The indefinite articles (French: les articles indéfinis) vaguely determine the noun that follows them.
The French grammar has three indefinite articles:
The indefinite articles in French are un for masculine and une for feminine nouns. These articles are rather used for random persons, things or ideas than for a specific group of things.
un monsieur (A mister)
une dame (A lady)
des enfants (Children)
des touristes (Tourists)
Please bear in mind that des can mean different things in English, depending on the sentence. In most cases however, some is often the best word to use.
Please note that the indefinite article can be used as a numeral word (un monsieur attend encore, deux autres sont partis).
