    Sundays and every Sunday

    1. The clinic opens on every Sunday.

    2. The clinic opens on Sundays.

    3. The clinic opens on all Sundays.

    4. The clinic opens on all Sunday

    Are the above sentences the same?

    Thanks.

    I think only #2 is natural.
    I am not a teacher.

    Re: Sundays and every Sunday

    2 is correct. If you remove "on" from 1, it's OK. 3 and 4 don't work no matter what you do to them. Additionally, 4 is lacking a closing punctuation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
