Which one is correct, the activity starts next week or starts from next week? And why?
Longman Dictionary has this entry for 'start' in this sense:
intransitive, transitive: to begin happening, or to make something begin happening
It also specifies the usage "starting (from) now/tomorrow/next week, etc," giving the example "You have two hours to complete the test, starting now."
It's also been suggested to me that if I say let's start (from) next Friday, people sometimes could get confused regarding exactly which Friday I'm talking about.
So, it is better to use the following Friday instead of next Friday. Is this the case?
Here are the options:
- Let's start next Friday
- Let's start from next Friday
- Let's start the following Friday
- Let's start from the following Friday
Which is best?
