    A or An


    Today we shall learn when to use (a) and when to use (an)

    Let's start with A:

    A is placed in front of almost any singular word starting with a consonant, for example:

    A desk - A chair - A carpet - A white table...

    It is placed in front of almost everything, but it is not placed in front of verbs, vowels or pronouns.


    Now let's go with An:

    An is used in front of almost any singular word starting with a vowel.

    Here are some examples:

    An animal - An elephant - An iguana


    Now choose between A and An before the words in the sentences.

    Good luck!
