How to describe someone’s appearance

While describing someone’s appearance you can use the word شِكِل [shikil], which means form, shape, appearance.

For example:

  • شِكْله حِلو [shiklo Helou]– he looks beautiful
  • شِكْله مْرَتَّب [shiklo mrattab] – he looks neat

To say he is handsome, she is young etc. you just need to add the pronoun before the adjective.

  • هي حِلْوة [hiye Helwe] – she is beautiful
  • هي بِشِعة [hiye bishi3a] – she is ugly
