Learning Project ASL #3 – What Day is it Anyways?

Welcome back to my third learning project blog if you have made it this far. Its nice of you to be joining me on my ASL learning journey.

This week I used two resources, Signing Savvy as well as an app off the iPhone App Store, called ASL. I have been trying to use several different resources, but it is a bit hard considering different resources give different signs for the same words. However, it is still helpful and I have been enjoying the process thus far.

Last week I decided to learn months, days, as well as please, thank you, and you’re welcome. Check it out and see my vlog below:

Thought out this week while learning these signs, I discovered that signing months, were is no specific sign, instead you sign the months like you would write them in short. For example: January – you would finger sign J-A-N, however for something short like March or shorter, you would sign the full word, for March you would finger spell M-A-R-C-H.

Near the end of the video, I discuss how there is no real way to sign you’re welcome, I learned this from several rescuers on youtube, and they all gave the three ways I show in my video. This is where I realized that youtube is wonderful to learn ASL, so if you are learning it too, search through youtube.

Next week I plan to learn signs to do with people and family, such as, family, parents, mom, dad, sister, brother, child, grandma, grandpa, boy, and girl. I also want to learn come conversation questions, such as ‘do you have any sisters/brothers?’, ‘are you single/married?’, ‘do you have children’, ‘where do you work?’, and ‘where do you live?’. These are good conversation starters, and considering I want to learn how to hold a conversation by the end of the semester, I figured these would be a great place to start.

Join me next week to see my next Vlog on ASL. #learningproject

  1. This is super cool! I love the video of yourself, and didn’t know there were apps available to help you learn. I learned the alphabet when I was in grade 8 and I still remember it today, so it’s definitely a worthy learning project as I think it’s something you’ll remember forever!
