Partir/Sortir

In this example, why is the answer not sortir? 


Thank you

Bonjour Jehan,

Both 'sors'and 'pars' are accepted as correct answers. 

I had a look at your test history and I can see why your answers weren't accepted. I have emailed you a response via our Helpdesk. You should receive an email shortly. 

Bonne journée !

Hi Jehan,

If you had written "Je sors de ma maison" that would be correct.

But when you write "Je sors de chez moi" this is incorrect because "chez" is a preposition and so this construction would have two prepositions (de and chez) one after the other.

It may however be acceptable to write "Je sors de chez-moi" where "chez-moi" is a noun?

Hope this helps.

Thanks Jim. That is a bit confusing, but certainly makes in much clearer now. Thank you
