are you doing on the weekend?

    BrE: At weekends, I go to my house in the countryside.
    AmE: On weekends, I play hockey.

    It's "Can you find me in this picture?" in both BrE and AmE.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Sondra, you should know by now that a better title would have been on/at the weekends.

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
