Those verbs are highlighted in purple.

They want a good teacher

זיי ווילן א גוטן לערער


You have the blue table
דעם בלויען טיש האט איר

The boy has a crooked back
דאס יינגל האט א קרומען רוקן


The patients like the fine doctor
די קראנקע האבן ליב דעם פיינעם דאקטער

NOTE: The verb to like is said as "have love."

I need the yellow book
דאס געלע בוך דארף איך

NOTE: The word order here is basically "The yellow book have I."

Such a word order is common in Yiddish although you can have the English too of word order with the prnnoun and verb at the start.

The teacher needs a new book
די לערערין דארף א ניי בוך


Who knows the ugly people?
ווער קען די מיאוסע מענטשן


People like smart people
מע האט ליב קלוגע מעוטשן

NOTE: This could be translated in English as "One likes smart people."

The word 'מע' is like how "one" is used as a pronoun in English.
