Mensagem:  Hello everyone.

Could you help me? I have a question about the use of this and next related to calendars. 

I've learned in this site that "next weekend" doesn't mean "próximo final de semana", it means "o fim de semana depois do próximo". But I was reading an English coursebook, written by native speakers of English, and they consider "next Saturday" as "próximo sábado", instead of "this Saturday". I wonder if they made a mistake or the usage of "this" and "next" may depend on the each English speaking country or maybe there are different rules for "weekend" and days of the week as "Saturday". I don't know. Does anybody know?

Thanks in advance.

Andrea.
