Prochain vs Suivant

Prochain vs Suivant

I get confused between prochain and suivant. The next day is le jour suivant, but the next summer is l'ete prochain, right? How do I know when to use what? Thanks.

Bonjour John ! The difference is as such: - "Prochain" = (x) next l'été prochain = NEXT summer - "Suivant" = following/next l'été suivant = the following summer / THE next summer I hope that's helpful! À bientôt !
So the difference is that suivant goes with THE? So, l'été prochain je vais visiter Paris, et l'été suivant (deux ans de maintenant) je vais visiter Madrid. Is that correct? Thanks.

Oui, c'est parfaitement correct !
