Which is correct
I met a European or I met an European
Because we shud use an before words starting with vowels right?

Dear student,
The correct answer will be I met a European. 
 ‘e’ stands for several vowel and consonant sounds - pen, set, men, lesson (one kind of vowel sound), given, person (another kind of vowel sound; meet seen, meal ( the long /e/ sound), We will hear (if you hear carefully) two different /e/ sounds in even, elephant, enter, elevate. ‘e’ also stands for the consonant sound/yu/ in European, ewe, eunuch, eulogy. Since these words have an initial consonant sound, we have to use the indefinite article ‘a’, not an.
