    Exclamation Re: is this correct in English?

    I think neither of the sentences makes any sense. Seems the word leave can not be used that way.

    It is not in English !
    Obviously, it is a typical mistake made by foreign speakers which is a subconscious translation of your mother tongue. Cool what ?
