Can the 'Le' go after London ie. '... Likai lundun le'

Same question. Can a native speaker please answer this?

Sure can! I had the same problem.

离 (lí) = to leave/without
开 (kāi) = to open/to start
离开 (líkāi) = to leave/to depart

离 (lí) can also mean "from" when talking about distance, which we learned in a previous lesson I think.

I used 他去年离开伦敦了, which was rejected.
