Adjectives ending in -s not always the same in feminine form

The lesson states that adjectives ending in -s have the s doubled in the feminine form, but this isn’t always the case. I know that gris is grise in the feminine form. Maybe exceptions should be pointed out or maybe at least make it clear it’s not always true?

This has been raised a few times in the comments over a period of years now, including by me (hence I am in complete agreement with you). It would be easy to add ‘most’ or a further more detailed qualification to improve the accuracy of the lesson.
