Isn't an european correct? Please send me all this exception, because I really need to Know it...

From member: Dani in Brazil


Answer

In some cases it is the pronunciation of the word that determines if we use 'a' or 'an'.
A European, a university
Others that follow this exception are words like X-Ray, an x-ray, 'an FBI agent'
Words with a silent 'h' ('h' aspirate) usually take 'an' - 'an hotel'.
