Body Parts

I'm not going to talk about every body part in this lesson.  For information concerning detailed body parts, I would suggest a book that is solely covering body parts.  Instead, we are going to cover various types of conversations and sentences most commonly used in standard English communication.

Let's first list the different body parts I will cover in this lesson:

Arm, Forearm, Elbow, Wrist, Hand, Finger, Knuckles

Leg, Calf, Thigh, Knee, Ankle, Toes

Head, Ear, Mouth, Nose, Eyes

Neck, Chest, Stomach, Back, Groin, Butt, Shoulder

The arm area

Here is a list of sentences most commonly used

"My arm hurts"

Remember you can change the word of arm to any of the other body parts.

"My wrist is sore."
"I sprained my wrist while I was playing tennis."

Sprain is to hurt the ligaments of a joint.  It is different than breaking a bone.  Breaking a bone is hurting the bone itself, and sprain is hurting the tissue that connects the bone.

"I can't bend my elbow that well."
"Your fingers are so long."
"My fingers are short and stubby."
"I like to crack my knuckles."
"My grandmother has arthritis so she can't move her hands well."
"I got a flu shot on my arm yesterday."
"I hate people who don't wash their hands after going to the bathroom."
"I broke my finger when I fell down the stairs."
