The rules:

  • En is a pronoun that typically replaces de + a noun; this includes nouns introduced by partitive or indefinite determiners (de, du, de l’, de la, des). En may be translated as ‘some’, ‘any’, or ‘not any’.
  • En also can replace a noun introduced by a number or an expression of quantity.
  • En also replaces expressions introduced by the preposition de with the following verbs: s’occuper de (to deal with), parler de (to speak of), remercier de (to thank for), revenir de (to return from), venir de (to come from).
