Learning from Mistakes
After posting last week I realized that things got kind of messy and confusing so for those of you who tuned in again, thank you! Here’s a video of me doing each of the signs above individually in order.
Put it Together
After learning the words individually it’s time to figure out how to put words into sentences. That’s one thing that has been really interesting is that 2-3 signs can make a full question and response. Once again learning from mistakes (oops) here is a video of the sentences I’m saying which I will first say in English before signing for clarity.
- Hey, what’s your name?
- Are you married?
- Do you have children?
- How many sisters do you have?
- What is your mom’s name?
- Is your dad dead?
- Where do you live?
- Is this his/hers/theirs?
- How do you sign the word “we”
- Is your name B-O-B?
- Are you divorced?
- How many brothers do you have?
- Do you have a sister?
- Spell your dad’s name slowly?
- Have you met my brother?
- What is your wife’s name?
- Is your sister single?
- What is your grandma’s name?
- How do you sign ‘they’?
A lot of the terms I used this week were very binary (male and female). But in my learning, I found this video on genre inclusive signs. Please check it out!
