Description
English has a wealth of vocabulary to describe someone's character. The list can be quite daunting for students!

These cards provide a fun way to help your students build their knowledge of these adjectives.

There are sixteen different words (e.g. sympathetic, vain, short-tempered) which students need to match to the descriptions.

There's also a quiz checking your students have learned the new language. This can be used in the lesson, or set as homework.
