Near : He is near= il est proche, Close : He is close = il est proche, Next : he is next to me= il est à côté de moi, Beside: He is beside me= il est à côté de moi.

Synonyms: near and close, next and beside.

Note: you would say "close to," not simply "close," if you are talking about proximity to an object.

Aussi, "near" et "close" peuvent impliquer attachement émotionnel, pas nécessairement emplacement physique. "next to" et "beside" se réfèrent exclusivement à l'emplacement

Well, there is a song lyric, "I can't get next to you." But that's a pretty unusual usage.

Sometimes, couples say "yes, we're very close [to each other]."

If you are in front of me or behind me, you may be near me, but not beside me, because 'beside me' means on one side or the other. To the side, and not in front of, nor behind, nor above, nor below.
