How would you describe yourself as a person?

1. How would you describe yourself as a person?

I would describe myself as a creative, curious and caring person. Firstly, I love art and spend a lot of time painting and drawing. I also take a lot of interest in history, and enjoy watching documentaries about my favourite periods or people, and researching interesting stories on the internet to share with my friends and family. Finally, I am definitely a caring person, as I am always looking out for the needs of others and doing what I can to make their lives easier. Overall, I would say these three traits summarise me best.

DONTs

  • Don’t simply state your name.
  • Don’t provide your characteristics or personality traits without explanation.
  • Don’t talk about yourself negatively.
  • Don’t ramble or add extra unnecessary information.

DOs

  • Think of three main aspects of your personality to describe in one word.
  • Give examples or explanations about each personality trait you have chosen.
  • Summarise your answer briefly at the end.

Describe your family, and any other important people in your life.

2. Describe your family, and any other important people in your life.

I have a close-knit family. I have my parents, and two younger sisters. I get on well with both of my parents; my mum is a great help with homework and keeping me organised with my schoolwork, and my dad is very funny and always makes us all laugh when we play family games. My sisters are quite a bit younger than me, so I often have to look after them, but we get on well and I like to do different activities with them, such as cake decorating, walking our dog or face painting. I think family is very important, and we always make time during our busy week to spend with each other.

DONTs

  • Don’t just list their names.
  • Don’t just mention who is in your family.

DOs

  • Provide some key details about each of your main family members.
  • Give examples from real life.
  • Focus on positive aspects of your relationships.
