In French, most adjectives are placed after the noun.
Certain adjectives are placed before the noun, some which you can memorize with the acronym "BANGS":
Beauty - Age - Numbers - Good and bad - Size (except for grand with people)
These descriptors - and a few others - are considered inherent qualities of the noun: For example "une jolie fille" for "a pretty girl"

A noun is a word that represents a person, place, or thing, whether concrete (e.g., chair, dog) or abstract (idea, happiness). In French, all nouns have a gender - they are either masculine or feminine. The gender of some nouns makes sense (homme [man] is masculine, femme [woman] is feminine) but others don't: the words personne [person] and victime [victim] are always feminine, even when the person or victim is a man.
It is very important to learn a noun's gender along with the noun itself because articles, adjectives, some pronouns, and some verbs have to agree with nouns; that is, they change depending on the gender of the noun they modify.
There is no easy way to determine the gender of every noun, and you have to remember the gender with each word. But a number of patterns in suffixes and word endings are helpful: some tend to indicate masculine or feminine nouns. For example, when a noun ends with an "e", it is usually feminine (like "robe" [dress]). But be careful with the exceptions!
