The Indefinite Article

Welcome! Sorry, it has been a while since I've left everyone a blog.  Here's a quick lesson on the indefinite article: 

In English, we have the following indefinite articles: a (as in a cat), an (as in an ostrich), and some (as in some lettuce). 

Spanish indefinite articles depend on whether or not the noun is masculine or feminine, and whether or not the noun is plural or singular.  Therefore, there are 4 forms of the indefinite article that are used in Spanish (since a noun is either singular masculine, singular feminine, plural masculine, or plural feminine. 

Tengo un carro.  I have a car.  

Ella tiene una idea.  She has an idea.  

Nosotros tenemos unos problemas.  We have some problems (remember that "problema" is a masculine word in Spanish) 

Vosotros tenéis unas dificultades.  You all are having some difficulties.
