ASL week 2- finishing the Alphabet

Hey!

So, this is my second week of my learning project and my goal was to learn the second half of the alphabet and have it memorized. last week I got the letters A through L down and this week I thought I did a pretty good job of letters M through Z. Although when you guys watch the video, I’d love comments on how to make it better. Also, yes I know I need to work on getting it more memorized and fluid, but I am working on it!

This week for resources I looked at youtube videos just as I did last week. Although this week I wanted to try something more and I also look at just images of the letters. I enjoyed the images a little bit better because I like fast learning and find it takes longer on the video. So moving forward I may look for more, but with learning something such as this I think it would be wiser to focus on videos, the videos offer a good break down so I really get a good idea of what it is supposed to look like. So, I am kind of on a mixed though path right now.

I found this new website that has lessons set out week by week on what to learn, an order and all that fun jazz (kinda funny because I am Jas, but like didn’t write jazz to make it a pun, it just rolled off the tongue nice, haha). They have lesson one as body gestures and such, i am gonna work on those and I also mentioned I wanted to lean the 5 W’s this coming up week as well. So I will show you guys how those turn out then. I also mentioned that I was going to try out ASL learning apps, I came across this one and it looks good, so I am also going to try this out this week and I will let you know how it goes.

  1. Great job! I’m super impressed how much you have memorized already and how fast you went through the alphabet! Just wondering was there a person or situation that inspired you to learn ASL?

    1. Thank you! it was a actually a TV show that got me interested the first time, but then in my internship when I taught a 5 senses unit, there is an indicator on hearing adaptations and sign language was an option and I thought how cool it would be if I could teach my own class it one day, and if I ever hand a deaf students in my class how great of a relationship we would have it I could sign with them.

  2. Hey Jasmine! Your alphabet looks great. When I was learning the ASL alphabet, I found it most difficult to transition from one letter to the next without having “hand stutters,” but yours looks so smooth! If you’re looking for more resources, I found the website http://www.startasl.com really useful. I think it can also be fun to look up YouTubers that sign to songs! Looking forward to seeing more from you, great work!!
