sounds like "Je vais sortir" to me it might just be me

Same with me, at least on regular speed. Slow speed sounds right.

bro how many languages do you speak holy hell

It's more like achieving personal goal of finishing 25 crowns of each language rather than actual learning and use it in real life.

I think vais is more open than veux

Je veuxs-sortir, it blends

sortir doesn't mean to leave in google translate <3


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/JasonSnipe1

are these three words (sortir,partir,quitter) synonymous and can be used interchangeably?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/andersxnn

i think its like the words quick, fast and rapid. They all are interchangeable but may not be used the same all the time.

Sortir = Exit, go out, come out, and may also be used for "to take out" in the sense of take (something) out of one's pocket. It should not be used for "leave".

Then why does Duo tell us that?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Neda-Fr

They can't give all the possible answers to the computer & the computer doesn't have a brain, so these problems happen. But u also didn't give the best translation


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/SabnSaa

The female voice saying "sortir" in the slow version sounds like an American with a bad accent, very hard "r".


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Klancer444

What about partir? I'm pretty sure it's more common.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Jana376182

Yes, partir and sortir are very similar.

To go out; as on a date. Romance is in the air.
