How to use article A and An – a Poem

  • このエントリーをはてなブックマークに追加

Here’s a poem by one of our teachers, Zahra, to help you remember how to use the articles “a” and “an”.

AN always stands 

in front of a noun,

that has AEIOU

as the vowel sound


AN angry old man 

eats AN egg for lunch,

then he eats AN orange

with a Munch, Munch, Munch.


A stands in front 

of all the other nouns,

all the nouns with

consonant sounds.


A happy old lady

eats A muffin for lunch,

then she eats A carrot

with a Crunch, Crunch, Crunch.
