Hi,

- Hey Alice let's go for a (little) bit walk.

- Hey Alice let's go for a walk a (little) bit.

I tried to create two sentences, but I could not determine where to put 'a bit'. Which one is OK according to you? To me, the second one seems OK.

Thanks

    Neither is correct. You could say:

    Let's go for a little walk.

    Let's take a little bit of a walk.

    Let's take a bit of a walk.

    ...and probably several other formations, but not the ones you presented.

    "a little bit" is correct. However you cannot say "a little bit walk" or even "a bit walk". This is because "bit" is a noun. You must say, "A little bit of a walk,"
