Learn about adjective order in English with this lesson. When you use several adjectives with a noun in English, the adjectives have to go in a specific order. For example, we say “strong black Italian coffee,” but you can’t say “strong Italian black coffee” or “Italian black strong coffee.”

Why not? Because of the adjective order rules.

You can see the full lesson (which includes the text and a quiz to help you practice) here:

Contents:
Rule #1: Opinions go first and facts go second 1:57
Rule #2: General ideas go before specific ideas 3:30
The full rule: 5:21

The basic rules for adjective order are:

– Opinions go before facts
– General ideas go before specific ideas

There’s also a more complicated rule, which you’ll see in the video.

You can learn more about these adjective order rules and how to use them in the video lesson.
