In English, calendar can refer to several things. I would like the Chinese word that would mean calender in the sense of a planner, like how a teacher might calender her future lesson plans or you might calendar your meetings tomorrow. 谢谢!

  • 安排一下 / 安排上了 sounds natural to me

Mainland China: 日程表 (literally day schedule table)

ROC (Taiwan): 行事曆 (literally matter attendance calendar)

These are both nouns, of course. It is impossible to use these as verbs like the examples specified in the question. In Chinese, you would properly say the equivalent of recording (some event X) in the calendar:


  • I found it's pretty common that nouns are used as verbs in English. I think the use of 'calendar' in OP's examples is ok. But I'm not a native English speaker.

  • @dan I just checked a dictionary, and you're right...you can use it as a verb. Never heard it being used this way in my life, though.

"calendar" can be 把...排进日程表. "calendar your meetings" could be 把会议排进日程表.


I think it is more appropriate you call them schedule.

  • School schedule : 课程表
  • Touring plan : 行程表
  • bus schedule : 巴士行程表
  • Cleaning delegation schedule : 清扫值勤表
