Tangled: Adjectives, Describing People

This awesome activity was provided by a reader, Fabiana de Souza. Thanks, Fabiana, for sharing such a creative exercise.




My name’s Fabiana. I’m Paranaense but I live in Sorocaba – São Paulo.
I love studying and teaching English. It’s something that makes me really happy.
I work at Dialeto Idiomas (http://ift.tt/2qirCWe) and I use Claudio’s website a lot (I’m a big fan).
Enjoy your studies everybody. The magically long-haired Rapunzel is the missing daughter of a Queen and King.  She was kidnnapped by Mother Gothel and raised as her daughter in a high tower in an isolated area. The adventure begins when Princess Rapunzel meets Flynn Rider. I really like this movie and I watch it every single week 🙂
