Sorry - pressed enter and posted too soon :-) So, you say... Il est en Angleterre maintenant = He's in England now. Yet Elle est à New York = She is in New York I can't see the difference! They are both IN somewhere. Thanks

Bonjour Janice, This is just a particularity of French: you need à with cities, but au or en with countries, depending on their gender.
