Nearest and Next
Nearest means ‘most near in space’.
Next means ‘coming immediately after, in space or in order’.
Note that in a few fixed expressions, next is used to mean ‘nearest in space’.
Next and the next
Next week, next month etc are the week or month just after this one. If I am speaking in May, next month is June; if I am speaking in the year 2005, next year is 2006. Prepositions are not generally used before these time expressions.
The next week means the period of seven days, starting at the moment of speaking.
Note that when there is no number, we say the next few days/weeks/months, not the next days/weeks/months.
