    Question A question on "days"

    Hello,

    Does it make sense?

    "We can talk on the following day"

    If you're talking about a future period relating to another future period, then yes.

    "Let's have the actual meeting next Tuesday, and then we can talk the following day" = Meet next Tuesday, talk next Wednesday.

    If it's in relation to now (today), then no. You would say "We can talk tomorrow".
