Describing People


The City College in Manchester, England has a series of good exercises teaching Adjectives That Describe People.  They first teach the word (cold, fat, famous, etc.) through the use of pictures, and then the student is given the adjective and has to pick which picture is appropriate.

There isn’t audio on the site, but it’s still very effective.  I’ve placed it at the bottom of the Descriptions section of English Themes for Beginners and Early Intermediate.
