Asl story for ASL 1 mod 5


Recommended Posts

This is what I understood:  I went to the kitchen cabinet and pulled out something, it smelled bad so I put it back, Jelly felt something, I washed my hands, took out chips?, I threw that away, I need to go to the store.

Some tips:  Keep your finger spelling level and calm.  You tend to bounce your fingerspelling, that makes it very hard to understand.  If you need to, use your other pointer finger to hold at the base of your palm to keep your hand steady.  

Don't swap hands.  In ASL you need to pick a dominant hand.  If you are right handed it's usually your right, if you're left handed it;s usually your left.  But pick one.  That is the hand that will be your dominant and you will use that for your fingerspelling.  It is bad form to switch hands when signing.  It makes things confusing for people when you swap.

    • Dear  for the  Deaf   
    • Hi!  I live in Jasper, Alabama and I am a preacher wanting to work in deaf ministry.  I myself am hard of hearing and am progressively going deaf.  I grew up with neighbors who were deaf and taught me to sign a little, then my cousin moved back home from Talladega School for the deaf and she helped me, but I left it for a long time.  I have been studying for a year now and I desperately need someone to video chat with so that I can go further.  I look forward to talking to you all, thank you.
    • I've been learning on my own for a few months as work permits....stopped for awhile, and back at it now with determination to complete ASL3 this year...I'm currently finishing Unit 2 of ASL 1. :)  Mostly using ASLTC and supporting with handpseak and signingsavvy. Following HandsUpSD, ASLStore, and DeafiningASL on Insta. Super lucky to have met an Auslan interpreter online who is now learning ASL (and already streets ahead of me!), so I get some practice and tips from her. Have a great day everyone! 
    • Alternatively, it seems as if we could send videos back and forth on this platform. i've done that before with an app called Marco Polo as well. You can find me on there @kylbrdfrd
