Because "dansk" is neuter when talking about the language

Mange tak Xneb, og fransk også. So, if you choose 'rigtigt': 1."Fransk er rigtigt smukt" or 2."Fransk er rigtig smukt" ? 1,yes?

It is the second - rigtig smukt. But why, can anyone explain?

I got the answer from another comment. The 'rigtig' belongs to to 'smukt' and not the 'Fransk' therefore it is not necessarily neuter.

Yep, and it's also virkelig, not virkeligt... But it's strange that it's "smukt", not "smuk"...

smukt because fransk is neuter, but I wonder why it's not virkeligt since it is an adverb

'Virkelig' is already an adverb, so it doesn't need an extra ending.

the dictionary however indicates that virkelig can function as an adjective http://ordnet.dk/ddo/ordbog?query=virkelig

Reading through that (I really should have done that before), you're right. 'Virkelig' can be either adjective or adverb. The important thing they say for this sentence, however, is this: "som sætningsadv. kun: -". If it's a sentence adverb ([subject] er virkelig [adjective]), it's always just 'virkelig', never with a t at the end.

I like the other example, too. Det er "en virkelig(t) irriterende regel". :D
