Will this query ever be addressed or am I just not understanding the subtleties of 'leaving'?
The question is: How would you say "They are leaving soon"
From the list of multiple choice answers, I chose only one option: Ils partent bientôt
I am flagged as 'nearly correct' for not choosing : Ils sortent bientôt as well.
It is my understanding from everything I've read in the lesson and via the responses that "sortir" only means 'leaving' when used with 'de'.
Thanks for flagging this up, "Ils sortent bientôt" is now marked as an incorrect answer in the system. As you pointed out, it is not a valid translation for "They are leaving soon".
