Adjectives describe or give information about nouns.
The good news is that the form of adjectives does not change, it does not matter if the noun being modified is male or female, singular or plural, subject or object.
Some adjectives give us factual information about the noun - age, size colour etc (fact adjectives - can't be argued with). Some adjectives show what somebody thinks about something or somebody - nice, horrid, beautiful etc (opinion adjectives - not everyone may agree).
Old/Nice/Interesting etc. (adjectives)
A) adjective + noun (nice day / blue eyes etc.)
The adjective is before the noun:
The ending of an adjective is always the same:
B) be (am/is/are etc.) + adjective
C) look/feel/smell/taste/sound + adjective

!Note - In each case the adjective stays the same, whether it is describing a maculine, feminine, singular or plural noun.
When using more than one adjective to modify a noun, the adjectives may be separated by a conjunction (and) or by commas (,).
Adjectives can be used after some verbs. They do not describe the verb, adverbs do that. Adjectives after a verb describe the subject of the verb (usually a noun or pronoun).
