a/an is called indefinite article
* Second: We’re just going to discuss article a and an. How to use them and what’s the difference between them. The similarities between a and an
* "A/an" is used to refer to a non-specific or non-particular member of the group. For example, "I would like to go see a movie." Here, we're not talking about a specific movie. We're talking about any movie. There are many movies, and I don't have a specific one in mind. * A and an are used when talking about profession
For example, "I am a teacher."
The difference in using a or an
Using a or an depends on the sound that begins the next word. Remember, It's the sound that matters, not the spelling. (Lots of people get this wrong - including native speakers.). there are 4 rules in using article a or an *
* use a before + singular noun beginning with a consonant: a boy; a car; a bike; a zoo; a dog * an + singular noun beginning with a vowel: an elephant; an egg; an apple; an idiot; an orphan * a + singular noun beginning with a consonant sound: a user (sounds like 'yoo-zer,' i.e. begins with a consonant 'y' sound, so 'a' is used); * an + nouns starting with silent "h": an hour
Remember that these rules also apply when you use acronyms: I have an LCD tv. 1. She is facing an unusual problem
2. The little child wants to be a unicorn.
3. Brian is an FBI agent.
4. Daniel tried to be an honest person.
Now that we’re finished, I hope that you got what I’ve explained. I’ll see you next time. Thank...
