The adjective shows us, how something or someone is.
E.g.: „Wie ist das Eis?“ „Es ist kalt.“ (= "How is the ice-cream?" "It's cold.")
The word „kalt“ (= cold) is an adjective.

Adjectives are used in sentences with „sein“ (= to be) or other verbs.
E.g.: „Wie schmeckt das Eis?“ „Es schmeckt süß.“ ("How does the ice-cream taste?" "It tastes sweet.")
