En/Au + country

In English, it’s simple, you’re going TO Brasil and you’re going TO China. But in French …. it’s not that simple ! Once you’ll know the rule you’ll find it easy.

En + feminine            Au + masculine

Example:

‘Je vais en Chine’ → La Chine = feminine             ‘Je vais au Brésil’ → Le Brésil = masculine

Some countries like ‘Espagne’ (Spain) or ‘Inde’ (India) which article is “l'” are with ‘en’

Example:

Je vais en Espagne. (L’Espagne)            Je vais en Inde. (L’Inde)

Easy right ?
