Describir una Persona – Verbo Ser (to be)

We usually use the verb ‘ser’ (to be) to describe people’s appearance and character.  This verb is a ‘key verb’ which means that it is very important and you need to learn it off by heart.  Always learn verbs in the order shown below (I, you, he/she/you polite, we, you pl., they/they/you polite pl.)

Learn the verb ‘ser’ and then translate the sentences below into Spanish:
