Using the pronoun ‘en’ correctly

 

 

A lot of English speaking people do struggle with the use of French pronoun ‘en’.

If this grammar point is still unclear to you, I can give you a few tips to help you.

Grammar may not be your cup of tea, but, first of all, you MUST remember the signification of the word ‘pronoun’.

What is a pronoun? A pronoun is a words that comes in replacement of the noun-in order to avoid repetition.

This is where ‘en’, for instance, comes into play.

There are also three important points to remember:

  • ‘en’ is mostly used with partitives.

-Vous mangez de la salade?

-Oui, j’en mange.

-Vous reprendrez bien encore un peu de fromage?-

-Oui, j’en reprendrai.

  • ‘en’  is also needed for expressed quantities.

             – Il y a combien de chaises dans cette pièce?

-Il y en a trois.

  • ‘en’ is very much used with constructions with ‘de’

-Vous rêvez de partir en vacances?

-Oui, j’en rêve.

And finally always remember that ‘en’ comes before your verb.

Il y a beaucoup de neige en ce moment. Il y en a beaucoup.
