Angela, that is a wonderful mnemonic. Thank you very much.
I am often envious of people who'd studied French at a young age but, there again, I came to live in France in order to "force" myself (and OH) to get to grips with a different culture and language so as to keep ze leetle grey cells from atrophy.
I'm good with after a negative and also after any measure or quantity but I forget the adjective bit. Hah, when I get back to French class, I can show off to the classmates and amaze the long-suffering teacher!
Apprendre une langue, c'est faire un voyage différent chaque jour.
