Noun phrases/word order

You guys all know this, but it's worth remembering that the following noun phrase is not correct:
  • first my TOEFL score
It needs to be "my first TOEFL score." The word order of noun phrases is:
  • determiner (a, the, my, three) + adjective + noun
It's a little more complex when you have multiple adjectives, and "TOEFL score" is deceptive because it's 複合名詞. Still, it's not that hard.

If you are struggling with stuff like this, please attend Yoshi-sensei's 5 week grammar class. You won't regret it.

Please use English well!
