Sign Language Basics : Sign Language: Introducing Yourself
August 9, 2019
Now, if you were to meet a deaf person for
the very first time, typically, there are a number of things that you do to introduce
yourself. It’s a very important aspect of deaf culture that, when you meet a deaf person,
it will need you to learn more sign language from that deaf person. First, I’d like to
start with introducing yourself and how you will say your name. Watch me. My name is R-A-C-H-E-L.
So you would finger spell your name. I’ll do that again. My name is R-A-C-H-E-L. After
you spell your name, you would say nice to meet you. This is the for nice, meet, you.
We’ll do that again. Nice to meet you. I’ll go ahead and back up and start over. Hello,
my name is Rachel. Nice to meet you. So, you’ll practice finger spelling your name and then
those signs for nice to meet you. Okay, good job.
