Hello. My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, we are going to talk about personalities,
we're going to talk about looks, we're going to talk about all the ways you can describe
the girl of your dreams. Okay? The woman you like, the person you have a crush on. So,
we're going to talk specifically about women and how guys can talk about them to their
So, imagine this: you're sitting in your English class and a new girl walks in, and immediately,
you've fallen in love. You think this girl is great, maybe you want to go on a date with
her, you tell your friends about it. So, your friend will ask you: "Oh, tell me what the
girl's like. Tell me, what's she like?" Okay? "Tell me what she's like." And your response,
you're going to tell them a whole bunch of descriptive words. So, I have some words about
looks, I have some words about personality, and I have some other expressions.
So, let's get started. Okay? One way you can describe someone you like, of course, is what
they look like. You can say a girl is "hot". Okay? This isn't just temperature. We use
it a lot. Well, guys use it a lot when they talk about girls. "Ah, she's hot." Okay?
You can say: "She's gorgeous." Gorgeous, not georgeous, gor, gorgeous. It's like beautiful.
Okay, so she's hot, she's gorgeous, she's "fine". You know in English, we say: -"How
are you?" -"I'm fine"? Well, when you say a girl is fine, you're saying she's hot; she
"Oh, she's cute.", "She's sexy.", "She's smoking hot." Or just: "She's smoking." Okay? All
of these expressions mean-I'm going to draw a picture-when you see her, you feel like
this because the way she looks is so good.
You can also... Don't say this in front of the girl. Okay? Whatever you do, don't say
this in front of the girl, but when you're with your friends, you can also give her a
number. Some guys say: "Oh, she's a ten." Meaning: she's perfect. "She's a nine." She's
still good. "She's an eight." Enh. If you like the girl, you're probably not going to
say she's a three; that wouldn't be nice. But this is sometimes how guys talk to her
friends, they say: "Oh, she's a ten. She's great."
You can also describe a woman based on her hair colour. "Oh, she's a blonde." Okay? I'm
a blonde. "She's a red-head." If the girl has red hair, she's a red-head. What about
somebody with dark brown hair? We would call them "a brunette". Okay? So, we have "a blonde",
and notice the "a", "a red-head", and-I guess I didn't write it-"brunette" is someone with
brown hair. Okay? Also, when I said: "a ten", "a nine", "an eight", you need "a". All right,
So, after you tell your friends about how beautiful she is. "She's gorgeous, she's hot,
she's sexy." After you tell them this, you will probably talk about personality, if you
don't talk about it first. So, personality, what are some personality words you might
use to describe the girl you like? Well, this one isn't the nicest word, but some guys like
girls who are "high-maintenance". These are the girls that they want the man to pay for
everything, they expect presents every birthday. Well, not just birthdays; people expect presents
on their birthdays. Maybe every day they want a present, every day they need you to tell
them how much you love them. These are the girls that you have to work hard to keep.
Okay? They're the girls that want you to buy them maybe a diamond ring, a diamond necklace.
So you have to pay a lot of attention to these girls, they are high-maintenance. They are
not easy to be with; you have to work hard.
The opposite of high-maintenance is someone who is "low-maintenance". This is somebody
who if you don't give them a present, they don't really care, it's okay. They're easygoing.
They... You don't have to spend all your time with them. If you forget to call them on the
phone, they're not going to get very angry. They're easygoing, they're low-maintenance.
You can also call a girl "sporty". "Oh, she's sporty." You probably know the word "sport",
if a girl is "sporty" it means she likes sports.
You can also say a girl is "talkative". Someone who is talkative talks a lot. I'm a very talkative
"Social", she's social. If she is social it means that she likes to be around people,
she has many friends, she's always hanging out with her friends. She spends a lot of
time with her friends, she's social.
A girl can also be "laid-back". If she's laid-back it means she's very relaxed, she's easygoing,
she's relaxed, she's low-maintenance. You don't feel stressed when you're with her,
Sometimes we will just say a girl, "Oh, she's cool. She's cool." Maybe she dresses nice.
She's just a good person, easy to talk to, she's cool.
A girl can also be "a tomboy". A tomboy is a girl who's very much like a boy in terms
of the fact that she loves sports, maybe she doesn't wear dresses, she wears t-shirts,
she's very athletic, she likes to drink beer and watch football. We would say she's a tomboy.
We can also talk about party girls. If she's "a party girl", she loves to party. She goes
to the parties and she drinks, she dances. She's a party girl, she loves to party.
There's also a "girly girl". "Yeah, she's a girly girl" means she loves the colour pink,
she loves shopping, she loves watching romance movies, she likes to do things that are very
stereotypically girly. She likes girly things, she's a girly girl.
You might also describe a woman, if you're adventurous, as "freaky". So it's an "e" sound,
"freaky". If she's freaky, she's a little strange, but maybe that excites you. A freaky
girl can be very exciting.
We also have the words... When we're talking about specific... About the body, you can
use the word: "killer". "Killer" you might think "enh, enh, enh", no, that's not what
I'm talking about. When I say: "killer", I mean it means very good. Okay? In this case,
"killer" means very good. So, you can say: "She has killer legs. She has a killer smile.
She has a killer body." Okay? Guys often talk about looks, and so they will often say: "She
has a killer", whatever. You probably wouldn't say something like: "She has killer feet",
that might be a little strange. You would probably say: "Killer legs, body, smile".
You can also, if you're very much in love with this girl, you think she's incredible,
you can say: "She's something else." So: "She's something else." Meaning: you can't even describe
her, she's just something else. I actually really like this one, I think this one's the
sweetest. All right?
