Adjectives Summary

GCSE French

Adjectives describe things, so allow more accurate (and interesting!) communication.

The spelling of adjectives frequently changes depending on the gender of the thing being described. Normally an extra -e is added for feminine words.

Irregular adjectives are a pain - they have entirely different spellings for masculine and feminine words.

Adjectives ending -eux change to -euse in feminine form.

Adjectives used with plurals usually just gain an -s at the end. However, those that end in -al change to -aux.

Adjectives can be positioned before or after the noun, depending on what they are!
