How to describe a person in Dutch
This chapter will be all about describing a person in Dutch. Describing his or her face, body and character traits using adjectives, and colours.
Adjectives to describe someone in Dutch
To ask someone about their physical appearance, the question: 'Hoe ziet hij eruit?' (What does he look like?) can be used. To answer this question you can use 'Hij ziet er ... uit.' (He looks ...) or by using the verb 'zijn' (to be), you can find some adjectives you can use in the table below.
- 'Hij ziet er oud uit.' (He looks old.)
- 'Wij zijn lang.' (We are tall.)
- 'Jullie zijn gespierd.' (You are muscled.)
- 'Zij zien er klein oud.' (They look small.)
Personality traits can also be used to describe someone.
Parts of the face in Dutch
The table below will show some specific parts of the face in Dutch that you can describe by not only using the adjectives above but also the colours.
- 'Zij heeft blauwe ogen.' (She has blue eyes.)
- 'Wij hebben lang haar.' (We have long hair.)
- 'Zij hebben een kleine neus.' (They have a small nose.)
These parts of the face can also be replaced by the other body parts in Dutch.

Dutch language lessons from beginner to advanced
I teach: Dutch
Hi! I live in Germany since 2014, I live in the Frankfurt am Main area. I teach German to refugees since the beginning of 2017 and I have been... teaching Dutch at several language schools, at peoples homes and in-house at several companies. I passed the C1-level Test for German at the Goethe Institut. It is my goal to adapt my lessons as much as possible to the wishes of the student. This means that, besides offering regular learning methods, I am open to initiatives like talking about subjects that are of interest to the student, for example reading and discussing articles, watching and discussing educational videos and/or current happenings in the world.
