De plus infinitive verb

Hello,

I have a question. I am working on this sentence. Elle menace de partir for the present tense. 

 I was wondering why they use de partir instead of  à meaning to leave.

Thanks

The correct usage is menacer quelqu'un de faire quelque chose. Many verbs take de and others take à. Some even take both and change meaning. Best you learn the prepositions to use along with the verb.
