"The English Adventurer"

How do you describe someone who is ambitious in English?

This summer and fall we have been teaching you how to go deeper when you describe personality.

We showed you how to describe someone who is an extrovert or introvert in English.

We also showed you how to describe a mean person in English.

Today we’ll show you four ways to talk about someone who has goals and dreams in English.

Someone who is ambitious:

  • Driven: Something is driving the person. Something is pushing them forward.
  • Motivated:
  • Goal oriented:
  • Hard working:
  • Determined: To stick to your guns, to keep following and moving towards your goal.


Someone who is not ambitious:

  • Lazy
  • A slacker
  • Passive
  • Lost


Now describe yourself or your friends and family members in the comments.

Who do you know who is motivated, determined, or goal oriented?
