The indefinite article is what we call the word a in English. The indefinite article is used with nouns in English (a book, a chair, a door etc.). To get started in Serbian, pick just 3 important nouns. We suggest you learn the nouns knjiga, stolica and vrata (book, chair, door). Once you have learned these nouns, you can then learn how to use each noun with the indefinite article. This is easy in Serbian, because in Serbian, there is no indefinite article. So the word knjiga can mean book or a book, the word stolica can mean chair or a chair and the word vrata can mean door or a door.
