I somehow keep hearing native speakers of English saying "next next week" here. Is it now common to say that among native speakers? I feel it a bit strange.

Very uncommon (at least here in California) I would say "the week after next."

I would never use this, I would use - the week after next.
Students: We have free audio pronunciation exercises.
I see it a lot in ESL and in the international community. I teach at an international school in Japan and the kids say it all the time, no matter how often you correct them!
I guess my coworkers have gotten it from our students. Having had a bit of upbringing in the States as a kid, I feel it VERY strange.
Thanks for the explanation, it is now clearer to me.

I am from China, I think Japan has similar language logic with us. Most probably it is from the local language grammar - we have that kind of expression in Chinese too.
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
In South Africa too - most people say "next of next week" in reference to the "week before next." Can someone advice?

Don't use it unless you are in South Africa.

The week before next is this week!
