I tonight this might help my Japanese friends. I commonly see this mistake and I’ll help you correct it.

When Japanese people are busy, they usually say
“sorry I have a plan”. ❌
Instead, it makes sense to say:
“sorry, I have plans.” ✔️

I hope this helped!

    If the plan is only one(e.g. only to clean backyard ), still "plans" is correct?

    @Masa it sounds more natural to still say “I have plans” which basically means you’re busy
