    au = à + le
    ("le" is the definite article that is used before masculine nouns in the singular: le garçon = the boy)

    aux = à + les
    ("les" is the definite article that is used before masculine nouns in the plural: les garçons = the boys)

    du
    1. In "Je vais acheter DU pain," "du" is a partitive article, and it's usually translated as "some" or "any."
    "Je vais acheter du pain" means "I am going to buy some bread."

    2. du = de + le
    (It translates into English as "of the" for masculine nouns in the singular: du garçon = of the boy)

    3. des = de + les
    (It translates into English as "of the" for masculine nouns in the plural: des garçons = of the boys)

    chez
    (It means both "to" and "at")
    chez moi = at my house
    chez moi = to my house

     

    Je vais acheter DU pain CHEZ le boucher qui est AU coin de la rue.

    CHEZ + nom de la personne
    AU / A + lieu
