    "Urban cultural girls are really selfish."

    Hi teachers,

    Can I use two adjectives together in a sentence?

    "Urban cultural girls are really selfish." Is this context okay?


    Thanks.

    I want to say that girls who have grown up in town where urban environment exists and yeah, by "culture" I meant "environment".

    You certainly can — more than two if you wish.

    'Urban and cultural' are not very clear adjectives to describe girls brought up in an urban environment, and it's a something of a sweeping statement to describe them all as selfish.

    Re: "Urban cultural girls are really selfish."

    Leaving aside the sweeping generalisation, you could say "Urban girls are all selfish" or perhaps "City girls are all selfish".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
