Hi rosario70,

This is another way of saying 'Just as I was going to say...' If you look up 'be about to do' in our dictionary, you can see a definition and examples.

I like this series of 'Word on the Street'. Sometimes the conversation speed of Stephen and Ashlie is a bit too fast to catch, but mostly I think I can understand what they say.
Ashlie 'Holmes' is so cute!

"so let’s start at the beginning". Does the sentence "so let's start from the beginning" have the same meaning or is totally wrong due to the preposition? Thank you very much indeed ! Keep up with your remarkable work !


Both are possible, although I'd say that 'at the beginning' is more common and has a wider use.
