Soon/más pronto/próximamente

Hola, ¿hay cualquiera diferencia entre las dos frases? ¿Son correctas?
muy pronto. No estoy seguro de que esa frase es correcta. Creo que las otras dos son correctas
más pronto
próximamente

Yo querría ir a la playa muy pronto
Yo querría ir a la tienda más pronto
Yo querría ir al Europa próximamente

Muchas gracias

Maybe I'm wrong, but I'll try:

Muy pronto: very early
Más pronto: earlier
Próximamente: soon

All of them are correct.

Which is not is correct is the tense of the verb: "quisiera ir" instead of "querría" would be better

¡Gracias! (¿Cuál verbo tiempo es quisiera?) Nunca he visto ese formo de querer.

Rusty has a spectacular aura aboutRusty has a spectacular aura about
Quisiera is technically the imperfect subjunctive, but it is used to express 'I would like' (polite way to say 'I want').

I think that is more correct, in other words, more better...

Well, "más pronto" can be translated into "earlier" and "earliest" . I think in the example, I could say:

I'd like to go to the beach earlier

Am I wrong?

And.. do you mean "más mejor"?

Tengo una pregunta que es parecido. ¿Como se dice "just"?

Por ejemplo:
I just heard the news . . . or . . . I just went there yesterday!

"Justo/justamente" o "acabo de" (acabamos, etc.)

Acabo de oír las noticias... (justo/justamente acabo de oír las noticias...)
Justo fuimos ayer allí.

Con "ayer" no puedes decir "acabo de".

Acabo de aprendí como se dice "just".

Justo aprendí como se dice "just".

Hay situaciones cuando no puedes usar 'justo'?
