How good is your English?

Oh no! You've made a mistake.


When we have to reschedule a meeting for an earlier date than originally planned, we move it up.


We cannot use ‘speed up’ because it would mean ‘make the meeting go faster.’ The expression ‘reterminate’ makes no sense at all and ‘prepone’ does not exist, at least not in US or GB English. To make sure you’re correctly understood, use ‘move up.’



As he planned to be away in January, Ted asked if we could move the meeting up by a week.
