Feel free to add details about this imaginary student. 1. Chandler’s looks Sample: Chandler’s unusual appearance helps me to recognize him from a hundred yards away. He tends to walk with his shoulders back and chin stuck out in front, and he is quite tall for his age, which makes him stand out among his classmates. His dark hair is always combed back but is fairly short and not too wavy, and his eyes have a sort of half-twinkling, half-questioning look. He likes to wear dark shirts. 2. Chandler’s character Sample: Chandler is not very outgoing. He is friendly to newcomers but does not go out of his way to make new friends. When with people, he lets others start the conversation, and will laugh at their jokes but seldom tells any himself. He seldom sings songs in public, only humming or whistling alone as he walks. Even when he feels bored in class, he will show it with politeness. 3. Chandler’s interests Sample: Chandler is the artistic rather than athletic or intellectual type. He likes collecting stamps and enjoys making posters. Favoring music, he often spends hours at home playing records. He also plays trumpet in the band. In contrast, he hates math very much and does not go in much for sports either.
