    Smile The teacher said "Off we go then", "Let's get started","Here we go then".

    The teacher said "Off we go then", "Let's get started","Here we go then". Can we use all these sentences when we want to say the teacher said " Let's start (the lesson)?

    No. If the teacher said 'Let's start the lesson', then you cannot say s/he said 'Off we go then / Here we go then /Let's get started'.

    You can use all of those if you are a teacher wanting to start a lesson, though. The second one is the most natural.

    what would he say instead of saying "Let's start the lesson"?

    I said that you can't say the teacher said one sentence if they actually said another.

    The teacher might also say: "Here we go."
    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
