To use articles correctly, you need to understand the difference between countable and uncountable nouns (sometimes called mass nouns). Read the post to discover which is correct, ‘some advice’ or ‘an advice’?
The articles a, an and the often cause problems. It can sometimes seem impossible to use them correctly, especially if they don’t work the same way in your own language. But don’t worry – this article will show you how to use articles in English.
How do we know the difference between a and an? We use a before a consonant sound and an before a vowel sound.
Note that I said sound, not letter of the alphabet! This is something that confuses many students.
