ESL Lesson Handouts - Describing-people


People and places

Students practice describing people using adjectives to describe for character, personality, and appearance. In American English is it usual to use the structure “He/She has (long hair)”, however in British English the most common structure is “He/She has got (long hair)” which is usually contracted to “He/She’s got (long hair)”. This handout uses American English.
