    Are the sentences correct?

    Please pay me the tuition fee on the next fourth lesson.
    Please pay me the tuition fee when the next fourth lesson comes.

    (In Singapore, private tutors are paid after every four lessons.)

    Are both sentences correct?

    Many thanks.

    Re: Are the sentences correct?

    I would phrase this as: Please pay [me] the tuition fee when you come for your next fourth lesson.

    I go to my student's house, so is it correct to say "Please pay me the fee on the next fourth lesson"?

    Thank you very much.

    Re: Are the sentences correct?

    LwyrFirat, the + every doesn't work. I'd simply say 'Please pay me after every 4th lesson'. It sounds better to me without 'completing'.
