Articles – ‘a an the’ Pack 3

Articles – ‘a an the’ Pack 3

A and AN are both indefinite articles and they have the same meaning,

The rule is really very simple. It depends on the sound at the beginning of the next word. It is the sound that matters, not the spelling.

When do we use ‘a’?

‘A’ is used before the words that begin with a consonant.

When do we use ‘an?’

‘AN’ is used before the words that begin with a vowel sound.

‘The’ is the definite article. It is definite because it is referring to a specific thing. Examples:

I climbed the huge tree in our garden today.

The cat is relaxing on the couch.
