    When referring to professions, religions or nationality the article 'un' is dropped, so 'Soy doctor'

    RULE: The article is NOT needed when referring to professions. 1) Soy profesor. Ella es secretaria. (No articles)

    Exception: if the sentence includes a "que" clause , then the article is required: 2) Juan es "un" medico que trabaja cada dia.
