Grammar

“Let’s” vs. “Let me”

In the dialogue, Sandy said, “Let’s see how it looks” and “Let me see.”

Let’s” is short for “let us,” and it means “we should do this together” or “Can we do this together?”

The structure is “Let’s + simple verb.” Look at the following examples:
Let’s go to the movies after work. (in this example, the speaker wants to go to the movies with a friend.) Let’s study for the test tonight.(in this example, the speaker wants to study with a friend.)

Let me have a soda, please*.
(in this example, the speaker wants a soda.) *Use “please” with “Let me” to be polite.
