Describing People – Using Better Adjectives

There are lots of times during the IELTS Speaking Exam when you might have to describe a person. Of course, this is going to be most likely in Part Two, but you could also encounter it at other times. To adequately describe a person, you’ll need to use some appropriate personality adjectives. Don’t just say “she’s a nice lady” or “he’s a cool guy.” The examiner wants to hear more than that. You need to show off some suitable vocabulary.

I have put together a list of intermediate personality adjectives in the PPT below. Try to guess the words from the pictures first, and then study the examples that follow. Hopefully this can help boost your IELTS Speaking score. 🙂
