comment Are there any simple rules for choosing the definite vs. indefinite (vs. none) article?
You'll have to pour beer to get him a beer. Two senses: the first is a mass noun (uncountable) and the second is a serving (mug, glass, etc) of the liquid material, and servings are countable.

comment What is the difference between 'make decision' and 'take decision'?
This may well be right for British English. Take a decision is not used in American English, though, and is likely to be confusing to Americans without much exposure to British English.
