This is  a simple language lesson. The pictorials are very basic. 

You can’t see his tattoos either, as far as I can tell. 

It is also true that, as a generalisation, French people are somewhat more direct with such descriptions than many in the English speaking world. There are cultural differences, not just language differences. Such descriptions are not necessarily meant, seen nor taken as insulting in everyday French. 

‘Pot-bellied’ is a reasonable way to translate into English the French expression ‘ avoir du ventre ‘.

Bonjour Johanna,

The illustration is not entirely representative of the content of this exercise and therefore there will be differences. It is only there as a source of inspiration and to help users visualise the content of the exercise without being 100% accurate. Although, I do understand your point of view and we have added a little note explaining all this.

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !
