    arrange a plan

    Hello dear teachers and experts,

    It's been a long time not chating with you. I was ill and was far away from my PC.

    My question is:

    What does 'arrange a plan' mean?

    I rely on your swift and courtesy reply.

    Personally, I would not say "arrange a plan" but I'm assuming you got it from somewhere! Without the context, it's hard to say exactly what it means. I would guess that it simply means to make a plan, to make arrangements.

    For example : Friday is Peter's birthday. We need to make a plan! What are we going to do for him?

    It doesn't generally mean a plan on paper, like the plan of a house. It means to plan something you're going to do in the future.

    Just a quick observation and query...
    Is it righ to say "we need to make a pla"
    I would rather think "we need to plan" conveys the meaning.

    what will be more appropriate..
    We need to make a plan
    We need to plan.
