LEAVE OR LET
 

Hello dear friends,

I need your help.  I want to write a sentence on a classroom poster and I donīt know if I have to write:
 
    LEAVE your imagination fly
 
    or
 
    LET your imagination fly.
 
Are both fine or LEAVE is not correct...?
 
Thanks a lot

leave is a verb implying movement, meaning to go away, to depart. so I īm pretty sure the correct option here is "let" .
Hugs.

Hello,
 
Let is the correct answer here. You can also replace FLY into GO.

Here in the US, there are some people (mostly older) who use "leave" to mean "allow" (let). It has always been incorrect. "Let" is the correct word here.
