The indefinite article

To identify people or things, we use the indefinite article. Here are all indefinite articles in the Spanish language listed in a table:

SingularPlural
masculineun discounos discos
feminineuna fiestaunas fiestas


Un and una are equivalent to the English a or an.
Es un carro.It's a car.
Quiere una bicicleta.He wants a bike.


Unos and unas can be translated into English through 'some', 'a couple', or 'a few':
Aquí hay unos profesores.There are some teachers here.
¿Hay unos estudiantes aquí?Are there a few students here?
Quiere unas tarjetas.I want to buy a couple of cards.


These indefinite articles in their plural forms are often omitted though, like it is also common practice in English:
¿Aquí hay tarjetas en español?Do you have post cards in Spanish?


Finally: To ask, what something is, you say:
¿Qué es esto?What is this?
¿Qué es eso?What is that?


Here are a few things, with which you can answer the questions '¿Qué es esto?' or '¿Qué es eso?'.
