"the next two weeks" We say "next week" but do not say "next two weeks". Am I correct? I think "the next two weeks" sounds better. Just intuitively, I'm not sure. By the way, should I say “the assignments for the next two weeks” or “the next two weeks’ assignments”? Thank you! Learning a second language is so difficult:(

Both are correct and both are commonly used.

So if "the next 2", why not "the next"? Sometimes it's optional, sometimes it's up to the context. For example, when you talk about past event, like, "he went there on Feb 2, the next week, he came back" (when the week before "the next week" is implied/referred to).

Were you said about the assigment it was right
