Arsenio’s ESL Podcast: Season 3 – Episode 57 – Vocabulary Skill – Using Descriptive Adjectives

You can make what you say more interesting by not relying on the same adjectives all the time. Try to use more descriptive language. For example, instead of saying a room is very dirty, you could say it’s grimy or filthy. We have an immediate and clear image in our minds. Instead of just a cold day, perhaps it’s chilly, bitter, or freezing?

Add these words to the correct columns.

Words: awful, delighted, enchanting, gigantic, gorgeous, huge, joyful, sizzling, steaming, terrible

beautiful hot big happy bad
lovely scorching massive cheerful unpleasant
striking blistering enormous thrilled dreadful
stunning stifling immense ecstatic horrible
