"A blue skirt"
Translation:Una falda azul
I'm not a fluent speaker yet, but it seems to be that like other Romance languages, the adjective goes after the verb.
In Spanish, the adjective is placed before the noun that is described unlike in English. However, there are some exceptions to that rule.
Just the opposite. In Spanish, the adjective is placed AFTER the noun that is described, unlike in English. However, there are some exceptions to that rule.
English is actually one of the few languages that describes an adjective before the noun. In most other languages, including Spanish, the noun is stated before the adjective so the direct English translation would be skirt blue
It just is? In spanish adjectives come after the noun they modify just because that's how they talk
yep. As it happens with green (verde), some of them only vary in number but not gender. Check the given chart in the explanation of the lesson.
The chart is in the description of the lesson. Most lessons on Duolingo have a description / grammatical explanation. On the webpage you can easily access it by clicking the lesson. On the mobile app unfortunately the descriptions do not seem to be available

"Vestido" ends with "o" so it's masculine, "falda" ends with "a" so it's feminine. There are exceptions, but this is not one.
Why was the previous sentence not following the same rule?
I eat a red strawberry Yo como una fresa roja Why is roja not before fresa?
You are wrong. It's the same rule, "falda azul", "fresa roja", the color is after the noun.
explain to me why does the skirt come before the color? I want to say "a blue shirt" bur in spanish it is "un falda azul"
shirt is camisa, falda is skirt. Each language has its ways: in English one woudn't say "a skirt blue" because it would be wrong. In Spanish one says "la falda azul". There are things one just has to learn.
