Personal Description in Spanish

This spanish assignment was done for the purpose to get us to describe by using our spanish adjectives. This past week we’ve been using adjectives to be able to describe people in spanish. The importance of knowing how to do this is that  many times we describe people and things in our own language but it’s also very important to be able to see how different it is and the culture which we might need to be able to do in english and spanish, also to be able to create a descriptive image of how a person looks and what they like to do.
