How To Learn Sign Language

Teaching Baby Sign Language | American Sign Language Nyle DiMarco


Hello, before we begin. I actually wanted to give a gift to you, my Peta. First off, congratulations on becoming a mother! Your baby is so fortunate to have you and Maks. I love that I knew that your baby was also dancing in your tummy when the two of us were dancing to our final our final freestyle. Why would you teach your baby signs? Did you know that research has proven that if you teach your baby how to sign it would improve their cognitive and emotional development. You teaching your baby how to sign will also increase their rate of verbal development and also at the same time it will help you two bond and make that bond even stronger. So now lets begin! We are done here. I wish you the best of luck moving forward! I love you!

  • Aww, Nyle – what a lovely baby gift!
    Hey, we have your Tee Shirt (three of us) so sometimes we
    dress "Nyle style" ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Thank you, Nyle! You are the reason that I started learning sign in American AND British. Thanks to you, when I started my new job, I was the only person able to completely communicate with a lovely man in the factory who is deaf. I have totally changed his working days. Everyone else there have started to learn and are more confident to try out some new signs and actually have a conversation with him. He is soo much more happier to go to work and feel involved. That's all I could ask for. Thank you soo much! I love continuing to learn with you!

  • Nyle! You are the reason why my friend, sister and I take sign language private lessons from a tutor every week! We are determined to learn ASL completely! Thank you for inspiring us! โค๐Ÿค—

  • Could you put a test at the end? I'd love to see you sign and then have to ascertain what you are saying before I get the correct response. It would add another layer to this.

  • My 3 years old niece told that you are a great teacher, and that she loved the sign of love and mom ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ˜˜

  • My sister taught her son some of these signs! I remember using milk, water, and all done. It was awesome to be able to communicate before he could really talk! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • I'm nowhere near being a parent, but when I watched a video that said babies can communicate before they're even a year old (I'm trying to find the video but failing), I'm committed to doing this. I've been teaching myself to sign for the last 4 years, and only recently have I been able to actually put it to practice thanks to a local Starbucks being run by deaf employees. I go on a biweekly basis just to practice signing… And I don't really like Starbucks drinks!

    Thank you for this video! <3

  • ๐Ÿ˜‡All should learn sign language.. expressing your feeling through silence.. wowww.. I love your smile Nyle.. keep smiling.. ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Some of the signs are the same as in Libras (Brazilian Sign Language).
    I was enchanted with SORRY.

  • My friend taught her hearing son baby sign and there was an amusing exchange when he was signing that he was finished but signed "dead." Kinda awkward to ask why her 1yr old was signing dead as it was getting weird. Apparently he'd been confusing the two since the loss of a goldfish.

  • i knew all of these my son is almost 3 and knows asl he cant talk do to some medical problems he has so we are learning with him…thank you so much you are so inspiring.

  • I have been learning signed language but signed english at first. Since last year 2016, me and my student have been learning ASL and its awesome. The ASL material that we do have is more geared to smaller children and my student is
    not impressed or interested, its difficult to get him to like or enjoy ASL video's to help him learn his language and his culture

  • does the number of times the motion is done to get the full meaning of the word shown? With thank you, it's just once, but with diaper you motioned three times? Trying to learn and want to know if this is crucial ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

  • Danish sign language is my first language ever!!! my parents are deaf (and 3-5 generations back, I'm the only hearing…) I couldn't ask for better parents! ๐Ÿ˜ now I'm here to teach American sign language! and both American and danish sign language have a lot of similar signs! I love your videos! ๐Ÿ˜

  • thanks for sharing, but how do we start to teach a baby? Can u show us how so that I can have an idea how to teach or show to my 8mths baby, many thanks (^^)

  • So awesome thank you for this! My child currently knows the signs more and milk, can't wait to teach him what you just taught me! My husband and I were cheering for you the whole time on ANTM so proud of what you are doing for the ASL/deaf community! God is Good!

  • I just can't help but to love every single one of your videos! โ™ฅ But i do have to say that in my country is very difficult to find a place to learn LSP (which is the ASL but in Perรบ). Keep doing what you do!

