What about a and an?


Hey, I was talking with one of my friends  who speaks Spanish and is learning English.  She was telling me that in Spanish they have feminine and masculine nouns.  I don’t remember which ones she said, so sorry if these are backwards but lets say for example that a book is masculine and a pencil is feminine.  So they put un for the masculine and unA for the feminine.  And I was like, we don’t have that in English.   But later, I was thinking about A versus AN like a book. ... Sorry, I can’t think of another example for an right now, but sometimes we use that.  I KNOW it is not masculine or feminine, but why do we change them?  When should we use an?
