Write a description of someone you know well, a friend or a relative, whose appearance has changed. What did they look like before, and what do they look like now? Why and how did they change? Adjectives for Describing Appearance 6. Can you sort these words into positive, negative and neutral adjectives? attractive fat beautiful brunette smart tall well-built redhead thin presentable skinny scruffy handsome slender flabby

My younger sister is more like my father. She has an oval face and an upturned nose. My older sister is like a model. She has a slim figure and a slender waist. She has a lovely complexion and beautiful sleek, shoulder-length hair, and she's always immaculately groomed. I feel so ordinary next to her – I've got coarse hair and rather broad hips, but she always says I look nice. 10. Choose the right word from the text above:
    1. Fat in a pleasant and attractive way; 2. Long and hanging down heavily; 3. Shaped like an egg; 4. Attractively slim (a rather formal, poetic word); 5. The natural color and quality of a person's skin; 6. Smooth and shiny; 7. Her appearance is always tidy and looked after with great care; 8. Rough, and not smooth or soft
      More  description:
    1. My father and my two older brothers are all well-built with broad shoulders. My father is going bald but he still has a very youthful appearance for someone who is over forty. My brothers both have thick hair and bushy eyebrows. My younger brother is only two – he's just a tiny tot, but he's very cute. My mother's side of the family mostly have dark hair – in fact my mother had jet-black hair when she was younger, before she went grey – but on my father's side some have fair hair and some have ginger hair.
    11. Choose the right word from the text above:
    1. have strong, attractive bodies; 2. very thick; 3. a small child; 4. completely black 5. a red or orange-brown colour; used of people's hair
    2. Ashish is a very vain boy. He thinks he has a nice long black hair and beautiful big blue eyes. He lives in a Town called Biratnagar, in the East of Nepl. He's eighteen years old. He goes to Arniko HSS, and he's in class 12. His favourite subjects are mathematics, botany and computer science. He's a good student. His favourite singer is Shakira. He likes pets, but he can't have one, because he lives in a small house with his parents, his sister and his grandmother.
    3. I'd like to talk about my aunt. Her name's Marta and she's quite a character. She's middle-aged but has a very youthful appearance. She's a little overweight but not too much. She has a friendly round face framed by thick blonde hair. She has a lovely complexion and she's always well-turned out. Actually she always looks as though she's going out for the evening to somewhere special - there's never a hair out of place.  I've always thought she bears a striking resemblance to someone on TV - I can't remember the name now. She wears glasses and always seems to have a different pair on every time I see her. I like the way she looks because she wears clothes that are right for her age and manages to look glamorous without it looking like she's too done up. I'll be happy if I look like her when I'm her age.
    4. I'd like to describe my English teacher from school: Miss Thomas. She was my teacher at a time when I was getting a little bored with being at school. Unlike some of the other teachers Miss Thomas never lost her temper. She was very calm and easy-going. She was also very broad-minded -  we were able to ask her questions about lots of subjects that some other teachers would refuse to discuss which made us respect her even more. She had a great sense of humour too:  she'd laugh at our jokes as well as making us laugh, and she would also bend over backwards to help us with our work. She always put us first and often stayed around at the end of class to talk with anyone who needed help .Apparently she was highly respected within her field but you would never know as she was the type that hid her light under a bushel. She was very modest and self-effacing, so Miss Thomas was a teacher I have fond memories of.
    5. 12.  Match the adjectives in the first set with the nouns in the second set.
    First set: bushy, tiny, oval, striking, broad, droopy, chubby, disheveled Second set: cheeks, moustache, shoulders, hair, eyebrows, resemblance, tot, face Now fill in the gaps using the appropriate collocations made above. Sometimes the first letter(s) are given: I hadn't seen Mani Poudel since he was just a (1) t……………... t…………….…., so I was surprised to see that he was now a tall  young man. He was (2) im…………………..…..… gr……………..….., smart and elegant. He was with a pretty young woman with (3) j………..….-black, (4) shoulder-………………………. hair and a  (5) l………………..…….com………………………….……… He had his arm round her (7) s……………..……… wa…………..…. With them was a (8) po………..……. g……………..……., who looked as though he enjoyed good food, and who was probably her father. When I introduced myself to Mani, he smiled. 'Of course, I remember you,' he said. 'You used to work with my father. But you haven't aged at all! You have a much more (9) y……….….…….. a………………………..than my father now does. Dad has (10)……………………........ very grey.' I felt very pleased when he said that; he obviously didn't notice I was beginning to ………………………… bald. Everyone likes to think they look young when they get older. Follow up: Find a description of the hero or heroine in an English novel or short story. Note down any interesting collocations that you find there. Here are a few: 1.  He had the appearance of a Mogul warrior: thick shock of curly hair, sideburns which met the drooping curve of his moustache, a strong, stocky torso, long muscular arms and slightly bowed legs. Hasari Pal (The City of Joy by Dominique Lapierre) 2. Aloka was a young woman with a clear complexion and the look of an angel. The wing of her nose was pierced with a gold ring and her ankles were ornamented with bangles that jangled as she walked. 3. She was beautiful and lithe, with soft skin the colour of bread and eyes like green almonds, and she had straight black hair that reached to her shoulders, and an aura of antiquity that could just as well have been Indonesian or Andean. She was dressed with subtle taste: a lynx jacket, a raw silk blouse with very delicate flowers, natural linen trousers, and shoes with a narrow stripe the colour of bougainvillea. Garcia Marquez's character in the story, "Sleeping Beauty and the Airplane." 4. "She lay in her yellow Crimplene bellbottoms with her hair in a ribbon and her Made-in-England go-go bag that she loved.
