LearnSigns 16: Basic Verbs

Along with the scattered verbs you have learned in previous lessons, here is a lesson with some of the more common verbs. As you will learn, many verbs can be guessed at by doing the action that accompanies the verb. This won’t work in all cases, but many times it does. And if the word you are mimicking isn’t exactly the right sign, it may be close enough for your friends to guess what you are trying to communicate.

Words learned in this lesson:

  • Speak or Talk
  • Tell or Say
  • Hear or Listen
  • See
  • Look
  • Eat
  • Drink
  • Smell
  • Walk
  • Sit
  • Stand
  • Fall
  • Run
  • Play
  • Silly
  • Like
  • Want
