English does not have a plural indefinite article, but French does. So it’s: un, une, des, as Ripcurlgirl explained.
"Des" is the plural of "un/une". "Du" and "de la" are partitive articles used when referring to undetermined amounts of something.
- le sandwich = the sandwich
- un sandwich = a sandwich
- des sandwichs = sandwiches
- le pain = the bread
- du pain = bread (an undetermined amount)
- la pomme = the apple
- une pomme = an apple
- de la pomme = (some) apple (i.e., an undetermined amount)
