Language is what allows us to interact with other people and communicate in many ways; it is hardly surprising, therefore, that all languages in the world have many terms for describing the appearance and emotions of people in a complete way. Spanish is no exception and, for this reason, we have provided here various sections of pages dedicated to this type of vocabulary for you to take a look at and try to learn if you think that they might be useful to you while you are talking to native speakers. There are a lot of instances in which you might need to describe someone: if someone asks about your family or the people that you know back home, then you can tell them exactly what they are like and what you like about them. If you are discussing a film that you have just watched as an extra part of your learning then you can discuss a particular character that you saw on the screen; if you want to look for someone, perhaps a classmate that you have gone out at night with and have been split up from, then you might want to describe them to see if anyone has seen them. You might even need to describe body parts and feelings to a doctor while you are here in case something happens which means that you require medical assistance.

Firstly, you will find a page which is dedicated to the description of the human body and its different parts, which may come in handy for descriptions and medical situations. The second list is devoted to the characteristics of people which will help you talk about them with others, the third to clothing which will certainly come in handy when shopping or when looking for someone in particular, and the fourth to emotions so that you can discuss how you feel. This is a complete guide to describing people in all of the ways that are possible!
