This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

  1. a and an are indefinite articles, not prepositions.

  2. You use the one that makes sense when you read the phrase out loud. In this case, you use a because European is pronounced as if it begins with a consonant (sounding like y as in yellow) and not as if it begins with a vowel.
