    Thank you

    'such a' is definitely the idiomatic way to say it, Shaci. I'm not sure I've ever heard the other. Did you come across it in an English environment?

    I have never heard it. It is like saying It is this the house I used to live a long time ago. What do you think, Riverkid?

    I've read it from a non-native person who spent a year in the States.
    Thank you for confirming my guess.

    It could be being used with an emphasis on "the", implying that it is the job that is made for you.

    That is absolutely the dress for you to wear at your wedding
