Lesson 13: Clothes

Consumers shopping for clothes


Practice by reading the dialogue with your tutor. After you are done, switch roles and do it again! πŸ“˜

  • D: I am wearing a blouse and skirt. What are you wearing? πŸ“˜
  • K: I am wearing jeans and a polo shirt. πŸ“˜
  • D: Make sure you wear a jacket. Β πŸ“˜

We use A/AN with: πŸ“˜

Singular nouns and the first time we refer to a person, animal or thing. πŸ“˜

  • a child
  • an elephant
  • a television


What is the difference between A and AN? πŸ“˜

A is used when the next word begins with a consonant sound (b, c, d, f, g, h, j, k etc). πŸ“˜

  • a book
  • a table
  • a clock
  • a university (because the beginning of university sounds like YOU-niversity)


AN is used when the next word begins with a vowel sound (a, e, i, o, u). πŸ“˜

  • an apple
  • an elephant
  • an umbrella
  • an hour (because the H is silent)




Go over the vocabulary and expressions below with your tutor. πŸ“˜
