“Are you available on the 17th?”

“Can we meet on the 16th?”

“How does the 3rd sound to you?”

“Are you free next week?”

“Would Friday suit you?”

“Is next Tuesday convenient for you?”

“What about sometime next week?”

Agreeing on a date

“Yes, Thursday is fine.”
“Thursday suits me.”
“Thursday would be perfect.”

Suggesting a different date

“I’m afraid I can’t on the 3rd. What about the 6th?”

“I’m sorry, I won’t be able to make it on Monday. Could we meet on Tuesday instead?”

“Ah, Wednesday is going to be a little difficult. I’d much prefer Friday, if that’s alright with you.”

“I really don’t think I can on the 17th. Can we meet up on the 19th?”

Setting a time

Changing the arrangement
