    "A European..."

    The first sound in "European" is a consonant, so we use "a".

    Remember to listen to the sound, not look at the letter.

    Yur is the first sound.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
