    Could you correct the sentence?

    Hi teachers,
    Is this sentence correct for a physical description? Can I omit the second 'a little'? I don't think so. Am I right?
    He is tall, a little fat and a little bald. He also wears glasses.

    Thanks in advance.

    You need to repeat 'a lttle'; the first one will not extend to 'bald'. You could change the second to 'slightly'.
