I'm in level 2, lesson 12, and I see the word "prossima" and "prossimo" placed both before and after "settimana" and "mese." This is confusing. Is there a rule that covers how to structure the sentence?

I understand this can be confusing. Sonia only mentions it in the pronunciation exercises in level 3. Both "prossimo" and "scorso" can be used before or after the noun, they are equally correct and you'll hear both structures. We'll work on making this a bit easier to understand in a future version of the program.

Thanks, Andy. What was most confusing is that when I used it before the noun, and the program expected it to follow the noun, it wouldn't accept my answer. You can see how that would be misleading and baffling.
