    The first time you speak of something use "a or an"(indefinite article), the next time you repeat that object use "the"(definite article).

    I live in a house. The house is quite old and has four bedrooms.

    I ate in a Chinese restaurant. The restaurant was excellent.

    Article use is very difficult for English learners to master. This is particularly true if one's own language doesn't use articles. I suggest that you search Google for "definite article" "english grammar". Read a number of the sites. Then come back if you have specific questions.

    There are many short rules, but there are also many exceptions.
