Ciao, In lesson 9.1, Maria says the following: _"Dunque io Le consiglierei almeno un veicolo categoria B, vale a dire *una* famigliare del genere Renault Laguna o Volkswagen Passat."_ I would have expected to see a "un" here (instead of "una"), on the assumption that it refers to "veicolo" as follows: _"... un veicolo categoria B, vale a dire una famigliare del genere ..." = "... a category B *vehicle*, that's to say a family *one* of the type ..."_ Am I missing something here? Grazie in anticipo, Mike

Ciao Mike, the word "famigliare" which comes from "famiglia" is feminine. Therefore the article you should use in front of it should be "una". If you use the noun "veicolo" you will need to use the article "un". I hope this helps! All the best for your Italian learning. :)
