Use of the form ‘a’ and ‘an’
In English, there are two indefinite articles: ‘a’ and ‘an’. We use ‘a’ before words that start with a consonant sound for example: a window, a bed, a uniform, etc. Then, we use ‘an’ with words that begin with a vowel sound for example: an owl, an ogre, an hour, etc.
Consonants are letters (or sounds) that are not vowels (a, e, i, o, u). For example j, d and z are all consonants.
Carefully read through the lesson presentation information before starting today’s activity.
