You will use "an" whenever the first letter of the noun is a vowel such as "an umbrella". You will use "a" when the first letter of the noun is a consonant like "a car"

they used an in "an honest" because the pronunciation is "onest" (silent h) so it's like the o is the first letter. they used a in "a university" because the rule says that the word that sounds like "yoo" should start with "a". university sounds like "yoo-ni-ver-sity"
not just "yoo" but any y-consonant sounds.
a european why using a not an ?
because European sounds like "yoo-ro-pean" you don't say "e-uro-pean"
You will use "an" in a sentence if the first letter of the noun is vowel and if the first syllable is pronounced as vowel. Example: "an honor". You will use "a" in a sentence if the noun's first letter is consonant and if the pronouncation of the first syllable starts with a consonant letter. Example: "a university"
