How To Learn Sign Language

ASL Signs for SUMMER, HOT, and SWEAT, + Practice sentences!


Hi, today I’m going to teach three signs:
summer, hot, and sweat. What do they mean? Summer, hot, and sweat! Well, now you’ve seen them already, but I’ll show you again slower: First one, summer – the “1” handshape to an “X” – summer. I’ve also seen it signed just once: SUMMER, like that. And that’s sometimes means “because”, so be careful. Context can make it clear, but SUMMER, you can remember it you’re wiping sweat off your brow. SUMMER. Second: hot or heat.
“Bent 5” – hot, it’s like you’re maybe eating a hot food and then you kind of
push it away: hot. Hot. number three: sweat. You can modify it a little bit and
change your facial expression based on the situation. So now I’ll show you three
sentences using those words. Ready? You can find the sentences in this video’s
description, it has the English sentences as well as ASL. Ready? Number one… Okay, again: SUMMER, my favorite season, why?
I enjoy hiking, swimming, the beach, I like Number two… Again, you can sign an area or room…
either or. Again: Here, it’s hot.
Do you mind the AC turn on? Number three… Again: yesterday temperature 90
degrees Wow.. I went out running. When I finished,
sweating! So I hope that helps you practice those signs! Again: Summer, hot,
and sweat. For more summer signs, I have a different video you can find it right
over here!>>Thank you for watching. I hope that you
enjoy your summer!

  • Hi Meredith, I started to learn ASL a month ago, I'm so glad I found you. Your YouTube videos have a lot more colorful and have positive energy than others, I enjoy learning from you.

    Temporary/permanently
    Directly/indirectly
    Alive/dead
    Easy/difficult
    Inside/outside
    Already/not yet

    –similar looking signs to me–
    Rather/Prefer/like
    Number "6"/finger-spell "W"/Wednesday
    Feel/tend-to/like
    Busy/practice/tv/movie
    Check in/out (hotel)
    Number "20"/finger-spell "G"
    Tell/ask/say
    When/to
    (Sports) Play (game)/player (a person)
    A person/the person
    Many/Much, a lot
    Same old things/still

    Thank you so much! I look forward to watching new videos from you.

  • Lost most hearing military service connected. Now 62 age. Cochlear implant 2 years ago. Need to learn ASL. Your videos with Closed Captions (CC) are the only ones that help me learn. I need to read as you teach. Without CC I'm lost. More CC videos Please! Thank you for the free lesson videos. πŸ‘πŸ½
