    ordering and formation of adjectives

    Hi everyone,

    Does somebody know where I can get some exercises on the formation and/or order of adjectives on the web. I'd like to exercise myself constructing the sentences in English and then translating them into French.

    Thank you for you help.

    Re: ordering and formation of adjectives

    The order of adjectives is a grammatical topic of the recommended FCE preparation syllabus; therefore most coursebooks contain a chapter devoted to it, not only with some good exercises, but also with a generous amount of explanation.

    I'm not sure whether you can get hold of some FCE coursebooks; if so, please check 'First Certificate Gold' or 'Think First Certificate'.

    Good luck!

    Go to your search engine and do a search under Royal Order of Adjectives. There's a great page at webster commnet.

    Bye,
    Hela
    You're welcome.

    The name Casiopea is taken from a constellation, but the name of the constellation is spelled differently.
