    Quickly and fast

    I found the following sentence in a grammar book.

    "Let's walk ( ) to the bus stop.

    My answer is fast but the model answer is quickly.

    May I know the reason?

    Re: Quickly and fast

    One needs an adverb there and both words are adverbs. The only difference would be personal preference and style. I would personally use "quickly", but that doesn't make "fast" wrong.
