    On holidays

    Is it correct to say;
    "I revise my lessons on holidays"?

    Re: On holidays

    It's a bit strange. Perhaps you mean this:
    I revise my lessons while (I'm) on holidays.

    I mean "when I have holidays, free from school."

    Re: On holidays

    Can we say 'I revise my holiday lessons'?
    I am not a teacher.

    No, Matthew.

    'Revise lessons' is not natural to me.

    I review my lesson notes when I am on holiday.
    I revise (for my exams) during the school holidays.

    This might work in certain contexts, but I suspect with a different meaning than you intend.

    If I'm a teacher, and I have lessons to teach about various holidays, and they need to be changed or updated, then I might 'revise my holiday lessons'.

    For example, I might teach a lesson about the 4th of July holiday in the US for a civics class, and feel that I need to revise it to keep it fresh or make it more engaging.
