1. Read descriptive messages of one’s appearance in Mandarin
2. Write a piece of descriptive writing of one’s appearance in Chinese characters
Learning the description of one’s appearance in Mandarin is not too difficult. Using the previous knowledge from the sets we learned about body parts and the opposite words, they can make specific sentences describing the appearance. In details, the descriptions of one’s appearance are:
他的脸圆圆的。 Tā de liǎn yuán yuan de. (His face is round.)
他个子高。 Tā gè zi gāo. (He is tall.)
他个子矮。 Tā gè zi ǎi. (He is short.)
他的头发短短的。 Tā de tóu fa duǎn duan de. (His hair is short.)
她的头发长长的。 Tā de tóu fa cháng chang de. (Her hair is long.)
他的眼睛大大的。 Tā de yǎn jing dà da de. (His eyes are big.)
他的耳朵小小的。 Tā de ěr duo xiǎo xiao de. (His ears are small.)
他掉牙了。 Tā diào yá le. (He lost a tooth.)
他掉了两颗牙。 Tā diào le liǎng kē yá. (He lost two teeth.)
他长什么样？ Tā chǎng shén me yàng? (What does he look like?)
I have made a set of cards on Quizlet (quizlet.com or download the app for phone or ipad) to help your child practice learning the this topic.
Search for laoshilinda (all one word lower case) and then choose description of body.

You do not need to know any Mandarin yourself to use any of these resources.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
