Points to remember
Make your composition more interesting by using a wide range of
adjectives (fabulous, superb, etc.) instead of a limited one (good, big, nice, etc).
Be careful with the use of tenses. You can use present tenses when you
describe someone in the present, and past tenses when you describe someone
related to the past. e.g. someone you had met before you moved to this city,
someone who is no longer alive, etc.
Avoid writing simple short sentences. More complex sentences joined
saying: John is thin. He has large blue eyes. He has long curly hair. He has full
lips. He wears his hair loose, you can say: John is a tall thin man with large
blue eyes and full lips. He wears his long curly hair loose.
Exercise 3
justification given. Which paragraph gives information about Johns daily
routine? In which paragraph does the writer express his feeling about
John?
MODEL 1
John is 20. He is my best friend and he is the person I depend on most.
He is taller than me and fat. He wears jeans and sweatshirts at home, but he
wears a suit for work. He has blue eyes and brown hair. John is patient, tolerant,
polite, kind, enthusiastic and relaxed, but he is sometimes aggressive, careless,
shy and selfish.
John works in a bookshop. He likes it very much. In his free time he likes
watching TV and reading. He sometimes goes to restaurants.
I first met John at a party at my cousins house. I didnt like him at first,
but now I do. John is also very good at sports. He plays tennis and badminton.
He usually wins.
I hope that John and I are friends forever. He is best friend.
MODEL 2
Six years ago I went to my cousins birthday party, and thats where I
met John. I must admit that at first I thought he was unfriendly, because he
wasnt speaking to anyone, then I realized he was quite shy.
John is now 20 years old, the same age as me. Hes about 6 feet tall and a
bit overweight. He has big blue eyes set in a round face. He has a small, turned-
up nose and curly, black hair. He usually wears casual clothes, like jeans and a
sweatshirt. For special occasions he wears a suit and tie.
What I like most about John is that hes very patient, and tolerant. He
never hurries you or gets angry if hes kept waiting. He is very kind to animals
and often feeds stray dogs and cats. Unfortunately, he can be careless and often
makes mistakes at work.
