Exercise 40. Give a character sketch of a person you know and like (dislike). Use the topical vocabulary. Remember: the sketch should be informative and convincing enough. A mere outward description of a person is not a character sketch. You should present a sort of critical analysis and pass your own well-grounded judgement of a personality.

1. Appearance: age, height, weight, build of figure, face, hair, eyes, complexion, clothes.

2. Background: family, education, profession or occupation.

3. Likes and dislikes: with regard to people, tastes, hobbies and interests.

4. Character: temperament, disposition.

5. Conclusions.

 

Exercise 41. You are asked to tell a group of students about your favourite fiction (literary, film) character. Describe the character in about 50 words. Use the Topical Vocabulary and the Outline for a Character Sketch of Exercise 17.

 

Exercise 42. Work in pairs. Discuss real people or fiction characters you find interesting. Bring out clearly their most prominent individual traits. One of the students is supposed to describe a person he/she likes, the other a person he/she dislikes. Try and interrupt each other with questions to get sufficient information concerning the characters you speak about. Use the Topical Vocabulary, Outline for a Character Sketch and clichés given below.

When describing people you either criticise or praise them. When you criticise you normally try to find faults rather than positive traits of character but it certainly does not exclude the expression of praise. Here are some comments that people make when they are invited to analyse and judge:
