This is just a quick note about a common mistake among students.
予約 can be translated as “appointment” or “reservation”, but these are most often used for when we are talking about a business meeting or a dentist appointment etc.
When we are talking about meeting our friends, we say “I have plans.”
- Do you have plans for dinner?
- Sorry, I already have plans.
- If you don’t have plans, let’s go for a drink.
- I don’t have any plans for the weekend.
- I have plans to meet my friends.
