Hello, Sil, and welcome to the Grammar Exchange.

Soon we're leaving , so can you get your bags ready?

we're soon leaving , so can you get your bags ready?

The only natural, normal position position for "soon" in that sentence is after "leaving." With "will be leaving" instead of "are leaving," the positions of "soon" in the other two sentences would also work. All of these work:

  • We will be leaving soon, so can you get your bags ready?
  • Soon we will be leaving, so can you get your bags ready?
  • We will soon be leaving, so can you get your bags ready?

Please remember that the first word of a sentence should be capitalized.
