Helpful website PSL signs

Recommended Posts

In Portugal we use this website to learn signs and there are several other languages in it, because it's also a translator  https://spreadthesign.com/pt.pt/search/ I remember seeing asl and bsl there too! Do you guys use it? Unfortunately they don't have many resources and can't add all existing signs, but I really like it! It's made by the Deaf Associations here and the University of Porto- Faculty of Psychology and Educational Sciences. There's also a map with signs for places and sentences. Please keep in mind, not all signs have the corresponding translation. For example, deaf people in portugal say: "name mine silvia" and not "my name silvia" they also say "beach I go" instead of "I'm going to beach" therefore the sentence structure is different than asl :( Thank you! I am so happy to find this asl forum I couldn't wait to tell you this until tomorrow! Here it's late 😂 Bye everyone!

That's great to hear about the website you mentioned, spreadthesign.com! It's fantastic to have a resource that allows people to learn different sign languages, including ASL and BSL. The inclusion of 3D signs adds another dimension to the learning experience. It's important to recognize that having a resource allowing people to learn different sign languages, including ASL and BSL, is fantastic each sign language may have its own unique grammar and sentence structure, as you mentioned with Portuguese Sign Language. Understanding these differences can enhance communication and foster cultural understanding. Thank you for sharing this valuable resource with us! Have a good night!

    • I made an ASL discord server. It has a teen only area and an adult area as well as sections for beginners, intermediate, advanced, and fluent as well as a mixed level and age area. I hope to see y’all there so that we learn, practice, and grow together.   https://discord.gg/CmQrzAhf 
    • I just got 45! I'm getting really good I feel! I always like to find a good speed, then just read off the letters as they come up, and spell the word, then once i'm good at recognizing what letter it is, I try to pronounce the word as it comes through, I find that helps the most when it comes to learning with this game! hopefully I can get to 50 in 2 mins by the end of the week. 
    • Hi Raf! Nice to meet you. This is definitely the right place to learn sign, but I also heavily recommend Learn How To Sign on YouTube for the first basic beginner signs and sentences. Meredith, the host, is an excellent educator and does a great job. Good luck!
    • Nice! i really do recommend this site for receptive spelling practice, its really good to be able to read signs, and i use a word generator occasionally to practice my own fingerspelling, i generate a word and spell it out, for accuracy and a little speed. if you ever wanna practice feel free to shoot me a message!
