The Chinese word 周末 means “weekend” in English. It is a combination of the characters 周 meaning “week” and 末 meaning “end”. The term is commonly used in China to refer to the two days off work or school that most people have on Saturday and Sunday. It can also be used to refer to a specific weekend, such as “last weekend” or “next weekend”.
