Japanese Lesson: Adjectives

Today I learned some Japanese adjectives and how to use them before nouns. I asked my teacher if there is a rule I could follow so that I would know whether to use な or い after adjectives and before nouns. But, as I expected, she said there is no rule and the only way I can use them is to remember which words use which character.

Although I expected it, it wasn’t the answer I wanted and it’s the answer I dislike the most when learning. It’s difficult because there are already a lot of things to remember but there’s nothing I can do so I’ll just force everything into my brain until I can remember them all.
