How to use adjectives in French: Adjectives are found almost always __________________ the noun they are describing. Exemples: C’est une fille intelligente. C’est un garçon amusant. Ce sont des films stupides.
In French, adjectives always agree with the _________________ they describe. If the noun is feminine we add an _________ to the adjective describing it. Une chemise verte Une étudiante intelligente
Plural & Feminine If the noun is plural we add an ___________ to the adjective describing it. Les sweats noirs. Les élèves américains. An exception- If the noun is both feminine and plural, we must add an _____ & and ______. Les filles blondes.
Memory Unfortunately, there is no way to know if an object in French is masculine or feminine without memorizing it or looking it up However, it will shorten the process if you memorize the endings that change: An adjective that ends in an F like “sportif” becomes IVE in feminine form “sportive.” An adjective that ends in X like “heureux” becomes EUSE in feminine form “heureuse”
Colours Colours are our most common adjective! You have already used them while describing your hair and eyes.
