HOW TO DESCRIBE? IMPORTANT VOCABULARY TO USE AND EXPLANATION

Describing is really very important in the communication of any language. As better we can describe as better we can get the response of description. But whenever we describe we need to describe in such a way that a listener or reader can feel the description.

Here I want to share with you what is description?  How many parts of it? What are the different parts of the description? And also the vocabulary for proper description in the English language!

The description is the narrative explanation of any given topic in such a way that it can be easily understood.

It is important to also know that whenever we describe we relate our emotions with the particular description. For example, if we ask this question to 2 different people

Which one is a better job or business?

Both of them will share their own views.

Generally, we describe in total 4 categories:

  1. THINGS
  2. PEOPLE
  3. EVENTS
  4. ROUTINES
