There is no need to worry about whether a noun is masculine, feminine, or neuter in English. Normally, a noun is preceded by a definite article (THE) or an indefinite article (A, AN) as follows:

DEFINITE ARTICLE

the tourist
the area
the card
the hotel
the restaurant
the people
the signs

INDEFINITE ARTICLE

a tourist
an area
a card
a hotel
a restaurant
some people
some signs

Note that definite articles refer to something specific, while indefinite articles refer to something non-specific. Use an in front of words beginning with vowels and some with plural nouns.
