How is "semana que vem" translated as "next week"? Is this a common expression?

Yes!! It is used a lot in daily conversation!! Semana que vem = próxima semana, but the first one is much more common.

ah..! thank you! :) I am realizing that it seems like there are two kinds of Portuguese.. one for writing.. and one for speaking.. tô nem aí.. sei lá.. cê é pamonha hein!? tá pron.. meio é seis.. semana que vem.. I wish I could focus more on the conversational part :)

Unfortunately you're right on what you say =/ and sometimes it is hard to deal with that =(

We have the same expression in the US but it didn't accept it when I wrote that.

OK, now I'm just astonished that I didn't understand any of your example sentences...it really must be a different kind of Portuguese :D

To add to the discussion, the literal translation of "semana que vem" is "week that comes", so the coming week. That is how we say "next week". =]

Or "the following week" which is not accepted, unfortunately.

Is "...ate a semana que vem." also possible?

I hope so. That's how I would say it. It sounds a little strange to me without it. But it didn't ask me to write in Portuguese. =]

I did as well. I was marked wrong but I don't understand why.

Why is the week to come not accepted? It's maybe not very common but surely correct if not very poetic!

So...no "a" after "até"? My brethren, I'm confused.

You can say "a semana que vem" too.
