Learning to describe yourself.

The Cúpla Focal badge oral examiner, and a test is of course optional, will ask you to describe yourself by saying

Cuir síos ort féin

Describe yourself

Cuir síos ort féin

This will normally require a simple physical description of yourself rather than describing your personality.
