Well, adjective placing is the other way around in romance languages (Portuguese, Italian, Spanish, French for ex.) than in Germanic languages (English, German). So While you'd say Red apple (eng.) and Roter Apfel (german) you'd say Ma├ža Vermelha (portuguese) Manzana Roja (spanish) Mela rossa (italian) and Pomme rouge (french).

Sebasm90 is correct. French is a whole different language than english. It's not english in a different way. Different rules and conjunctions. It's a very hard language but keep at it and you will do great :)
