I'm reading the book, La Belle et La Bête, and I saw une année passe. Why does it use année instead of an?
"When we consider that part of the day or this day or year in its duration, when we emphasise the length of time, we use the feminine forms: une année (a year), la journée (the day), la matinée (the morning), la soirée (the evening)."
The above copied and pasted from the lesson you quoted -- I cannot improve on that.
