    — obviously know nothing about Deaf culture. Deaf people do have their own language — actually there are many forms of sign language and ASL is considered seperate and discrete from english. It follows its own syntax etc. I'm sure someone deaf or hard of hearing would be more than happy that ppl are watching this video and trying to make an effort to bridge the gap in communication.

  • it seems that "thirsty" and "lust" are signed the same, am I wrong? the samething with "hungry" it looks like "desire"

  • Thanks so much for posting all these videos! I am a hearing person and want to learn ASL so that I can talk to any deaf or hard of hearing person! Why ruin your chance of making a great friend just because you don't know their language 🙂
