When do I use "am" vs. "an"?

An changes to am before labial consonants: B, P, F, M. It is explained in the tips and notes to the Food 2 skill. The tips and notes are available in the web browser version of Duolingo (go to the https://duolingo.com website) – unfortunately they aren’t present in the mobile app. You can also read them on the duome.eu website.

Ah, bottle as in for the milk! The lesson had me thinking of alcohol all through, so suddenly this juxtaposition seemed a recipe for disaster!
