You use "location" (http://nginx.org/r/location) and "rewrite"
(http://nginx.org/r/rewrite) with the "break" flag.

Based on the documentation, I guess that you will want to include within
your "/en/" location, some configuration which tells nginx how you want
php requests to be handled.

You left out some useful information:

* what request do you make?
* what response do you get?
* what response do you want?
