Classroom objects and indefinite article in French

There are three forms of the French indefinite article. Articles agree in gender and number with the noun they determine. 

un masculine          une feminine         des m or f plural

The indefinite article refers to an unspecified person or thing. 

Ex. J’ai un livre. – I have got a book. => J’ai des livres. – I have got books.
C’est une fille. – This is a girl. => Ce sont des filles. -These are girls.

When referring to a person’s profession, the indefinite is not used in French. 

Ex. Il est acteur. – He is an actor.

Elle est chanteuse. – She is a singer.
