Which would be correct usage :

1. A unique

2. An Unique

and why ?

Cheers !

I'm not surprised people find this confusing though. It must be awful if you are not sure how to pronounce such a word.

I can remember being taught the misleading rule 'a for consonants and an for vowels' at school but luckily as native speakers we'd already learnt the real rule before we had to start writing.
