There are three articles in English language -- a, an and the.

We use 'a' when the noun we are referring to begins with a consonant (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k, l, m, n, p, q, r, s, t, v, w, x, y or z).
Examples: "a city" and "a factory"

We use 'an' when the noun we are referring to begins with a vowel (a, e, i, o, u) and also when the noun does not begin with a vowel, but still has a beginning vowel sound.
Examples: an owl, an apple, an Indian, an hour

We use 'the' when we know that the listener knows or can work out what particular person/thing we are talking about. We also use 'the' when we have already mentioned the thing that we are talking about.
Examples: the planets, the city, the teacher

Directions: Write the articles that complete these sentences correctly (answers are case sensitive!). On a sheet of paper, write ten more example sentences using each of the three articles. As a homework, read a book and find and write ten sentences using each of the three articles.
