To practise using indefinite articles “un, une, des” in context.
An indefinite article is a word used to designate an object which is not specific.
In French, the indefinite articles agree in gender and number with the noun they qualify. Therefore, they are:
· un (masculine singular) - un chat (a cat)
· une (feminine singular) - une maison (a house)
· des (plural) - des pommes (apples)
Words ending in -e and -tion are mostly feminine. Words not ending in -e are therefore masculine. However there are many exceptions such as words in -age, -isme which are masculine.
Please learn the article with the word when you learn a new word as a way to associate straightaway the gender to the noun.
