Bonjour Murat, Je vais me lever tôt The negative statement, I am not going to get up early seems to me to be Je ne vais pas me lever tôt ! However, it is possible that Je vais ne pas me lever tôt ! could also be correct, i.e. I am going to not get up early. Perhaps we need to hear from Aurélie as to which is correct on this. Ron

No, ne . . . pas needs to be separated, for sure

Hi Murat 

'Ne pas se lever' is the correct infinitive form for 'not getting up'.

e.g.

Je ne vais pas me lever tôt demain matin = I am not going to get up early tomorrow

Il ne va pas se lever devant elle car il a mal au dos = He is not going to rise up in front of her as he has back ache

Ils ne se lèvent jamais avant 11 heures du matin = They never get out of bed before 11 am

Hope this helps!
