Welcome to the second Igbo lesson about adjectives. This time we will first learn about colors, followed by grammar rules, then weather expressions, finally a conversation in Igbo to help you practice your daily phrases.
In general adjectives are words which describe or modify another person or object in a given sentence. For example: a beautiful flower the adjective is [beautiful] because it describes the noun [flower]. The following examples use adjectives in different ways and places to demonstrate how they behave in a sentence.
