AS SOON AS POSSIBLE / ASAP   できるだけ早く、早急に


  • To do something as soon as possible or ASAP is to do it as quickly as you can.

    Be Careful! ASAP is an abbreviation for as soon as possible, not an acronym. We usually say each letter separately; in other words, “A-S-A-P”.
  • as soon as possible または ASAP とは、できるだけ早く、という意味です。

    注意:ASAP は、as soon as possible の省略形ですが、頭字語ではありません。たいてい、A-S-A-Pと、一つひとつの文字を個別に発音します。
