  • In this video, I'm gonna talk to you about adjectives order in a sentence using more than one

  • adjective to modify a noun.

  • because if you use more than one adjective to modify a noun,

  • you have to follow a specific order, so you need to keep watching.

  • Let's get started.

  • Let's take a look at this adjective order.

  • It looks like a lot at first, but you will learn very fast and practice will help.

  • Let's have a look together.

  • First, we will use the adjectives describing quality or giving your opinion.
