If you’re talking about something down a hallway that is near You would sign it like this, see my mouth If something isn’t too far, maybe halfway down You would do this with your mouth and point If something is far, you would do this Take the elevator for example, let’s pretend you have to go outside and it’s not too far If the elevator is outside and far away you would sign like this, indicating how far it is. And then if it’s just around the corner you would sign like this You want to try, oh, explain first. So, same with when you’re signing sizes You, When you’re signing things that are near to you You would sign Like that, so doing this with your mouth. If it was sort of medium distance You would sign And then if it was far, you would sign So that will show Sort of how, near, medium and far things are. Okay, so… Where’s the teachers office?
