Improving Grammar with Tanya and Dan

My dear friends! Being a professional teacher of English grammar, I decided to start this group to help you improve your knowledge of the subject. Many members asked me to do it and I do feel like that! So, I am planning to start a few discussions where you will be able to ask me questions or to have some practice. I'd also like to involve my husband, a native speaker, who is supposed to be helpful. So, how do you feel about such a group?

Dear Simran! Using A or AN depends on the first SOUND of the word, but not its first letter. When we say MA it sounds like [em ei]. The first sound is vowel. That is why we say and write an MA. But B is pronounced like [bi], the first sound is consonant. So, it must be A B....

But, let me ask what do you mean by B.com? A Bachelor degree?

Hello dear teacher
we use 'an' article in following sentence that is right-
she is an MA.
is the following sentence is also right-
she is an B.com.
