Example of a description of a person

  • DESCRIPTION OF A PERSON I would like to talk about my best friend Lenka. I am so lucky to have her. Without her I would not be as happy as I am now. I have known her for my whole life. We are neighbours so I see her often. Lenka is small and quite slim. She has got an oval face with bright blue eyes and a full lips. She has long brown wavy hair but she usually wears it in a ponytail. She is quite beautiful, especially when she smiles. She always seems to be in a good mood. We have nearly the same hobbies and sometimes the same opinions. She always brings out the best in me by being positive and cheerful. She is like a part of my family. I trust her as much as I trust my close family member. I find her very honest; she always says what she thinks. It can be useful sometimes .For example when we go shopping she tells me frankly what fits me and what not. We are really close to each other; she can tell if I'm lying even if I am keeping a straight face! I don't know how she does it! I don't know how it is possible but I am never bored with her.  Sometimes she tends to be stubborn, she never admits her fault. But she is stubborn only with her parents, but we have never argued. I hope our friendship will be long and won't ever end.

Eample of description of a place

  • Description of a shop by Jo Greig
  • My favourite shop in the world is the Galeries Lafayette in Paris. It is a long way from my home in London, but the train to Paris is very fast. The shop is very large, with ten floors, and the building is very beautiful. At Christmas, they have coloured lights on the walls.
  • It sells everything. I go there because there are four floors of women´s fashion. They have all famous brands, but they have less expensive things too. They have a fantastic shoe department as well.
  • On my last visit, I bought a Gianfranco Ferré floral dress. I also got a floral jacket. They cost a lot of money! I wore them at my sister´s wedding last week.

Example of a description of an event

  • Description of a sporting event
  • The French open tennis championship take place in May and June every year at the Roland Garros stadium in Paris.This year, a friend gave me a ticket for the second day of the competition. I wanted to see Venus Williams in her first match of the tournament.
  • I arrived early because I wanted to get a good seat. Unfortunatelly, it was raining and I waited three hours before the match began. I had a good seat near the front. Because of the rain, there were not many people. The match was quite exciting, although Venus was much stronger than her opponent. She won 6-4, 6-3. Later, I watched Roger Federer play against Michael Russel. Unfortunatelly, it began to rain again and they did not finish the match.
  • This was my firt visit to Roland Garros. Although I was pleased that I saw stars like Williams and Federer, it was a pity that the weather was so bad. It was very cold and wet. I would like to go again, but I hope I am luckier next time.
