43. Plan to 予定、つもり

If you plan on speaking Japanese these two words are very useful:予定 yotei and つもり tsumori

予定 yotei and つもり are very similar in meaning and usage. 予定 conveys more of a “schedule” feel whereas つもり is more of a conviction of doing something.

To add つもり or 予定 to any verb just find the simple form…

日本に行くつもり/予定です。
nihon ni iku tsumori (or yotei) desu.
I intend to go to Japan.[if you use tsumori, you “intend” to go one way or another; if you use yotei you already have a hard schedule set to leave at a certain time.]


Here is how you add it to a する verb

あなたと結婚するつもり/予定です。
anata to kekkon suru tsumori (or yotei) desu.
I intend to marry you.

You can also use it with nouns by sticking a の before the tsumori and after adjectives. But for now concentrate on the verb usage.
