How to differentiate between à and dans when both mean 'to'?

(For location other than countries, cities, continents, regions, states, etc) Like going 'to' a market, school, or some other place

This relates to:
En vs dans with locations (prepositions) -

Hi Joan,


Did you really mean "à" and "dans"? Because "dans" means "in" and "à" can assume a lot of meanings but "in" isn't normally one of them. From the lesson you are referring to, could it be that you mean "en" and "dans"?


If I go to the lesson page of the one you refer to and scroll all the way down to the bottom I find a whole lot of posts dealing with this issue. Does any one of them speak to the question you have? If not, can you post an example which gives you a problem?
