“Yes. He was tall, with black hair, and he was wearing a red jacket.”

To describe something is to give more details about it so that the listener can picture it more accurately. It doesn’t have to be its visual appearance, though. You can describe someone’s personality (“He’s always cheerful”) or the story of a movie (“It’s really sad”).


何かを describe することは、聞き手がより正確に想像できるように詳しく話すことです。見た目だけではありません。その人物の性格(彼はいつも元気です)や、映画のストーリー(すごく悲しい)などにも使えます。
