How do you tell when In should translate to En, Au or Dans?

When you speak about a country, you will use "au" if this country is Masculin and "en" if it is féminin or if it starts with a vowel or a H :

  • au Japon

  • au Brésil

  • Aux Royaumes-Unis

  • En France

  • En Irak

  • En Hongrie

  • ...

And how do you know if the country is Masculin or Feminin? .... I have bad news, there is no rule, you have to learn it :/

Should this also accept "Des gens..."? "Les gens" would seem to mean "All the people", which is not true (though that doesn't matter in the sense of whether a sentence can be used by Duo). Would "Des gens" translate to "People" as in "(Some) people"?

Her pronunciation of Cameroon is horrible. Can't you fix that?

I've encountered sentences where th "le" in "le français" is omitted, whereas "le" in this sentence is necessary. What is the rule for its usage?
