Wow, it’s interesting to learn Chinese in this way!

I know some other simple verbs suitable for kids’ Chinese learning such as: “说,” “看,” “吃;” but there’re so many! Can you tell me more every-day verbs?

Verbs like 走 (zǒu) (to walk), 跑 (pǎo) (to run), 穿 (chuān) (to wear), 读 (dú) (to read), 做 (zuò) (to make/ do), and 笑(xiào) (to laugh), are used all the time.
