This is a hard exercise because it's difficult to talk about ourselves. But I'll try. I'm a happy person, I'm always smiling. I'm very curious, I like to read and to watch movies I love comedy movies are the best. Physically, I'm very tall this is my main feature (or principal characteristic, I'm not sure about it), I have long and black hair, my eyes are black, that's enough! :D

Very good, nearly perfect!

But is it better to say: my main feature or  my principle characteristic?

main would be the most common espression.  Also used would be primary.  Feature or characteristic would both be correct.

This is a hard exercise because it's difficult to talk about ourselves, but I'll try. I'm a happy person, always smiling and very curious. I like to read and watch movies. I love comedy movies, they are the best. Physically, I'm very tall with long black hair and dark eyes. That's enough! :D

Well done Josy and well written. Remember, never start a sentence with the word 'but', it's a FANBOY (check the topic in the discussion group). Whether your height is a main characteristic is purely subjective, so it depends on the view of each person, so there is no need to write this, the reader will determine this themselves. Try to keep your writing short and direct to the point (concise). I'm being picky, it was good!

Thanks Trent, I really appreciated your comments about my exercise. there were so many mistakes (rsrsrs...).

Well, I realize that I need to check the topic in the discussion group again. We Learn  only with repetition, isn't it?

I know the height is something purely subjective, but believe me when I tell you that my height is my main characteristic, I already heard about this a lot (hahahha). Everybody told me this (hahahaha) and people say, for exemple, "Do you know Josy? that tall girl" (rsrsrsrsrsrs) it's true. It's not common girls as tall as me in my city, (hahahahaha). Sometimes i got shy because this!

Thanks again and be picky! :D

Obrigada Trent, eu realmente gostei dos seus comentários sobre o meu exercício. Houve tantos erros (rsrsrs. ..).

Bem, eu percebi que eu preciso olhar o tópico no grupo de discussão novamente. Nós aprendemos com a repetição, não é?

Eu sei que a altura é algo puramente subjetivo, mas acredite em mim quando eu digo que minha altura é a minha principal característica, eu já ouvi muito sobre isso (hahahha). Todo mundo me diz isso (hahahaha) e as pessoas dizem, por exemplo, "Você conhece Josy? Aquela garota alta" (rsrsrsrsrsrs) é verdade. Não é comum meninas tão alto quanto eu na minha cidade, (hahahahaha).

Hey Josy, don't be too hard on yourself, it was still very well written. I guess you are saying that your height is your most predominant or obvious feature, but still it does depend on whose point of view. I mean for me, it is your smile and dark hair, then again I haven't seen you stand up in person, so maybe it would be different. I do tend to focus on a person's eyes and smile though. :) talk soon my friend, I hope.
