I've been told that if the town/city begins with a vowel the 'à' changes to 'en'. Is that right?

This question relates to:
French lesson "J'habite à [city] = I live in [city]"

Bonjour Anne ! I'm afraid you're mixing two different lessons :) To say "in/to" + city, you always use "à", regardless of spelling. But it's a different matter when it comes to countries, or regions/states... Here are links to our related lessons: https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/use-en-with-feminine-countries-and-aux-with-masculine-countries-to-say-in-or-to-prepositions https://french.kwiziq.com/revision/grammar/prepositions-with-regions-states-counties I hope it helps! À bientôt !
