A small typo noticed
In the sentence from the lesson which reads-
“Vous allez aux Etats-Unis.” Here the acute accent on ‘E’ is missing . Should it not be as “États-Unis”?
This question relates to:French lesson "Using en with feminine countries and au(x) with masculine countries to say in or to (prepositions)"

Bonjour Varsha !
Actually in French, when it comes to capital letters, accents are not compulsory, and both cases are perfectly valid :) Thus, you can write either "les États-Unis" or "les Etats-Unis"!Talk about confusing learners!
However, I will add the accent here for the sake of avoiding extra confusion ;)
I hope that's helpful!Bonne journée !
Merci Beaucoup Madame Aurélie.
