how do you know when to write en and when to write een?

They are different words:

  • en = and
  • een = a / an
  • één = one

En = and, een = a/an, een is also one, but if you use 'een' in an sentence and you want to use it as 'one', then write it as 'één'.

An apple = een appel One apple = één appel
