I am handsome with my black hair and slim body

I am 170cm and weigh 60kg; I have brown hair and brown eyes; my complexion is fair.

I am 175 cm tall and weight is 70 kilograms, I have dark hair and looks handsome.

I'm 170 cm tall and I have ginger hair. My friend, Tina, is taller than me. She has dark, short hair. She is older than me.

I am 175 cm tall. I have dark hairs. I am 30 years old.

I've never heard of ginger as a colour. My dictionary says it's light brownish orange... Uhnn, it's still vague to me. If I saw light orange colour, I'd have no difference from "ginger" colour, I think.

Hello Tomoaki Hachiya,

We have many words to describe colours and it's often more a question of which we use for certain things rather than certain colours. For example, 'ginger' is quite rare apart from when we want to describe the colour of a person's hair or the colour of certain cats. We would not really use it to describe the colour of a car, for example.


Best wishes,
