"For pronunciation reasons, you will use en with masculine countries starting with a vowel" yet États-Unis is using aux. Is that only because it is plural?
I guess the point is that there is no issue with pronunciation when using aux, because the 'x' will be pronounced as 'z'.
The United States of America is 'Les États-Unis d'Amérique' in French so you would say -
Je vais aux État-Unis le mois prochain = I am going to the United States next month.
Hope this helps!
Oh, I didn't think about the liaison. I'm never sure when there is one and when there isn't since it seems like there frequently isn't and I haven't found a rule for it. Thank you Alan and Cécile.
