אמוּר ל…
 
If you wish to express in Hebrew “I am supposed to be… [blank]”, you’d use the phrase אָמוּר ל (ah-MOOR le…), or  אָמוּרָה ל (ah-moo-RAH le…), if you’re a female. It means, literally, I am said to…
 
For example, right now I might say אֲנִי אָמוּר לִהְיוֹת בַּמִּטָּה (ah-NEE ah-MOOR lee-hyoht bah-mee-TAH) – I am supposed to be in bed.
 
 
מיטה
 
 
Another possibility is אֲנִי צָרִיךְ/צְרִיכָה ל (ah-NEE tsah-REEKH/tsree-KHAH le…) – I need to be…
 
For example, אֲנִי צָרִיךְ לְדַבֵּר עִם אָדָם בַּבּוֹקֵר (ah-NEE tsah-REEKH le-dah-BEHR eem AH-dahm bah-BOH-kehr) – I need to speak with Adam (of RustyMike Radio) in the morning, so I can do the Ulpan.com Hebrew Word of the Day radio-style.
