Describing people

A descriptive essay about a person should consist of:
a) an Introduction in which you give general information about the person, saying when, where and how you first met them;
b) a Main Body in which you describe their physical appearance, personal qualities and hobbies/interest. You start a new paragraph for each topic;
c) a Conclusion in which you write your comments and/or feelings about the person.

** When describing someone you know well or see often(i.e a friend, a neighbour, etc), you should use present tenses. When describing someone who is no longer alive, or someone you knew a long time ago and you do not see any more, you should use past tenses.
** Descriptions of people can be found in articles, letters, narratives, etc. The writing style you use depends on the situation and the intended reader. For example, if you are writing an article for a magazine, you should use semi-formal style and a polite, respectful tone.
