English term or phrase: I am quite tall,
when writing about your own appearence
rachel green
ich bin ziemlich groß
Explanation:
unfortunately i dont know the context, so e.g. in a novel it might be appropriate to use the term "hochgewachsen". however, in most cases the term is followed by the exact measurements and here the german word "groß" is in my opinion the best choice.
