General Appearance
 
My next door neighbor is a middle aged woman.  She’s very smart and elegant, always well-dressed; her husband is quite the opposite, very scruffy and untidy-looking.
 
My cousin is a man of medium height and build in his mid-twenties.  He is very handsome.  Actually he is the only good-looking man in the family.  He’s inherited all the good things from his parents: big eyes, a pointed nose and good skin. 
 
My father is in his late fifties.  He is a short and stout man with a pot belly.  He’s got small eyes and a big nose.  He wears a pair of glasses.  My father was a policeman.  He used to be strong and quick but since he retired, he has put on much weight.  
 
My aunt is a petite woman who is about 155cm tall.  She is 2 years younger than my mum.  People often mistake my aunt for my mum.  They both have the same pointed nose and high cheekbones. 
 
When I last saw my brother, he was a lanky eighteen-year-old with scruffy, long hair and a thin moustache that looked silly.  He was shy.  But now, I’ve just returned from two years study in America, he is absolutely gorgeous.  He has become a huge guy.  He’s broad-shouldered and big-boned.  A boy has become a man. 
 
My friend Sara has always been a bit chubby.  Over long vacations, she ate lots of good food and got depressed because she was really overweight.  So she went on a crash diet, lost loads of weight and started working out at the gym.  She’s transformed.  Now, she’s absolutely gorgeous with a very lovely figure.
 
Tom was a curly-haired, sun-tanned, blue-eyed, rosy-cheeked, thin lipped, broad-shouldered, left-handed, slim-hipped, long-legged, flat-footed young man, wearing an open-necked shirt, brand-new, tight-fitting jeans and open-toed sandals.
 
Personality
 
My boss is very hard-working.  He never leaves the office until after 9 o’clock.
 
My little sister is very outgoing.  She’s made friends with everybody else in the class already. 
 
My friend Zhang is a very easy-going sort of guy.  Nothing seems to worry him.
 
The boy living next door to me is so cheerful that I’ve never seen him in a bad mood.
 
Lee is so shy.  I don’t think he’s spoken to any of the other students yet.
 
Don’t expect him to put any money in the collection.  He’s much too mean.
 
I can’t believe her boyfriend’s so lazy.  He just sits and watches TV all evening.
 
She never thinks about anyone but herself.  She can be a bit selfish. 
 
I can’t understand why my girlfriend is such a moody girl.  One minute life is wonderful and the next minute she’s in her room crying. 
 
I really don’t like Bob.  He seems to think that he’s more important than anybody else.  He certainly can be very arrogant. 
 
My uncle can be very amusing.  He’s such good fun.  He’s got a great sense of humour.  It’s never boring to be with him. 
 
My friend loves parties.  That’s because she likes to be the centre of attention.  She’s very outgoing and sociable.
 
My next door neighbour loves gossip.  He always wants to know what everybody else is up to.  I can’t understand why he is so nosy and inquisitive.
 
What I like about my dorm mate Zhou is the way he listens to people and remembers small things about them.  He’s so sensitive and thoughtful.
