How To Learn Sign Language

Sign Language Basics : Sign Language: Essential Expressions

Next, we’ll go over some essential expressions.
Some commonly used phrases that someone might use after introducing themselves. Hello. What’s
up? I’m doing fine, etcetera. We’ll start now. Hello. Hello. Goodbye. Goodbye. What’s
up? What’s up? Fine. Fine. Thank you. Thank you. You’re welcome. You’re welcome. I understand.
I understand. This is very important to know when you’re communicating with a deaf person.
Because if you’re just learning sign language and you’re trying to keep up with the deaf
person, you’ll want to let them know that you’re following along. So you’ll use that
sign for “I understand” or you’ll nod your head that you’re not understanding if you
don’t understand. Please. Please. Okay, good job.

  • Usually there are different sign languages for different countries or regions, not necessarily for different spoken languages. Does that make sense?

  • Ever since I was little, I was forced to learn Exact, for no real reason but that my mother wanted me to know E instead of A. I'm watching this and finding that there isn't much of a difference, though where the differences lie do cause problems and why many people say ESL-users and ASL-users can't communicate. It's frustrating relearning this, but it's definitely going to be worth it. :3

  • I would trust the person signing just not the person interpreting (sp) I feel like she is messing up not saying exactly what the woman is signing in some videos

  • That sign at the end of the understand section, that the interpreter skipped over is "again". She was saying that it's ok to tell someone to sign something again with that sign.

  • thank you for the video's they are very helpful as a new signer. easy to follow along to and good use of repeating important frases and words

  • Hello,

    I like your videos. We have a signer in the building and I would like to say hello when I see him. I will use your video lesson to say hello and introduce myself today.

  • Yeah she definitely said "again" at the end. Way to be a terrible translator. Must be frustrating being deaf and people arent properly communicating for you.
