Hi,

If I give teaching classes somewhere and can’t go some day for some reason, but want to compensate the hours by putting the lecture off until the coming Monday (Monday is my day-off.), is it correct and natural to say, “Sorry, Today’s class will not occur.I would like to postpone it until the coming Monday. I’ve got to go somewhere else.”?

Please let me know, If you have a more natural way of converying the same information.

Great regards,
Hungry

Sorry, I have to postpone today’s class until next Monday, as I have an appointment."

Many teachers would not feel that it was necessary to give a reason.

Dear Clive,

Thanks a lot the response.

I have two questions:

1) Is it correct to use "next" when the current day (i.e. the day I am not going there) is Saturday?

6) If I have to visit my aunt, can I use the word "appointment"?

I have two questions:

1) Is it correct to use "next" when the current day (i.e. the day I am not going there) is Saturday? I would just say until Monday.

6) If I have to visit my aunt, can I use the word "appointment"? Not really, an appointment sounds more business-like. I'd just say something like for personal reasons.
