Musculine countries

Musculine countries

At the beginning of the lesson, it is written that "En, au and aux" are used for countries, which I'm fine with, but later on it also says that "En, dans la and dans l' " are also to be used with countries. (Regions, states and countries) My question is, if I wanna say that I'm going to a musculine country and I have both Dans le / Dans l' and Au, which one do I use? I'm so confused!

Hi Maya, 

If you want to say that you are going to a masculine country you will use 'au' -

Je vais au Maroc

Je vais au Portugal

Je vais au Gabon 

Je vais au Pays de Galles

 

etc.

Hope this helps!

Counties, not countries

Careful: the lesson you link to refers to "counties" NOT countries.
