Category Archives: Talking about fashion and appearance
Previously I shared several ideas for speaking activities on fashion and appearance which can be found here.
In this post I want to concetrate on the vocabulary to describe appearance and personality. All three activities have been desined for B2 students and have been successfully used in my classroom.
The first activity is picture based and is aimed at introducing or reviewing adjectives to describe clothes. Check it out in a slideshow below.
Students need to choose the correct adjectives to describe the clothes in each of the pictures. Sometimes more than one adjective can be used to describe a picture.
The next activity is aimed at reviewing the adjectives to describe appearance, the task of the students is to complete the sentences with the correct adjective from the box.
And finally a matching game with compound adjectives.
You can read the description below or download it here together with the cards: Compound Adjectives To Describe personality and Appearance – Matching Game

The PPT suggests two interactive communicative activities (“speed dating” and four corners) to encourage and facilitate the discussion of fashion and appearance.
