The indefinite articles “a” and “an” are used with singular countable nouns when we mention something or someone for the first time. “A” is used before consonants and “an” – before vowels. We use “the” if it’s clear for a listener what thing or person we talk about. We don’t use an article with the names of cities or countries. But we say the USA. (We use “the” with the names of countries which have the words like states, republic, kingdom, or union)
New York is a city. (a + noun)
New York is big.(adjective)
New York is a big city. (a + adjective + noun)

He has an umbrella. (an + noun which starts with the vowel “u”)
