The translation is obvious but what does that mean, what's the explanation? I'm not a native English speaker... Dank je wel!!

If you say 'maandag gaan we eten' it's the coming Monday or the Monday after (mostly used). If you say 'een maandag gaan we eten' nobody has any idea which Monday that will be, it can be any Monday. If you say just 'maandag' everyone probably know which Monday that is.
