    Descriptions

    Hi everybody!

    I need some help. I am going to sit for an ELT examination next week and I would like to order my thoughts as regards descriptions of a house, a person, a city.

    I know I have to describe from the biggest details to the smallest ones but I want to have some hints to take into account at the time of writing.

    I will be very greatful if you can help me in any way.

    Thank you.

    If descriptions are your concern, you should revise adjectives.
