1. Hay dos artículos indefinidos singulares en inglés (a, an) que funcionan como las dos formas españoles (un, una).

1.1. Por ejemplo:

1.1.1. - A chair. (una silla) - An apple. (una manzana) - I bought. a car (Compré un coche) - She saw an elephant. (Vio a un elefante ) - They have an idea. Tienen una idea. -Do you have a pen? (¿Tienes un bolígrafo?)

1.2. No existen artículos indefinidos en plural en inglés. No podemos decir a chairs (una sillas) o an apples (una manzanas). Para poder decir "unas sillas" o "unas manzanas" (de forma indefinida) tendremos que usar otro tipo de determinantes, como some o any.
