Quand est-ce qu'on utilise "dans" et quand est-ce qu'on utilise "en"? En anglais, c'est le meme chose.
Here's something that may interest you: French prepositions en vs. dans

Basically, dans always = in. It is really used to locate in something/somewhere, or in a figurative location as in expressions like "i'm in big shit", in some others expressions like "in life" = "dans la vie", or before time when you indicate the time before something occurs like in "in ___ (from now)", "in two hours" (not like "en" which is just simply used to indicate the time when something happened/will happen in the past or the future when used before time...there's a little nuance there...) etc...
But everything is better explained there: French preposition "dans"

Re: Leçons de français!! (18+ ONLY)

For "en", it's a bit more complicated since it can be either a preposition or an adverbial pronoun...
Everything explained here about "en" as a pronoun: Adverbial pronouns "en" & "y"
And here, all the uses of "en" as a preposition are indicated (location, time, to translate like or as, before means, to indicate a condition or appearance, material, and to indicate a transformation...): French preposition "en"

I really hope that will help you Silverwhite. I'm not good at explaining things...
Good luck for your French exam!
I get back to school in a few days... /

Thanks, Delsa! It's the time part where I have problems.

I just did it because i though it might help and because it really didn't take me a lot of time but that doesn't fascinates me either so i don't think i'll cary on...

I finished the uni 4 years ago , but I'm still doing post-graduate courses (the last one was about phisotherapy in sports).
