Learn Sign Language with Jazzy: Alphabet and Colours | Jazzy
August 7, 2019
Hi Welcome to Learn Sign Language with Jazzy. This is my first sign language video; teaching you all how to sign. Most of you are confused with what sign language I’m using like ASL or BSL etc. I’m using BSL which is British Sign Language. I’m British, not American. I’m telling you that because some of you thought that I’m American. BSL (British Sign Language) and ASL (American Sign Language) have some similarities, but they are quite different like ASL only uses one hand and BSL uses two hands. BSL and ASL are quite have quite a lot of differences. Some signs look the same but have different meanings like BSL sign for ‘What’, is ‘Where’ in ASL. Strange. Why am I teaching you all how to learn sign? Because my hearing viewers want to learn to sign. Some of them asked me to do a sign video, I thought I’ll make sure I find the time to film a sign video. Finally, today is the time to teach you guys to sign! I’m so looking forward to teaching you all. I’m teaching you BSL (British Sign Language). So, today I’m going to teach you some of the basic signs so it’ll be easier for you all. I don’t want to teach you quite hard signs, because you will need to build your confidence with sign language. I know it might be not easy to learn sign. Sometimes people pick up sign easily but others find it difficult. Everyone is different. Today, I’m going to teach you two different categories. one is alphabet and another one is colour. I’m going to start with alphabet so you will understand better with colour signs. I feel like this is a BSL class. I’m really excited to teach you guys. I would love to see hearing people learning sign. It will be fantastic for the community. Hearing and deaf people have difficulty communicating so learning sign is really helpful. It’ll give them the confidence. So I’m going to start with A,E,I,O,U the vowels, then the rest of the alphabet afterwards. So you will understand better. This is A, E, I, O, U. Now, I’m teaching you the rest of the alphabet now. Quite a lot of people that are learning sign, sign this as a B. This is wrong. This is the right one. ASL uses the full hand C, BSL only use the two fingers C. I’m showing you this so you could see the J clearly. But you could sign J in relaxing way. Some of the learners sign Q in another way which is wrong. This is the right one. Sign this like as a cross. That’s it. The alphabet is now finished, was it easy or hard? Now, I’m going to move on with colour. Red, Red, Red. Blue. Green, Green, Green. There are two signs for Yellow. You could pick this or other one. White, White, White. Brown, Brown, Brown. There are two signs for Purple. You could pick one what you prefer. Pink, Pink, Pink. This is my favourite colour yay! Black, Black, Black. Cream, Cream. Grey, Grey, Grey. Gold, Gold. Silver, Silver, Silver. I think this is it. I can’t think of another colour. Sorry if I’ve missed some colours. So far, I’ve been teaching you the alphabet and colours. I’ve finished now. I hope you’re enjoying learning BSL. I definitely will do another sign language videos. Comment in the description box; what you would like to learn other category signs like animals etc. Please can you let me know. I can’t believe that Christmas is coming very soon time flies. Christmas is next Sunday..! I’m really looking forward to Christmas. A lot of you guys have asked if I know ASL. I know a bit of ASL like the alphabet etc. I really want to learn International Sign Language because it’s interesting to learn different sign language from many different countries. I will learn one day. Sorry if I didn’t use my voice as I have a sore throat. I had a bug recently. BSL is my first language anyway. Thank you for watching! I hope you all have a lovely Christmas. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2017. I hope you enjoyed this video. Byeee!
