Read the theory box and the paragraph plan.
Descriptions of/Articles about people should consist of:
a) an introduction giving brief
general information about the person name/relationsh to you
& how/when you met him/her.
b) a main body of two to four paragraphs describing the person’s physical appearance, personality and hobbies/interests/activities/ achievements etc. in separate paragraphs. Start each paragraph with a topic sentence which summarises the paragraph.
c) a conclusion with your comments & feelings about the person.
Descriptions of people can be found in articles, letters, narratives etc. We use present tenses to describe someone we know well/see often (a relative, a $ood neig and past tenses to describe someone who is no longer alive or who we don’t see any more (our best friend from primary school, a grandparent who has died).
