A vs. An

Recursos

Se usa “a” antes de las palabras que tienen un sonido consonante. Se usa “an” antes de las palabras que comienza con un sonido vocal:

  • A mechanic
  • An apple
  • A doctor
  • An economist

Importante. Es el sonido de la palabra que le sigue la que determina si se usa A o An. No se trata de que la palabra inicie en vocal o no.

Por ejemplo.

A university. En este caso, aunque University comienza en vocal su sonido es similar a “yours”

An hour. En este caso, la “h” es muda, por tal motivo se usa “an” en lugar de “a”.

Principales usos de A y AN

Los usos principales de a y an son:

1. Identificar que se trata de una sola cantidad de algo (singular):

  • I need a car.
  • I want an apple.

2. Delante de las profesiones:

  • She’s an actress.
  • He’s a photographer.

A honest or an honest person…chaN chan chan

ANSWER: a HONEST

A vs An

We use A and An when we want to talk about something general or that it’s not particular or very specific.

An: When the next word starts with a vowel.

A: When the next word starts with a consonant sound.

It’s the sound and not the letter, because we have some exceptions

  • We say a University, because the “u” sounds like “your”
  • We say an Hour, because the “h” is silent.

There is a black marker on the table.

  • She’s reading an old book.
  • She is a a pilot.
  • See you in an hour.
  • I don’t have time for a movie tonight.
  • Rachel works at an hospital.

Excepciones:

    ● An honest person
