Average: 3.7 (19 votes)

Do you know where to put the adjective in a sentence? Follow these simple rules to help you remember:

1. The adjective comes before the noun.
"I live in a small house."
"I have a blue umbrella."

2. The adjective comes after the verb 'to be'.
"I am very tired. "
"Careful, the food is hot!"

It's also important to remember that in English the adjective doesn't change for plural nouns. That makes things much easier!
"Those houses are beautiful. "
"We are really happy. "
