Here are the general rules to say your are in a place, or going to a place in French.

•Places ending in “E” = feminine = use “en”

-Je suis en France.

•Places ending in any other vowel = masculine = use “au”

-Je vais au Canada, je suis au Congo.

•Places ending in a consonant = masculine = use “au”

-Je vais au Japon.

•Places ending in “S” are usually masculine, but not always. Use “aux”

-Je vais aux États-Unis.

•Use “en” + places starting with a vowel or a mute h (no matter whether they are feminine or masculine)

-Je vais en Iran, je vais en Éthiopie.

•Use à + cities.

-Je suis à Paris.

This is great! You can can also au and aux (the plural of au) to signifie to: Je donne l'argent au pauvre (I give money to one poor person) Je donne l'argent aux pauvres (I give money to the poor (in general)

thank you so so much
