  2. 2. USE OF ADJECTIVES TO DESCRIBRE NOUNS My name isYeimy Alexandra López. I am an English teacher. Today, we will learn to use adjectives when describing nouns. Adjectives are words which tell us something about nouns, that is about a person, an animal, a thing or a place. They usually come before the nouns they describe.
  3. 3. EXAMPLES:  The girl is beautiful  That snake is ugly  Mike is tall  Jhon is short  Itis a big red chair  The bag is small and old  It is a French table  Peter is thin and strong
  4. 4.  An adjective describes how something 'is'. For this reason, we usually use the verb 'to be' when using adjectives.  Example:  Maryis an intelligent woman.  The students are very talkative.  I am not too strong.
  5. 5.  Adjectives don't have a singular and plural form OR a masculine, femine and neuter form: EXAMPLE: They are very intelligent students. Karen is tall and thin.  Adjectives are always the same! Never add a final -s to an adjective. EXAMPLE: A big white cat. It is a big new house.
