Clever! Unlike English adjectives, most descriptive adjectives in French FOLLOW the noun they modify.
une porte secrète
les vins blancs
Some short descriptive adjectives that usually precede the noun are:
beau (B for beauty)
jeune/vieux (A for age)
dernier/premier/plusieurs (N for number)
bon (G for goodness)
grand/petit/gros (S for size)
But there are others as well:
tout (precedes the article = toute la maison)
Then there are adjectives that have two or more meanings, depending upon the position (after or before)
Sra (aka M me)
There are masculine forms, feminine forms, and plural forms as well right?
Absolutely! A good dictionary will help you. Take for example: bon
bon = masculine singular
bonne = feminine singular
bons = masculine plural
bonnes = feminine plural
beau = masculine singular
bel = masculine singular before a vowel (a, e, i, o, u)
belle = feminine singular
beaux = masculine plufal
belles = feminine plural
Sra (aka Mme)
