 単語 for describing the appearances of people in Japanese

Lets have a look at some example description sentences now and break down the 文法 with these individual sentences.

In this sentence we are describing someone’s height. See how は is used after 彼 to indicate who we are talking about.

彼は背が低いです
Kare wa se ga hikui desu.
He is short.

This next sentence is essentially the opposite way around, here we are using the same grammatical set up but using 高い instead of 低い

彼は背が高いです
Kare wa se ga takai desu.
He is tall.

As we are directly talking about the girl in this sentence you can just use は to indicate we are talking about “her” and then simply add the 形容詞 after. です has been used after the ii 形容詞 文をもっと作るために 丁寧.

彼女は細いです
Kanojo wa hosoi desu.
She is skinny.

Same here, take a look at the sentence closely, it’s the same grammatical set up.

妹は強いです
Imouto wa tsuyoi desu.
My little sister is strong.

This last sentence is similar to the first two, because we are talking about a specific feature of the person. We use は to first clarify who we are talking about and then が to mark the specific thing we want to describe.

マイクさんは髪が黒です
Mike san wa kami ga kuro desu.
Mike has black hair.

A great bit of advice is to read all of these sentences aloud a fair few times just to ensure that you understand the patterns.

Well guys, that’s is, we’ve now come to the end of todays online Japanese article from Bondlingo. We really hope that you’ve enjoyed it and got a lot from it.
