    Are you available weekdays?

    Hi.

    My friend asked me to have a drink with him this Sunday. I told him that I don't have time on weekends because I have some students to handle. I do have spare time on weekdays. So I asked him "Are you available weekdays"? Is my italic sentence natural?

    Note that in BrE, it's normal to say "at weekends", rather than "on weekends" or just "weekends". Also, I would say "Are you available on weekdays?"

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    How about any weekday, as you're not going drinking every night?
