Ordre des adjectifs

Bonjour! Un exemple dans cette leçon indique:

>Exemple: Le joli garçon est avec la jolie fille.

Pourquoi c'est "la jolie fille" et pas "la fille jolie"?

[I wrote this in French as practice; but I thought that adjectives follow nouns in French? Is there a lesson going over how to order adjectives?


In addition, I'd love any feedback on the presentation/construction of my question! Writing longer sentences in French is hard.]

Hi Josh,

This aspect of French grammar is difficult to get right.

Position of French Adjectives - Short and common adjectives that go BEFORE nouns

 Have a look at the link above and the other links at the very end of this link.

I hope this will give a comprehensive explanation.

Bonne continuation.

Jim
