I am currently trying to relearn the little French I learnt in primary school (and improve on it). One of the first things to learn is saying where you're from and I watched this video that made me curious about the gender of my country (I figured being an African country the spelling wouldn't really change). I used google translate to translate "I live in Kenya" and the result was "je vis au kenya" ... I was expecting something along the lines of "J'habite..."
What is the difference between the two and which one is the best one to use?
