What Is Your Best Female Friend Like?


This post is about describing a person and more specifically about describing a female friend.


Imagine you talking to a relative or a work colleague. You are talking about your friends. The other person wants to know about your best female friend and says: "what is your best female friend like?".

In Spanish, the other person could choose to be less formal and say:
¿Cómo es tu mejor amiga?

Alternatively, he/ she could choose to be a little bit more formal and say:
¿Cómo es su mejor amiga?


The answer is quite straightforward. Perhaps you want to give her:

  • Name.
  • Age.
  • Marital status.
  • Profession/ occupation.
  • Nationality.
  • His appearance.
  • Other characteristics

Here are some sample replies:
  • Se llama María (her name is María);
  • Está soltera (she is single);
  • Tiene treinta años (she is 30 years old);
  • Es maestra (she is a teacher);
  • No tiene hijos (she doesn't have any children);
  • Es alta (she is tall);
  • Es delgada (she is thin);
  • Es muy guapa (she is very good looking);
  • Es mexicana (she is Mexican)
  • Es baja (she is short);
  • Es un poco gorda (she is a little fat);
  • Lleva gafas (she wears glasses);
  • Es inteligente (she is intelligent)
  • Es trabajador (she is hard working)
  • Es simpática (she is pleasant/ likeable);

Now you should practise answering the question:
¿Cómo es tu mejor amiga?
