    Question in the coming week

    When somebody says "I am going to visit you in the coming week". Does he mean he is going to visit me in the next 7 days or the next week? Thank you for your help~

    It could mean either. You'd have to be more specific (at least for me).

    Thank you. That's what he said. I will reply the email and ask for clarification.
