Trust me, itu adalah salah satu cara agar kalian bisa lebih natural, lebih lentur, lebih terbiasa dalam berbahasa Inggris.

As for this matter, maka tema kita kali ini ialah “verbs of hand movements” alias kata-kata kerja yang berkaitan dengan gerakan-gerakan tangan.

Lantas, apa saja gerakan-gerakan tangan yang hendak kita bahasa Inggriskan kali ini? Well, let’s have a look at the examples below:

It means that you move your hand(s) to either say hi/hello, bye or just to attract someone’s attention you tend to wave.

Scratch (kukur-kukur, menggaruk)
It means touching skin movements by using your finger tips or finger nails, especially when you’re itchy.

Punch (ngantem, memukul, menghantam)
It means you hit someone/something by using your fist or close hand.
