"A round girl"
I don't understand when an adjective should go before or after the noun it is describing: 'une robe propre' or 'une propre robe'?
Unfortunately there are many exceptions that we have to learn as we go. Ronde just happens to be one of them.
adjectives that are about beauty, age, good/bad and size are almost all the exceptions Ici unne bonne link! ;) http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/adjectives_4.htm
How are we supposed to know which words have exceptions and which don't if they don't tell us.
Anyone wondering about order of adjectives just google 'french BAGS adjectives' it's a mnemonic device that helps you remember which ones go in front. :)
i got it wrong too. but when i open this http://french.about.com/od/grammar/a/adjectives_4.htm shape(round) is in the position which needs to be after the noun. and now i finally understand :D

Round is not size, technically, it is a shape. I think that's why based on the BAGS/BANGS rule it still comes after the noun.
It doesn't make sense to me that you will say 'une belle fille', yet in the next sentence 'une fille ronde', you put the adjective after the noun. How do we distinguish when to put an adjective before or after a noun??
