Hello,

can I use the verb "to fix" with "appointment" and further, can I say "I fixed an appointment at a fortune-teller"??

Or a consult ? is it better?

Thanks

Pamela
I don't like any of your suggestions. Here is the most natural version: "I made an appointment with a fortune-teller."
Hi.

As for the appointment, you can

book/arrange/have/miss an appointment.

As for your context, I suggest arrange and make.

Hi,

thanks for the replies.

Is "to fix" or "to take" an appointment really incorrect?

To MalRey: when you write that you don´t like, does it mean that it is incorrect or it just sounds odd?

Hi.

Take does not collocate with appoinment, but you will be understood if you use fix, however, it is not a common verb amongst native speakers.

Dear Hrsanei,

thanks. It is clear. I will try to remember that "to take"does not collocate with appointment.

It is incorrect in the sense that the meaning is semantically unclear. For "appointment", these are verbs which are usually semantically associated with it.

I Made an appoinment....

I scheduled an appointment.....

I called for an appointment.....
Dear,

thanks. I got it.Verb "to take" is not good in that context.

Hi,

I cancelled my class on Wednesday because of my travel to somewhere but my travel was cancelled due to a problem. I want to say my teacher to hold my class on Wednesday again. Is it correct to say that "Would you please hold my class on Wednesday at 7:30 pm?"

Thanks a lot,
