    their/an English lesson

    Hello, dear users of usingenglish.com.

    In the sentence 'They won't have an English lesson today because their teacher is ill' I put their instead of an.

    1. Can that be considered as correct form?
    2. If I replaced because with as, would that change in meaing for you?

    Thanks, Alex.

    1. Can that be considered as correct form? Yes, but it's better not to repeat their when you have already avoided it.

    2. If I replaced because with as, would that change in meaing for you? No,
