GRAMMAR TIP:What Is Indefinite Article?
An indefinite article indicates that its noun is not a particular one (or ones) identifiable to the listener. It may be something that the speaker is mentioning for the first time, or its precise identity may be irrelevant or hypothetical, or the speaker may be making a general statement about any such thing. English uses a/an, from the Old English forms of the number 'one', as its indefinite article. The form an is used before words that begin with a vowel sound (even if spelled with an initial consonant, as in an hour), and a before words that begin with a consonant sound (even if spelled with a vowel, as in a European). Example: She had a house so large that an elephant would get lost without a map.

which has a great activity for older students. Students listen to a song by Lily Allen and complete the worksheet. Honestly students will probably have to rely more on their understanding of articles than on their listening skills because the song is very fast paced.
