 Read the following paragraph. Notice that this paragraph describes the person who is writing the introductory paragraph.
 Hello, my name is James. I'm a programmer and I come from Chicago. I live in Seattle with mywife Jennifer. We have two children and a dog. The dog is very funny. I work at a computer company in the city. The company is very famous and successful. Our daughter is named Annaand our Son is named Peter. She is four years old and he is five. We like living and working inSeattle.
Tips for Writing a Personal Description about Yourself 
Use 'come from' for the city or country where you were born. Use 'live' for the city whereyou currently live.
Use the present simple tense to explain what you do every day.
Use 'have' or 'have got' to speak about your children, pets, etc.
Use 'a' the first time you mention something. For example,
 I live in a house.
Then use'the' after the first time you write about it. For example,
 I live in a house. The house is inSeattle.
Remember to use
he, his, him
for boys and men and
 she, her, her 
for girls and women.Use 'our' when speaking about the whole family.
Use 'like doing' when speaking about hobbies.
 Read the following paragraph. Notice that this paragraph describes a different person than the person who is writing the introductory paragraph.
Mary is my friend. She is a student at a college in our town. The college is very small. She livesin an apartment in the center of town. She doesn't have a dog or a cat. She studies every day andsometimes works in the evening at a small shop. The shop sells gift items like postcards, gamesand other small items. She enjoys playing golf, tennis and walking in the countryside.
Tips for Writing a Personal Description about a Friend
Remember to add 's' to the present simple tense when writing about other people.
In the present simple tense, 'doesn't' takes the 's' in the negative form. Remember to use'doesn't + verb' in the negative.
Use
 sometimes, often, never,
etc. before the main verb in a sentence.
Remember to use
he, his, him
for boys and men and
 she, her, her 
for girls and women.
Use 'enjoys doing' when speaking about hobbies. It's okay to connect a few verbs usingcommas, but place 'and' before the final verb in the list when speaking about someone'shobbies. For example, She enjoys playing tennis, swimming and riding horses.
Exercise
1.Write a paragraph about yourself. Try to use a variety of verbs and 'a' and 'the' correctly.2.Write a paragraph about someone else. You can write about a friend or a someone fromyour family.3.Compare the two paragraphs and note the differences in pronoun and verb use. For example,
 I live in Seattle BUT She lives in Chicago.My house is in a suburb. BUT His house is in the city.
While old-fashioned, I still find what I call "grammar banging" (intensive grammar reviewsheets) useful at the end or beginning of the year. The end of year calls for exam preparation andthe beginning calls for some review to raise awareness of what has already been learnt and where problems still lie. The sheets provided in these "grammar banging" reviews are very effective because each question focuses on one important, specific area.
