    I leave for Paris tomorrow

    Please, explain the difference between two sentences: I leave for Paris tomorrow. I'm leaving for Paris tomorrow. Is the first one correct?

    Re: I leave for Paris tomorrow

    Both the simple present and present continuous can be used for expressing future action, but each should be used with a/the time frame.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Please note that I have changed your thread title. Titles should include some/all of the actual words, phrases or sentences you are asking us about.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    It's extremally extremely useful. Note the correct spelling. If you set the spellchecker in your browser to English, it will highlight spelling errors so you can correct them before you post.
    Please see my corrections and comments above.

    Note that, in future, there is no need to write a post to say "Thanks" to anyone. Simply click on the "Thank" button on the relevant post. It saves time for everyone.
