How would I say "When are we meeting?" in the context of asking a friend who I am planning to see e.g. tonight.

This should be really easy but I can't seem to find a way that sounds 'French'.

I tried things like:

  • Quand nous nous rencontrerons?
  • Quand nous réunirons-nous?

A natural way to say it could be:

Quand est-ce qu'on se retrouve?

This is more informal but probably suited to the context if you're asking this to a friend.

    This is not that informal. An informal version would be "On se retrouve quand?" Of course there is more formal, as in "Quand se retrouve-t-on?", but none ever says that.

Even more informally than Dahlai's suggestions :

On se revoit quand ?

... sounds more living, native (spoken) French to me.

  • Indeed, or «Quand est-ce qu'on se voit ?», or else «Quand se (re)voit-on?». It appears the key to making this "sound French", as the original question put it, is in the choice of the verb "se voir" : to meet (or "se revoir" : meet again) and also the "indefinite pronoun" : «on» rather than «nous».

  • "se retrouver" doesn't sound like spoken French. It can be used for example if you are texting: "On se retrouve à 10h ?" but becomes weird when spoken. Commented Oct 14, 2016 at 14:51
