Hello Robledo,

When choosing between 'a' and 'an', think about the sound, not the letter. 

Compare the pronunciation of 'university'  with 'umbrella'. They're not the same, right?

The 'u' in 'university' sounds like a 'y' (phonetic alphabet: /j/). This is not a vowel sound, so: a yo-yo, a young man, a yellow bag , a university.

The 'u' in 'umbrella' is a vowel sound, so: an umbrella.
