                                                                  • 1. My father has a round , with chubby and a droopy . My mother has a more pointed and a straight . My younger sister is more like my father. She has an oval and an upturned . My older sister is like a model. She has a slim and a slender . She has a lovely and beautiful sleek, shoulder-length , and she’s always immaculately . I feel so ordinary next to her — I’ve got coarse and rather broad , but she always says I look nice.

                                                                    1. 2. My father and my two older brothers are all well- with shoulders. My father is bald but he still has a very youthful for someone who is forty. My brothers both have thick and eyebrows. My younger brother is only two – he’s just a tot, but he’s very cute. My mother’s side of the family mostly have dark — in fact my mother had -black hair when she was younger, before she went — but on my father’s side some have fair and some have ginger .

                                                                      1. 3. I hadn’t seen Will since he was just a tiny , so I was surprised to see that he was now a tall young man. He was groomed, smart and elegant. He was with a pretty young woman with jet- , shoulder- hair and a complexion. She could have been a model, she had such a striking appearance. He had his arm round her slender . With them was a gentleman, who looked as though he enjoyed good food, and who was probably her father. When I introduced myself to Will, he smiled. ‘Of course, I remember you,’ he said. ‘You used to work with my father. But you haven’t aged at all! You have a much more appearance than my father now does. Dad has very grey.’ I felt very pleased when he said that; he obviously didn’t notice I was beginning to bald. Everyone likes to think they look young when they get older.

                                                                      2. Use pairs of the words below to give contrasting meanings.
