Usually, the first thing everyone notices about each other is their facial features. How their face looks like, what shape their head is, are they good looking or beautiful and so on. So, how do you describe the face and head and other key features of someone in Chinese?
In this Podcast, you will learn:
1) How to talk about different parts on your face and head
2) The measuring words for each feature
Chinese words and phrases mentioned in this Podcast:
一双眼睛：A pair of eyes
Cultural note: In recent decades, “big eyes” and “double eyelids” have been promoted as the “standard measure of beauty” for females in China. Whilst this is purely personal choice, more and more Chinese today are more open to plastic surgery for feature adjustment, and such business is booming in China.
眉毛: Eye brows
一条眉毛：One eye brow
一根头发：A hair Grammar note: As you can see, the words to quantify different parts of the face are not the same. Be sure to listen to them a couple of times and, with practice, you will get used to them.
