Spanish Adjectives - Adjetivos en Español
Adjectives are used to modify nouns. An example would be "The boy feeds the hungry dog". In this example the word "dog" is the noun and the word "hungry" is the adjective. The adjective is used to describe the noun, such as the state of being, the color, the size, etc.
In Spanish, the adjective used must agree with the noun in gender and in number. If you have a feminine noun, you use the feminine version of the adjective. If you have a plural noun, you use the plural version of the adjective. Also in Spanish, the adjective normally follows the noun in the sentence.
El niño da de comer al perro hambriento.
The boy gave diner to the hungry dog.
Los padres orgullosos observaban los niños por la plataforma.
The proud parents watched the children on the stage.
La niña bonita canta una melodía.

In the examples above, the adjectives in Spanish agree with the corresponding noun in gender and in number and the adjectives are placed after the noun in the sentence.
