Q: What is the difference between early on Saturday morning. and early morning on Saturday ?
A: I think that they mean almost the same thing, it's just how you say it, for example 'I woke up early on Saturday morning' means that 'I woke up on a Saturday morning, on an early hour' and 'I woke up at early morning on Saturday' means that I woke up, while the morning was early, on Saturday'. Morning is early itself, but when you still add the word 'early' to it, it means that you want to mention how early it is, which make it seem like it's even earlier than just saying 'early on Saturday morning'. Hope you understand 😅
Q: What is the difference between On Saturday night we can talk for awhile and On Saturday night we can talk for a while ?
A: Good question.

"Awhile" means a short time「短時間」. Because it's an adverb, a preposition word isn't really necessary:
- "I stood outside smoking awhile."
- "We talked awhile"
- "I will be at my school in awhile."
- "Awhile ago, your sister came by."
- "He was eating for only awhile."

"A while" means a period of time「長時間」. Here you'll need a preposition:
- "I stood outside smoking for a while."
- "My baby nephew slept for a while."
- "It took me a while to do my homework."
- "It took a while for the weather to clear up"
- "It took me a little while to clean up the yard."

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? the Saturday after coming "I need to say the saturday in the next week or after that "
A: @Midoo: This is why "next Saturday" could be confusing -- some could take it to mean this coming Saturday, others might understand it to be the next Saturday after this coming Saturday. That's why I like to clarify by saying it the way I indicated previously, i.e. A week from this coming Saturday. I think that makes it perfectly clear. If you want to say the Saturday after that (i.e. in 2 weeks and a bit), I would say 2 weeks from this coming Saturday.

That's just a few variations you could use to say the same thing. Hope it helps :)

Q: i noticed that the Saturday meeting will be set in Shanghai. does this sound natural?
A: Usually "set in" only refers to the location in a movie, book, etc.
"I noticed that the Saturday meeting will be in Shanghai" is fine. Like this, the sentence feels like you are emphasizing "Saturday", maybe to compare it to the "Sunday meeting" which will be in Beijing.
"I noticed that the meeting, Saturday, will be in Shanghai". If you change it like this, Saturday is just an extra fact about the meeting, but not emphasized.
