Don't loose hope very fast.

    This might be an ELL.se issue, as it sounds unnatural in more than one way. I would welcome more context. "Quickly" may be the adverb you're after. – livresque Jul 10 '14 at 5:25

    You seem to mean too early rather. – Kris Jul 10 '14 at 6:18
  • This is a common error: loose in your example should be lose. Lose is a verb; loose is an adjective. – JLG Jul 10 '14 at 12:24

Straightaway or right away are useful expressions:

without delay; immediately or promptly


  • If you have been attacked call the police straightaway.

  • Our aim is to resolve your complaint straightaway.

I suspect that most native speakers would express this instruction as :

Don't lose hope too soon.
