We know that in English "uma montanha" is always "a mountain", right?  "Um" and "uma" are translated "a" or "an"  Right?.

Well, not always. 

"One" is often used for emphasis in colloquial English.

That is one beautiful car!
She is one cute babe!
Whitney is one big mountain.
She made one delicious cake.
We took one difficult exam this morning.
