Use the indefinite article a / an before singular count nouns. Use a before consonant sounds, and use an before vowel sounds.
Be careful of words that start with h or u. Some words that begin with these two letters start with a vowel sound and some start with a consonant sound.
For words that start with h, we use a when the h is pronounced, and we use an when the h is silent.
For words that begin with u, we use a when the u is pronounced as a consonant, and an when the u is pronounced as a vowel.
