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.

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
