    The meaning of a sentence

    I just found a sentence “Let’s not move too fast on this” and I can not understand it. Is there anyone paraphrase it for me? And how can I express this meaning in a more native way? Thank U!

    “Let’s not move too fast on this” is a normal and natural English sentence. It most contexts it would mean "Let's take our time before making a decision or taking an action". Let's go slowly.

    Welcome to the forums, Your Highness.


    Please note that a better title would have been Let’s not move too fast on this.

    There is no need to write a new post to say "Thank you". There is a "Thank" button in the bottom left-hand corner of every post. Simply click that button on any post you find helpful. It saves time for all of us.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
