Grammar Point: Noun agreement

All Spanish nouns are classified as either masculine or feminine. Make sure the determiner (e.g.: el, la, un, una) matches the noun for gender, e.g.: since the word for "thing" (cosa) is feminine, you need to write una cosa ("a thing"), not un cosa (note that the noun's ending isn't always a good indication of gender, e.g.: un problema).
 
There is also agreement in terms of singular and plural, e.g.: las cosas = "the things". You can learn more about noun agreement here.
