Learning Verbs

Verbs are the actions words that make up the language. Go here, do this, don't do that, swim here, etc. They are actually the easiest to learn if they are accompanied by movement. When I have students learn verbs by moving with them. They pick them up right away.  Levanta el brazo, lift up your arm. There is a direct correspondence between the words and the movement. Kids get it very quickly, and I would say adults do as well. But when you try to learn the verbs through worksheets, it just doesn't happen.
