Describing a Person

I am forty years old, rather tall and I have blue

eyes and short black hair. I wear casual clothes as I teach

students in a relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy my job because I

get to meet and help so many different people from all over

the world. During my spare time, I like playing tennis which

I play at least three times a week. I also love listening to

classical music and I must admit that I spend a lot of money

on buying new CDs! I live in a pretty seaside town on the

Italian coast. I enjoy eating great Italian food and laughing

with the likable people who live here.
