The Many Forms of Communication
by Raven Jones and Sloan Martin

There are many ways to communicate.
Hay muchas maneras de comunicar

There are two types of communication…verbal and non-verbal.
Hay dos tipos de comunicación verbal y no verbal.

Verbal communication is when I use my voice to communicate.
La comunicación verbal es cuando uso mi voz para comunicarse.

Non-verbal communication is when I use my different body parts to communicate.
Comunicación no verbal es cuando uso mis diferentes partes del cuerpo a comunicar.

When I am sad, I cry.
Cuando estoy triste llorar

I can communicate with my arms.
Puedo comunicarme con mis brazos.

When I’m upset, I fold my arms across my chest.
Cuando estoy disgustado, cruzarme de brazos sobre mi pecho.

I can use my fingers to communicate.
Puedo utilizar mis dedos para comunicarse.

When I want something, I point at it.
Cuando quiero algo, yo punto.

When someone else is communicating, I use my ears to listen.
Cuando alguien es que la comunicación de uso mis oidos para esuchar.

I also use my eyes to watch what my friends when they are communicating through sign language.
Yo tambien uso mis ojos ver que mis amigos dicen, cuando estan comunicado con la lengua de seña.
