Adjectives in French?

Salut, fellow french learners. I am finding it difficult to ascertain the proper place to put the adjectives(i. e. after/before the noun). I know there is a rule called BANGS for the same but haven't understood it much. Can anyone explain/point to an explanation for the same? Merci beaucoup!

All the rules are here: http://www.francaisfacile.com/exercices/exercice-francais-2/exercice-francais-21109.php

But to learn these rules you just have to listen and read a lot of French. Once you hear "un bon dictionnaire", you'll know that "bon" is always before the noun etc.

That's been my experience as well. After you've been speaking for a while, it starts to come naturally. Don't worry. Your ear will tell you with ease soon enough!

Le chat noir. The black cat.

From my observations, the adjective comes after the noun.
