Plans / A Plan

Hi again! Sorry I haven’t written a new blog in a few weeks 😦  My summer cold became a summer flu so I have been sick for almost 5 weeks! I will try and get some extra blogs up in the next few days 🙂

“Do you have any plans for the weekend?” is a very common North American phrase that you’re very likely to hear on Friday. “Plan” is always used in the plural (“plans”), and this expression means “What are you going to do this weekend?”
“Do you have a plan?” is used for when you have a specific goal in mind, and never to just ask about what someone is going to do during a certain time.
A: I am going to start a business.
B: What is your plan?
A: I will open a restaurant that sells the world’s best hamburgers.


Wrong: Do you have a plan for tonight?
Right: Do you have any plans for tonight.
Wrong: Do you have any plan for the weekend?
Right: Do you have any plans for the weekend?
…are you planning.. 
“What are you planning to do this weekend?” has the same meaning as “Do you have any plans for the weekend?” 

“Do you have any plans for the weekend? Do you want to see a movie with me?”
