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 hello! I'm new to the forum. I was born hard of hearing, but only recently learned about the Deaf/HoH community and American Sign Language. I attend two schools and take ASL classes at my local community college. I love signing because it makes communication easier/enjoyable/understandable for me and I regularly attend Deaf socials/events because I enjoy making new friends. This summer, I took an amazing opportunity to study abroad for six months, but am now worried about not having the opportunity to retain everything I've learned thus far and feeling isolated again. Hence, I joined this forum. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks!~
