'a' and 'an' what's the difference.

Click to Flip

The answer is ‘an’ because ‘hour’ starts with a vowel sound. In English classes many students are told that they use ‘a’ if the noun starts with a consonant and ‘an’ if the noun starts with a vowel. However, as this example shows, it is about the sound- not simply the letter.
