Jack is planning for the meeting

Let’s look at how to use the verb plan today. First of all, plan takes a direct object, and can be followed directly by a noun, so plan + [noun] like this:

  • I am planning a trip to Asia.
  • The marketing department planned a meeting in Chicago.
  • When will you begin planning your wedding.

We can also use plan + [to verb], like this:

  • I am planning to go to Asia.
  • The marketing department planned to hold the meeting in Chicago.
  • When do you plan to get married?

We can also use plan + for. Plan + for means to arrange or organize something, just like plan + [noun] like this:

  • I am planning for my trip to Asia,
  • Jane is planning for her wedding.
  • Tom is in the office planning for the meeting in Chicago.

We can also use plan + on + gerund (VerbING) like this:

  • I am planning on going to Asia,
  • Jane is planning on getting married in October.
  • The marketing department planned on holding the meeting in Chicago.
