Bonjour.  I am confused as how different is spelled.  Sometimes I see ¨différent¨ but sometimes ¨différente¨

Thanks

An example of adjectival agreement with the gender of the noun. Masculine - différent, feminine - différente.

Most adjectives can be made feminine by adding -e in French

The spelling is different depending on the gender of the noun which the adjective refers to:

un homme différent -- a different man.
une femme différente -- a different woman.
