C1-C2 Adjectives for describing bodies

WE HAVE DEEP ROOTS IN THE GREENWOOD

” I fear those grey, old men of Mocca’s Park,” Wrote Francis Kilvert, the Victorian diarist. “Those grey, gnarled, low-browed, knock-kneed, bowed, bent, huge, strange, long-armed, deformed, hunch-backed, misshapen oak men that stand waiting and watching century after century.”

When it comes to describing something or somebody, it is very usual to notice that a student is not using a wide variety of language. All too often, one constantly hears things like “nice, cool, tall, pretty and beautiful” even in the highest levels. This is normal, as a student usually focuses more on other aspects of the language such as syntax and choosing the right verb pattern. However, even when a message has been put forward efficiently and accurately, if the student failed to produce a juicy selection of collocations, adjectives, verbs and even some odd idiom, they won’t get far concerning grades.

In this activity, you can find and practise some adjectives related to weight, shape and muscles. You’ll also have a couple of tips related to adjectives that are used disapprovingly.
