  • Hi, everybody.

  • In this video, we're going to talk about adjectives.

  • Now, we use adjectives to describe nouns or things.

  • Okay, we can describe its size, its color, its shape or other things like that.

  • Okay.

  • So let's take a look at the board.

  • The first noun we're going to use is 'marker'.

  • It's a marker.”

  • Now, I want to use an adjective to describe the color.

  • I'm going to say, “It's a 'black' marker.”

  • 'Black' is the adjective.

  • Now notice, I have to put the adjective after the article 'a', but before the noun 'marker'.

  • It's a black marker.”

  • Now, I can use another adjective to describe its size.

  • It's a long marker.”

  • Okay.

  • Let's try the next one.

  • Here we have a bird.

  • So, “It's a bird.”

  • Okay.

  • I want to use another adjective to describe the color.

  • So, I'm going to say, “It's a blue bird.”

  • Again, you have to put the adjective after the article, before the noun.

  • I can also describe its size.

  • It's a small bird.”

  • 'Small' is another adjective.

  • Now, at the last part, we have some apples.

  • Three apples.

  • Okay, remember, when we have more than one noun, it's called a plural noun.

  • So, we have to say, “They're apples.”, with an 's'.

  • They're apples.”

  • I want to use the adjective 'red' to describe the color of these apples.

  • So, I'm going to say, “They're red apples.”

  • Okay.

  • Here, there's no article.

  • There's no 'a'.

  • That's because there's more than one.

  • They're red apples.”

  • So, I just have to put the adjective before the noun that it's describing.

  • They're red apples.”

  • Okay, let's move on to some more examples.

  • Okay. Now we're going to practice asking and answering questions using adjectives.

  • Okay.

  • So, we have a man here.

  • I want to ask, “Is he a small man?”

  • Okay.

  • We have the adjective 'small'.

  • Notice, even in a question,

  • we have to put the adjective after the article and before the noun.

  • Is he a small man?”

  • Well, let's take a look at this picture.

  • The answer is, “No, he's a _____ man.”

  • We need another adjective.

  • He's not a small man.

  • So, we have to sayNo, he's a…

  • big man.”

  • Okay.

  • We're going to use the adjective 'big'.

  • Okay, let's look at the next one.

  • Is it a _____ table?”

  • The answer isYes, it is.”

  • We need an adjective to describe color, shape or size or something.

  • Well, we can't really describe the color.

  • So, I think we should try the shape.

  • Okay.

  • Well, “Is it a….

  • round table?”

  • And the answer isYes, it is.”

  • Okay, and last, we have two dresses.

  • Okay. So that means the noun is plural.

  • In that case, for the questions, we begin with 'are'.

  • Are they red dresses?”

  • Okay, the adjective is 'red'.

  • But, “Are they red dresses?”

  • No, they're

  • blue dresses.”

  • Okay.

  • No, they'reblue dresses.”

  • Okay.

  • So, in this video, we learned about adjectives.

  • I hope you guys understand.

  • And I'll see you in the next video.

  • Bye.
