• I'll see you on Tuesday.
  • I'll see you on next Tuesday afternoon.

Does anyone know why the second sentence is wrong? Please help - I need the grammar rule!

Whether or not the time of day is mentioned, we don't use both on and next together.

On Saturday we might say 'I'll see you on Tuesday' (the Tuesday of the coming week).

In the early part of the week, we might say 'I'll see you next Tuesday' (Tuesday of the next week).


I don't know the grammar rule, but the second one would be correct as "I'll see you next Tuesday afternoon".

The on is unnecessary there.

  • I'll see you on Tuesday afternoon is also correct. You can have on or next but not both here.
