Through interactive play, our words come to life as the Animated Verb demonstrate word meanings with their highly animated antics. Young readers can interact with the words. They literally play with the words to make LAUGH laugh and JUMP jump.

Animated Verb provided 98 most common verbs in English, Germany, Spain and France with A-Z alphabetical order. You can spell it, learn it and play with it in each of 4 languages. Every verb is spelled and pronounced by pure and native teachers, and animated by cute and vivid animations!
