According to this context, what is the meaning of 'let's get going'? Is it like 'We should start now!'? If not could you suggest one and tell me if it is an idiom or an idiomatic phrase?
Thanks in advance
"Quick, let's be on our way" works too.
Thanks for you reply, so both can be possible according to the context.
a) We should start now.
b) Quick, let's be on our way.
And, yes, given the context both "a" and "b" would be correct.
An idiomatic phrase is something like "lend me a hand". It means to help someone do something. Of course you cannot lend someone your hand. It's a figurative expression.
Sorry I misspelled should in my earlier post. I think it’s time to quit for the day.
Thank you for your reply.
