question from kwiz

Why is "elle va ne pas partir" wrong?

Hi Meggie, 

The ne...pas goes round the first verb -

Elle ne va pas partir 

Is the correct answer.

Bonne Continuation !

Bonjour Meggie,

From the lesson:-

"You can say: Tu peux ne pas venir.
However, in that case, it means: You can not come /  You're allowed not to come."

I suspect that the above is the source of your query.

Your query "elle va ne pas partir" does not make sense in English -->She is going to not leave.

This would need to be written "Elle ne va pas partir" --> "She is not going to leave"

Hope this helps.

Bonne continuation
