My name is Emma, and in today's lesson, we are going to talk about personalities, we're going to talk about looks, we're going to talk about all the ways you can describe the girl of your dreams. Okay? The woman you like, the person you have a crush on. So, we're going to talk specifically about women and how guys can talk about them to their friends. So, imagine this: you're sitting in your English class and a new girl walks in, and immediately, you've fallen in love. You think this girl is great, maybe you want to go on a date with her, you tell your friends about it. So, your friend will ask you: "Oh, tell me what the girl's like. Tell me, what's she like?" Okay? "Tell me what she's like." And your response, you're going to tell them a whole bunch of descriptive words. So, I have some words about looks, I have some words about personality, and I have some other expressions. So, let's get started. Okay? One way you can describe someone you like, of course, is what they look like. You can say a girl is "hot". Okay? This isn't just temperature. We use it a lot. Well, guys use it a lot when they talk about girls. "Ah, she's hot." Okay? You can say: "She's gorgeous." Gorgeous, not georgeous, gor, gorgeous. It's like beautiful. Okay, so she's hot, she's gorgeous, she's "fine". You know in English, we say: -"How are you?" -"I'm fine"? Well, when you say a girl is fine, you're saying she's hot; she looks good. "Oh, she's cute.", "She's sexy.", "She's smoking hot." Or just: "She's smoking." Okay? All of these expressions mean-I'm going to draw a picture-when you see her, you feel like this because the way she looks is so good. You can also... Don't say this in front of the girl. Okay? Whatever you do, don't say this in front of the girl, but when you're with your friends, you can also give her a number. Some guys say: "Oh, she's a ten." Meaning: she's perfect. "She's a nine." She's still good. "She's an eight." Enh. If you like the girl, you're probably not going to say she's a three; that wouldn't be nice. But this is sometimes how guys talk to her friends, they say: "Oh, she's a ten. She's great." You can also describe a woman based on her hair colour. "Oh, she's a blonde." Okay? I'm a blonde. "She's a red-head." If the girl has red hair, she's a red-head. What about somebody with dark brown hair? We would call them "a brunette". Okay? So, we have "a blonde", and notice the "a", "a red-head", and-I guess I didn't write it-"brunette" is someone with brown hair. Okay? Also, when I said: "a ten", "a nine", "an eight", you need "a". All right, great. So, after you tell your friends about how beautiful she is. "She's gorgeous, she's hot, she's sexy." After you tell them this, you will probably talk about personality, if you don't talk about it first. So, personality, what are some personality words you might use to describe the girl you like? Well, this one isn't the nicest word, but some guys like girls who are "high-maintenance". These are the girls that they want the man to pay for everything, they expect presents every birthday. Well, not just birthdays; people expect presents on their birthdays. Maybe every day they want a present, every day they need you to tell them how much you love them. These are the girls that you have to work hard to keep. Okay? They're the girls that want you to buy them maybe a diamond ring, a diamond necklace. So you have to pay a lot of attention to these girls, they are high-maintenance. They are not easy to be with; you have to work hard. The opposite of high-maintenance is someone who is "low-maintenance". This is somebody who if you don't give them a present, they don't really care, it's okay. They're easygoing. They... You don't have to spend all your time with them. If you forget to call them on the phone, they're not going to get very angry. They're easygoing, they're low-maintenance. You can also call a girl "sporty". "Oh, she's sporty." You probably know the word "sport", if a girl is "sporty" it means she likes sports. You can also say a girl is "talkative". Someone who is talkative talks a lot. I'm a very talkative person. "Social", she's social. If she is social it means that she likes to be around people, she has many friends, she's always hanging out with her friends. She spends a lot of time with her friends, she's social. A girl can also be "laid-back". If she's laid-back it means she's very relaxed, she's easygoing, she's relaxed, she's low-maintenance. You don't feel stressed when you're with her, she's laid-back. Sometimes we will just say a girl, "Oh, she's cool. She's cool." Maybe she dresses nice. She's just a good person, easy to talk to, she's cool. A girl can also be "a tomboy". A tomboy is a girl who's very much like a boy in terms of the fact that she loves sports, maybe she doesn't wear dresses, she wears t-shirts, she's very athletic, she likes to drink beer and watch football. We would say she's a tomboy. We can also talk about party girls. If she's "a party girl", she loves to party. She goes to the parties and she drinks, she dances. She's a party girl, she loves to party. There's also a "girly girl". "Yeah, she's a girly girl" means she loves the colour pink, she loves shopping, she loves watching romance movies, she likes to do things that are very stereotypically girly. She likes girly things, she's a girly girl. You might also describe a woman, if you're adventurous, as "freaky". So it's an "e" sound, "freaky". If she's freaky, she's a little strange, but maybe that excites you. A freaky girl can be very exciting. We also have the words... When we're talking about specific... About the body, you can use the word: "killer". "Killer" you might think "enh, enh, enh", no, that's not what I'm talking about. When I say: "killer", I mean it means very good. Okay? In this case, "killer" means very good. So, you can say: "She has killer legs. She has a killer smile. She has a killer body." Okay? Guys often talk about looks, and so they will often say: "She has a killer", whatever. You probably wouldn't say something like: "She has killer feet", that might be a little strange. You would probably say: "Killer legs, body, smile". You can also, if you're very much in love with this girl, you think she's incredible, you can say: "She's something else." So: "She's something else." Meaning: you can't even describe her, she's just something else. I actually really like this one, I think this one's the sweetest. All right?
