Rules to place the adjective before and after the nouns
• The general rule for adjective placement in French is the opposite of English, meaning that adjectives will normally go after the noun.
Ex: a blue car = une voiture bleue
• There are some exceptions to this rule and they can be remembered by the acronym BANGS
• Number can also include the adjectives first (premier/première), second (deuxième), etc.
Ex: Il est le premier magasin au droit.
It is the first store on the right.
• It is important to place the adjective correctly because there are some adjectives whose meanings will change from a literal to a figurative sense depending on their placement.
