a/ an The indefinite articles in English: 'a' or 'an'

Using "a" or "an" depends on the first SOUND in the word.
- if the first SOUND is a consonant, use "a", e.g. a banana.
- if the first SOUND is a vowel, use "an", e.g. an apple.

Note that the grammar follows the first SOUND.
e.g. a man - an old man...an apple - a red apple.

In Denmark, vowels can be red letters, consonants are blue letters.
a - e - i - o are marked in this table as red vowel letters.
Some letters are tricky: "h", "u" and "y" are coloured purple in the table. LISTEN: vowel or consonant sound?
- an umbrella ("u" with a vowel sound), but a unicorn ("u" with a consonant sound).
- an hour ("u" with a vowel sound), but a horse ("u" with a consonant sound).
- "y" has a consonant sound at the start of a word, unlike Danish. e.g. a yellow coat ("y" with a consonant sound). At the end of a word, "y" has a vowel sound, e.g. "happy".

Also note the SOUND when you say the letters individually:
Open vowel sound: A, E, F, H, I, L, M, N, O, R, S and X
Closed consonant sound: B, C, D, G, J, K, P, Q, T, U, V, W, Y and Z
- "a V", "a vase" (both start with consonant sounds).
- "an F", but "a free turn" (vowel sound/ consonant sound).
