"Chaque année"

"Chaque année"

I don't understand why we use "année" instead of "an", it seems to me that according to the lesson below, we should be using "an".

An vs année, matin vs matinée, jour vs journée, soir vs soirée to express a time unit or a duration in French

Hi Emre can,

Please take a look at my answer to Heather to a similar question including why we say -

chaque année

and not

chaque an
