    need some help with this:

    hi, can u help me understand this:
    Question #: 1: She's at an university in the north of the country.
    User's answer: True
    Correct answer:
    False
    Additional Notes: We use a before a consonant sound and an before a vowel sound. Here, the word starts with a consonant sound
    I don't understand why is false, since "university" begins with a vowel (u).
    Please explain... thaks !

    "University" begins with a vowel, not a vowel sound.
