    what do the phrases mean?

    hi,

    Please tell me what do they mean? I couldn't find them in dictionaries. Had better with example sentences.

    1. with a slow hand
    2. on a fast track

    Thanks

    Paula

    Re: what do the phrases mean?

    Hi Paula,

    I'm afraid I can't help with the first one

    But the latter depends on the context you use it in - e.g. when speaking about a project being developed and implemented very quickly, it is said that it is done on a fast track, or on a fast track schedule.

    Hope it helps.
