Learning English vocabulary words is very important and one of the first things you need to learn is a lot of verbs - or action words. They describe things we do as well as how we feel. You may already know some of these words but there are a lot of verbs here so perhaps you will learn something new. If you need suggestions on how to learn English words and which ones to learn first, please check out the main vocabulary page here. There are also a many other vocabulary lists (with videos and pictures) for other subjects.
I've tried to pull together a lot of different pictures to help you remember these words.
Learning English vocabulary is easier when you also hear the words pronounced so the video provides a chance to hear and see each word. Be sure to speak out loud after the short pause to practice your pronunciation.

It's also helpful to see words in context and each month I write an article in which I highlight and provide definitions and pronunciation guidance for many new words. If you haven't signed-up click here - you'll see a sample newsletter article as well.
Learning English vocabulary takes practice and I hope this list was helpful. Do you know many of these words? How can you practice learning verbs?
I suggest you say the verb when you're doing the action. You can print out this page and make flashcards with the picture on one side of the card.
