    Next Year

    If these are not correct, why? What do they mean?
    1. You can do that next year. (Is 'the' ommitted in this sentence?)
    2. You can do that the next year. (I don't hear a lot of people say this.)

    3. You can do it next year.
    4. You can do it the next year.

    Thanks.
