    Ouch! Watch out for one or more of the following: 1. Number agreement between subject and verb. 2. Number and gender agreement between subject and adjective (with verb "être". Examples, les cadeaux sont beaux, les semaines sont courtes. Notes: télé is short form for télévision, so it's a féminine noun. Un imperméable is a masculine noun: un imperméable. Also, there is a difference between nouveau and neuf. When you can substitute "new" for "brand-new", then you can use "neuf"", or "neuve", depending on the gender. If you want to use new in the sense of a "new rich", or a new model of a car, nouveau/nouvelle is appropriate. When something is there for the first time, like a new invention, new ideas, we put nouveau/nouvelle after the substantive (noun or its equivalent). Finally, if the exercise is to make a sentence using the given adjectives, you don't always have to use the verb "être". For example, if you want to make a sentence using beau/belle, you could say "Elle m'a donné une belle cravate" which is more practical and interesting.

    Thank you! I made some changes, but I'm still quite unsure. 1. L'imperméable est nouveau. 2. La télévision est vieille. 3. Les feuillest sont belles. 4. Le garçon est beau. 5. Les vêtements sont nouveau. 6. Le journal est vieux. I have to make a sentence using the adjectives "beau," "nouveau," and "vieux." For beau/belle, I cannot form a sentence like that since we have not learned that yet and my teacher would wonder how I know that haha. :)
