In most cases, the rule is that when a word ends in either ה or ת, the word will be feminine. If it ends in any other letter, it will be masculine. BUT, there are also exceptions to this rule. With those words, the only way to know is by memorizing them. There is a post here on Duolingo called "misleading genders of Hebrew words" which lists those exceptions:
If you're a guy , taim you'd use it for I, & male singular you, taima. I spoken by a female, and female singular you.
This is all in the tips and notes.
"adjective is a word which describes a noun. In Hebrew, the adjective follows the noun it describes and agrees with it in gender and number."
