    Next or coming April 24

    Hi. Is there a better way to express the meaning of the underlined expression? "Armenia will commemorate the 100th anniversary of the Armenian Genocide on April 24 next year."

    That works. Some would use April 24th.

    Australian speakers would use either order as long as it said 24th.
    More relevantly to your subject line, yes you can say "in the coming April". The "coming April 24th" doesn't work for me. "Next year" is quite sufficient.

    Re: Next or coming April 24

    I don't stick to a particular word order with dates. Sometimes I use April 24th and sometimes I use 24th April.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
