Put "an" before a noun beginning with the letter "u" whenever the resulting noun starts with a vowel sound. The key is the sound. For example, place an before the word "hour".

"An" goes before a word starting with "u" when the sound sounds like the u in "umbrella" - the 'uh' sound - but not before user, university - words with the 'yu' sound. Hope that helps!
