    Ella es pequeña y le gusta cocer.

    Este es mi padre.

    Este es mi hermano.

    Short and small is the same thing, I think.

    That's all I'm certain of, as it's not my mother language nor I'm learning it.

    Todo esta bien, a excepcion de esta y las que dijo Jax:

    (she is short and she likes to cook)

    Ella es chaparra y le gusta cocinar.

    Actually, I would suggest using "Ella es baja" for She is short. Your teacher most likely doesn't expect you to use chaparra.

    Tip: mflo whenever your not certain of how to type a certain spanish word, just go to www.google.es and in most of times, if you put any word wrong it will say "did you mean?" or "Quizás quiso decir:" and it will say how the word is written. Most of times =X

    I thought chaparra was slang? I wouldn't recommend to use it in formal speaking, but I think I'm too late when I say this. I would use "baja".
