je suis désolée vs. je suis désolé
What's the difference?
Désolée is the feminine form, if you're a girl/woman, you write it this way. And without the final 'e' if you're a boy/man.
the majority of adjectives have two forms in french, depending on whether the person being described is male or female, or if the item is masculine (un/le) or feminine (une/la). usually you just add an -e to the end to make an adjective feminine. but there are some words where the ending of the word changes, i.e. from -eau to -elle.
Keep in mind that adjectives in French are always agreed in gender and number with what/whom it is refered to, even if it is after a verb.
- Je suis beau. (masc.) (I am handsome.)
- Tu es belle. (fem.) (You(sg) are beautiful.)
