Y not En

Y not En

«Nous allons en France tous les ans» . Write "We go there every year": Nous ________ allons tous les ans. The correct answer is "Nous y allons tous les ans." Why does "y" replace "en france" instead of "en."Lesson states: "Y replaces places introduced with prepositions "à, sur, chez, dans."

Hi Drew, 

As stated below and taken from the lesson-

"Notice that to refer to a place previously mentioned in French, you use the pronoun y ('there')."

Hope this helps!
