when do you use dans for "in" instead of à
Dans is generally used for being inside of something, e.g., a room, a box, etc. But, just to confuse you, it is also used for geographic regions of male gender (e.g., J'habite dans le New Jersey). It's difficult to come up with a general and clear-cut rule.
There are several kwiziq lessons waiting for you that will address the various uses of dans vs à.
