    Question leave/let

    Hi,

    Which is more correct 'I'll let you take your shower now' or 'I'll leave you take your shower now' or 'I will leave (ie hang up the phone) so that you can take your shower now?

    Thanks

    Re: leave/let

    In AmE, it is customary to say "I'll let you take your shower now."

    If you're on the telephone, you'd say "I'll let you go now so that you can take your shower."

    However, if you are visiting someone and they need to bathe and get ready to go out, you might say "I'll leave now so that you can take your shower."
