    start with/from

    Hi everyone,

    Are these 2 sentences both correct?

    1. Let's start with exercise N1.
    2. Let's start from exercise N1.


    Thank you.

    I would normally expect "with" in that use.

    I would normally expect to see 'Let's start with exercise #1' (read as '...exercise number one').

    Not a teacher.

    I would say 'let's get started with exercise #1.':)

    That works with a capital "L" in "Let's".
