    I'm going to my karate lesson on Friday at 6 p.m. (describing a personal weekly programme)
    Hello! Can you help me, please? In this sentence, does "my" sound correct? Or is it better to say "the"?
    Thanks a lot in advance!

    'My' sounds perfect.
    'I'm going to my karate lesson on Friday evening at six.'

    "O'clock" only works with numbers from 1 to 12.

    If it's weekly at the same time that's a habitual action and you need a different tense.

    "I'm going to my karate lesson on Friday at six" only refers to one time, this coming Friday.

    If you do it every Friday you need to say something like:
    "I go to my karate lessons on Fridays at six."
    or
    "My karate lessons are on Fridays at six."

    And it's definitely "my".
