Every verb requires a certain preposition to convey the right meaning. We say "leave for", but we do not say "
|leave to". I had a teacher that used to tell us that we all have a dictionay in our brains. In that dictionary, every verb was automatically linked to a certain preposition. The problem is that when we learn a new language, dictionary entries change, and it takes some time (and some effort) for them to make sense for the new learner.
