Writing a description of a person

1. Read the description of Emily Morgan. Write the words and phrases used to describe her on the chart.

Physical appearance  

Emily Morgan, My aunt

Of all my relatives, I like my Aunt Emily the best. She’s my mother’s youngest sister. She has never married and she lives all alone in a small village near Bath. She’s in her late fifties, but she’s still quite young in spirit. She has a fair complexion, curly grey hair, and deep blue eyes. She has a kind face, and when you meet her, the first thing you notice about her is her warm, friendly smile. Her face is a little lined now, but I think she is still rather attractive. She is the kind of person you can always go to if you have a problem.

Aunt Emily likes reading and gardening, and she likes to take her dog, Buster, for long walks in the park.

She’s a very active person. Either she’s making something or mending something or doing something to help others. She does the shopping for some of the old people in the village. She’s extremely generous, but not very tolerant of people who don’t agree with her. I hope that I am as contented as she is when I am her age.

Szerencs u. 43 330 Eger Hungary   Friday, 14 June   Dear Mr. and Mrs. Kendall   I am home now since two weeks, but I have to start work immediately, so this is the first time is possible for me to write. How are you? Are you busy as usual? Does Tim still work hard for his exam next month? I am miss you a lot and also all my friends from Dublin. Yesterday I’ve received a letter from my Spain friend, Martina, and she told me about some of the other people I met. She say that Atsuko and Yuki will write me from Japan. I am lucky because I made so many good friend during I was in Ireland. It was really interesting for me to meet people from so many different countries. I think that we not only improved our English (I hope this!) but we also knew people from all over the world and this is important. My family are fine. They had a good summer holiday by the lake. We are all very exciting because my brother will get married just before Christmas and we like very much his girlfriend. They have looked for a flat near the city centre but it is no easy to find one. If they won’t find one soon, they will have to stay here with us. Please can you check something for me? I can’t find my red scarf. I think maybe I have forgotten it in the cuboard in my bedroom. Please write soon. My family send best wishes ti you all. I hope I come back next year. Stay with you was a very wonderful experience for me. Thank you for all things and excuse my mistakes. I already forget much words.   Yours faithfully, Kati PS I hope you like the photo. It’s nice, isn’t it?
