penser de

penser de

Why is 'penser a' here, but not 'penser de' (opinion).  Wouldn't it might be good to know that in addition to 'y' for a clause with 'a'; that 'en' for a clause with 'de' is appropriate (and, I think, clearer than just another 'le')?

[Sorry, I can't seem to do the accents, as needed.]

Bonjour Dan,

Please take a look at this lesson on "En can replace de + [phrase] (French Adverbial Pronouns)", which is about your query. 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

The lesson is about y replacing à + noun. How would penser de fit into this lesson??
