Nuevas tecnologías

Is ´"tecnologías nuevas" wrong? I thought nueva could be put before or after the noun?

Hola Peter

You're right. You can also put the adjective after the noun (which is actually more common). We put it in front here for emphasis. We'll add this to the challenge as also correct.

I understood that nuevo before a noun means “new to me” and after means “brand new”, as nuevo coche - a car new to me but coche nuevo - a brand new car. Dunno if I’m right though!

Sometimes if you put an adjective before a noun it makes a different meaning.

Technically, no but it is weird. I believe New Tech is considered a phrase and that is why you would say New Tech not Tech New.
