I'm just gonna leave this here

I won't again write "jeudi suivant" in quiz answers but I hear it a lot when making plans, so I'm putting this here :-)

This question relates to:
French lesson "When to use "demain"/"hier" vs "le lendemain"/"la veille" vs "le jour suivant"/"le jour précédent""

Hi Ch,

Technically speaking :

prochain/e = next

suivant/e = following /the one after that

and they are used precisely in French unlike happens sometimes in English.

 e.g.

La semaine prochaine je vais en France et la semaine suivante je serai en Chine Next week I am going to France and the following week I'll be in China

Le prochain train s'arrête à Birmingham mais le train suivant va directement à Manchester The next train stops in Birmingham but the one after goes directly to Manchester

Hope this helps!
