In the lessons/exercises, it is never really made clear when to use which form, and the examples seem somewhat inconsistent in terms of the sentences presented and in terms of what is marked as correct and incorrect. I thought at first it had maybe to do with the number of people involved, but that wasn't the case. Since both forms were used without the word limba in the sentence, I still have no clue when the word should end with "a" and when it should end in "ă". Any help would be appreciated!

limba engleză means : The English language(tongue), english as I understand it is an adjective in this context. engleză/engleza is just the usual indefinite/definite article declension for English(language) just like fată/fata etc..
