" Partir " signifie " Go away ".

Sortir signifie " Get out " ou " Exit ". Tu sors de chez toi ( tu étais à l'intérieur, et tu es à l'extérieur : tu es donc sorti )


Pour le passé simple et le passé antérieur, je ne saurais pas expliquer dans quelles occasions on les utilise.

Partir = to leave
Sortir = to go out, to get out

Sortir implique que l'on change de lieu.


Passé simplé : récit dans le passé. Peu utilisé dans la vie de tous les jours où on utilise plutôt le passé composé.

Futur antérieur : quelque chose qui se passera dans le futur mais dans le passé par rapport à l'histoire décrite... very confusing Embarassed
exemple : d'ici demain, j'aurai acheté les ingrédients pour faire un gateau
(I don't know the exact translation something like "By tomorrow, I'll have bought the ingredients to make a cake").
L'histoire est située dans le futur ("demain") mais par rapport à ce futur, l'action est passée.

The passé simple (past historic) is much used in literature, but seldom
spoken, only very occasionally. Avoid using it in speaking.

E.g. La nuit fut courte ... the night was short, alternative to
La nuit a été courte. Fut is the passé simple of être in the third person.


Futur antérieur : quelque chose qui se passera dans le futur mais dans le passé par rapport à l'histoire décrite... very confusing Embarassed
exemple : d'ici demain, j'aurai acheté les ingrédients pour faire un gateau
(I don't know the exact translation something like "By tomorrow, I'll have bought the ingredients to make a cake").

By this time tomorrow I will have bought the ingredients to make
a cake. (?)

L'histoire est située dans le futur ("demain") mais par rapport à ce futur, l'action est passée.
