Morgane told you about "en" as a preposition, but as a pronoun I used to say "en" is a contraction of "de + pronoun", each time "de" is used in French .
I speak of that = J'en parle . En means "de cela " .
I come from there = j'en viens . En means "de là " .
You don't know anything about it = tu n'en sais rien . En means "de cela" .
I saw three of them = J'en ai vu trois . En means "of them" .
I want some = j'en veux . En means "de ça", I want (some) "of that" .
En can be a preposition to ( I live in England = Je vis en Angleterre) but it's another question .
As a pronoun, remember : "en" always means " de + pronoun", any pronoun .Source(s): I'm French

en could be an adverbe: origine, where something is from!
Il en vient. he comes from. --> from there
"en" could be a preposition: it could indicate the place, the situation, the manner/way, the transformation, the duration. -->in, to, from, by, on, at, of, while
ex: She transforms the frog INTO prince. Elle transforme la grenouille EN prince.
it could be a "Pronom personnel": --> it
"Tu n'en sais rien"
i hope it could hep you! sorry if i am not clear!Source(s): Native language

Most often it means "of it" or "of them", or "from it" or "from them". It is usually replacing an expression using "de".
