  • Today I'm going to show lots of pictures for examples.

  • So let's get started.

  • I'm going to share the video and then I am going to begin the lesson.

  • So today's lesson is going to start with some common phrases we use to describe appearance.

  • So let's get into it.

  • The first expression I want to talk about is to look nice to look nice.

  • This is a very general expression you can use for men and for women to look nice in an example sentence.

  • You look nice.

  • You look nice.

  • So someone is dressed very well for a fancy party where someone has a new hairstyle.

  • That's really great.

  • You can say You look nice.

  • You look nice.

  • So you do need to keep in mind a point to remember this Look does need to change.

  • If your subject is he she or it?

  • So, for example, he looks nice.

  • He looks nice.

  • So you want to talk about your brother or your father or your boyfriend or your husband or some mail in your life?

  • He looks nice.

  • Same thing for she as well.

  • She looks nice.

  • She looks nice.

  • So this is a general and polite, friendly way to make a compliment about someone's appearance.

  • You look nice.

  • He looks nice.

  • He looks nice.

  • Okay?

  • And if you want to use someone's name here like Eric looks nicer.

  • Are Devon looks nice or a recent looks nice.

  • Same pattern used.

  • This s form here.

  • So Eric looks nice.

  • Of course.

  • The opposite is Doesn't look nice like that doesn't look nice.

  • He doesn't look nice, but hopefully you can use the positive more office, So looks nice and look nice.

  • Okay?

  • Eric says I do good.

  • All right.

  • Good.

  • This is our first expression.

  • Let's talk now about this one here to suit to suit.

  • So this is a verb.

  • So to suit is different from suit.

  • Like the name of the clothing item.

  • I like a three piece suit.

  • This is a verb to suit.

  • Means to suit means to match.

  • To suit means to match something.

  • So, for example, that hair cut really suits you.

  • That haircut really suits you.

  • That means your hairstyle, whatever your haircut is, matches you.

  • So in other words, your haircut looks nice on you, so it means something matches the person.

  • In this case, that haircut really suits you.

  • So here I'm using that haircut as my noun phrase.

  • That haircut You could say that shirt really suits you or those shoes really suited you.

  • So again, you need to be careful of your conjugation with suits.

  • If this part your subject here is singular, it it really suits you use.

  • This s hear it suits you.

  • It suits you.

  • If this part is plural, like my example.

  • Those shoes, those shoes plural.

  • Really?

  • Suit.

  • You know, s those shoes really suit you?

  • So please consider your subject and whether it's plural or singular, those shoes really suits you.

  • That haircut really suits you okay?

  • Some of you are writing.

  • Nice comments.

  • Alicia looks, but make sure looks looks nice.

  • So if the subject here is a person use s Alicia looks nice.

  • So please be careful of that that someone caught on to you.

  • Okay, Uh, let's go to the next point is to fit to fit.

  • Some people use fit to mean the same thing as to suit.

  • Yes, but for this lesson, let's look at to fit too mean to match someone's body size to match someone's body size.

  • So, for example, this is kind of a negative expression.

  • I'm not sure that shirt fits you properly.

  • I'm not sure that shirt fits you properly.

  • So fit refers to the size of the clothing.

  • So, for example, if this shirt was super big, someone might say like, I'm I'm not sure.

  • Meaning?

  • I don't know.

  • I'm not sure that shirt your shirt fits you properly.

  • So that means I'm not sure that shirt is the correct size for you.

  • I'm not sure that sure is the correct size for you.

  • I'm not sure that shirt fits you properly.

  • So again, that shirt is a singular.

  • So we need to conjugated the verb fit to fits that shirt fits or that shirt doesn't fit you is another way to say that so to fit means to be the correct size for something.

  • But some people can also use it to mean match much.

  • Okay, on to the next one after the next one to be cute.

  • So let's look at these two together to be cute and to be sexy.

  • What's the difference here?

  • We tend to use cute like if we're talking about kids, will say, Oh, he's so cute or she's so cute.

  • It has kind of this childish feel about it in English.

  • Cute.

  • Sounds like something that's very kind of for young kids, like a cute game or a cute dress or maybe a cute toy.

  • It has kind of this childish feel about it, so we can say that we think someone is cute like a person were attracted to is cute, but it has kind of a sweet feel like a nice feel about like, Oh, he's cute or I think she's cute so we can use this to describe attraction as well.

  • So the difference with like cute and sexy sexy is is kind of more adults generally.

  • So when we use sexy, it's often when we can see a lot of someone's skin like we would to say, like like swimsuit models are sexy, so like men or women without, like, a a shirt or without jeans or whatever.

  • So we can see a lot of their skin and their posing like in a way, to model the clothes in an attractive way.

  • We would say That's very sexy.

  • So something, um, that's more adult is usually sexy, so we use cute more for like, kind of sweet, nicer things.

  • Of course, it's possible to be sexy.

  • And to be cute, we can use both words to describe a person, So this is kind of the difference in feel between sexy and cute.

  • For example, her dress is so cute.

  • Her dress is so cute.

  • So actually here I've used cute as an adjective.

  • This is probably, uh, the more common way that we use this.

  • I've got this as a bird here, like oh, uh, her dress is so cute.

  • This is probably a more common way that we use it, but you could use it as a bird as well to like, Oh, she's being cute.

  • She's being cute, meaning like she's just kind of being nice or she's being sweet.

  • Ah, here to similarly so to be sexy, we can use it in, like as a verb as well.

  • Like wow, like, um, like they're being very sexy in this photo shoot today.

  • We could use it that way.

  • We also use it as an adjective here.

  • So that photo is so sexy that photo is so sexy.

  • I made this look like a question.

  • That photo is so sexy like, did you see his instagram post or did you see her instagram post?

  • That photo was so sexy.

  • So again, it has that very grown up like kind of adult feel about it Usually.

  • How do we tell a little girl she looks
