What do these 2 signs mean??

Recommended Posts

1st sign: 4 fingers sweeping down the the cheek (side of face) and then meeting at the thumb (which is right at the jaw) (maybe repeated, maybe not)

2ns sign: Dominate middle finger reaching down and tapping twice the back of your closed fist. (the fingers and thumb of closed fist are facing down, back of fist is facing up)

It's from a conversation where someone is asking for directions to a classroom that they can't find. And the man being asked responds using these signs (among a couple others).

Thank you!

1st Sign: "Experience"

2nd Sign: "Touch" translation: "been to" (in ASL when you want to say you've been somewhere you sign "I've touched" the location.)(Often the sign is in conjunction with the sign "finish", as in "i've touch-finished that place")

    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
