Can you say j'ai du plan mercredi

Like, I have plans on Wednesday (being this Wednesday). You don't need an article if Wednesday is at the start of the sentence, but if it's in the middle?

This question relates to:

Bonjour Jason ! "To have plans" is actually quite a tricky expression to translate. However, you are correct on your usage of "mercredi" to say "on Wednesday": the position in the sentence is irrelevant here. To express "I have plans on Wednesday", meaning "I have things planned for that day.", in French you could say: "J'ai quelque chose de prévu mercredi." (I have something planned) or "J'ai des choses de prévu mercredi." (I have planS) I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !

Hello, I had a similar question. Can we use 'Je vais au cinéma mardi instead of 'Mardi, je vais au cinéma'?
