Hello it's nice to meet you!

Recommended Posts

Hello my name is Leani. I want to learn sign and I want to make new friends. I hope my video wasn't too terrible. I am trying to learn sign through signschool.com online but learning through communicating with a language is the best way to learn. It's nice to meet you!

Great practice.  We can all help.  First little bit of advice.  The sign for MAKE in ASL does not work the way it does in English.  MAKE in ASL is literally to create something. So for making friends you would want to sign something like FRIENDS ME WANT NEW. You can use MEET, FIND, ACQUIRE.  Just not MAKE.  Make is an English word that has about 10 different uses in English.  In sign, the sign for make is literally to create something.

    • Hi everyone! I'm a new member. I've checked out this place, and it's awesome! I tried to upload a picture but, there to big lol. I'll keep trying. Anyway, I know some ASL. Pretty vague huh, my apologies. Long story short, there was a accident I lost me long term memory, and my short term is iffy. There is a but in there I promise lol. I use to know ASL. For some reason I am connecting with signing. I mean I understand it for the most part. I want to continue at it. I'm hard of hearing and I have Minerese Disease. I'm open to making some friends and chatting. Please know I'm a very patient person, hope you are.  Thanks for reading and hope to get some replies.  EM 😊  
    • Hi, It's not a poem or a song, but I figured that my post belonged in this creative section.  I thought users might be interested in a simple Happy Birthday ecard that I have animated using ASL.  If it is well received, I hope to do more in the future. Here's a link:  https://www.123greetings.com/birthday/happy_birthday/signing_birthday_bear.html I hope you like it.
    • Hello, I am a senior in high school,  learning ASL. I was talking to my teacher, when she mentioned that you can only get your name in ASL with someone deaf giving it to you. Is this true?
