I have learned to say and recognize these words in ASL sign Language.



I spend about two three hours a day studying ASL, I do a couple of lesions in the morning before work and then at work I study it on my morning brake time and lunch time, then at knight I study it right before bed. All that studying is paying off.

These are the words I know how to say and recognize.
The ASL sign for Turtle is pretty funny.

Is there a place near you where you can take ASL classes? The sentence structure is SO VERY different from English. It's the natural sentence structure of those who are deaf/hoh. ASL makes SENSE when you're deaf, but turn the structure around and it doesn't make as much sense. Also, learning from a book, or online, is TOUGH! It's much easier to learn in a class. Some school districts will even pay for the parent's classes. I'm an interpreter, by the way, not just another parent who signs. (though my daughter who has Down Syndrome is HOH, and we've always signed with her. ) Good luck to you in your learning. If you ever have a question, don't be afraid to drop me a note to ask. My direct email is deanleah at comcast dot net

Yes the sentence formation of ASL is very different I have only been studying for about three weeks now. So I haven’t formed any sentences yet because I just have begun to learn the signs. I am also studying Chinese and the sentence structure of ASL seems to be closer to Chinese then English.
Like in English you would ask. “Do you like the tea?” and in Chinese you would ask, “You Tea like?” Or “Tea you like?” I have so much to learn about the deaf culture, Lori and I are going to a meeting of the Arkansas Hands and voices on February 7th so we should be able to find out a lot of information am the meeting.
