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")

    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
