    In English, "Next Next Monday"

    Hi Everyone,

    In English, can we say "the meeting will be held on the next next Monday"? Please advise.

    Hi EngFan. No, you can't say "the next next Monday".
    If you are meaning to say "not next Monday, but the Monday after that", then you can say:
    "The meeting will be held on the Monday after next"
    or
    "The meeting will be held on Monday week".

    I have noticed some differences in how US, British and Australia/New Zealand speakers express this and there are other options, but I won't confuse you.

    "The meeting will be held on the Monday after next" is just perfect!

    Sometimes we say "The following Monday" when it's obvious. Yes, it can be confusing :)

    To avoid any misunderstanding, specify the exact date.
