Is there a difference between "l'année passée" and "l'année dernière" or can they both mean "last year"? Thanks!

This relates to:
Prochain / dernier = Next / last (durations) -

Hi Patrick,

this is a question about nuance which, of course, benefits from the input of a native speaker. That said, I would say that they are about as similar to each other as "last year" and "the year past".
