Nettoyer is a verb, to clean: Je nettoye ma voiture. I am cleaning my car.

Propre is an adjective, clean: La bouteille est bien propre. The bottle is
quite clean.

>to leave laisser partir

Laisser, to let, to leave: Laisse-moi essayer ton vélo. Let me try
your bicycle.

Laissez-moi seule! Leave me alone!


Partir, to leave, to go away: Il faut que je parte! (subjunctive). I must go!

Elle est partie hier. She left yesterday.

Je suis parti samedi dernier. I left last Saturday.

Nous sommes partis pour Paris à 16h30. We left for Paris at 4.30 pm.

Laissez-lui partir. Let him go/let him leave.