  • Oh, MAN, I wish this had been around years ago when my boys were infants! I've seen some clips of babies only a few months old being specific enough to tell their mothers "more bananas please." You are doing incredible work with this. Even very young infants are capable of understanding far more than we ever realized before, and it is the work of people like you that help us communicate with these remarkable pre-verbal souls.

  • Hello Nyle, you are so AWESOMELY AWESOME. You've made me interested in taking a signing class. Much good health & happiness to you.

  • I joined a sign language group called LIS which is the Lingua Italiana dei segni – italian basically.. cause I really wanted to learn some sign language.. weird thing is they also have dialects so when I moved back to the South of Italy all the signs were different and even colors and basic things like good morning was different! why don't the death community work towards an international standard or am I just being racist/ignorant ??

  • Thanks for making this video, Nyle because I learned some new signs that I didn't know before.ย  I'm definitely an ASL beginner and don't know much about deaf culture, ASL signing, etc.ย  Whatever suggestions that you have for me in order to learn ASL and more about deaf culture, becoming friends with those in the deaf community, etc. would be most helpful!!ย  Peace and <3 my friend!!

  • When my niece was a baby her favorite sign was "more" . It was the only one she did bc she learned that she got stuff when she did it ! Hahaha

  • I've taught my daughter signs since she was born and it was such an amazing moment the first time she signed for milk the communication with signing and expressions are amazing! I've taken the time to learn them and teach them to my daughter! I watched you on americas next top model and started learning then! Thank you!

  • Well I just finished watching ANTM cycle 22 and got here ๐Ÿ™‚ I think everything you are doing is amazing ^_^ I believe it would awesome to learn sign language. I'm from Ecuador and I've been interested on learning it since a while ago (for different reasons)…of course ASL it's different (as it differs from one country to another…as any language) They say it is never too late to learn something new, so I will try ๐Ÿ˜€ even if I am a slow learner… especially following the speed of the movements, but practice is everything.
    Keep being so inspiring!! Good luck with everything ^_^

  • Keep making videos Nyle! I taught my 5 hearing grandchildren sign language before they could speak and we had wonderful communications that we otherwise couldn't have.

  • Nyle I have taught classes in a church for 5 years and I signed for every services till someone got jealous. She (over the deaf ministry) got me to go another part of the church and didnโ€™t have no one to signed to. I stayed in that part of church for 3 years and I wasnโ€™t happy. Right now I am attending to a different church and this Pastor knew me well and wants to have a โ€œDeaf Ministryโ€ and I will be over it. I am not good as you are Nyle. I have left you messages on Instagram but you never responded. And I need your help…if you can help please respond me back asap! Thank you ๐ŸคŸ๐Ÿป

  • Omg! You're the best! I am a physical therapist that work with babies from birth to 3 years old. Most of these babies/kids have delays in speech development. Learning baby sign language and teaching it to them definitely will ease and bridge that gap of. Communication. I love you man!

  • We taught my daughter some baby signs starting around 9 months. When she started talking (at 21 months), she was speaking in full sentences. She's now 6, her verbal skills blow away every adult who meets her, and she is reading 2 grade levels above her peers. We really never had the terrible twos tantrum phase because SHE COULD TELL US what she wanted and what she was thinking. It's amazing when your 10-month-old tells you she hears a dog outside or that she wants milk or a book.

  • Thank you sooo much for this video. I am a homeschool mom and though I know some very basic sign, I want my children and I to be fluent. Videos are so expensive to buy and most if the time so cheesy my smalls (4 and 6) get nothing from them. They are both super smart so they need to learn on a more adult level. My 19 year old took a semester in college of sign language. She lives in a city with a school for the deaf. She works as a waitress and the sugning has helped her so much. She wants to take more college classes on it. I can't wait to watch more of your videos. Thank you again.

  • Why isn't there one single sign language globally ? I mean, if you can't hear anyway, the native tongue wouldn't mater … or does it ? (Asking as a hearing one, who is interested in learning some signs, but doesn't know E whether to do it in "English" or "German" signs are signs without language, aren't they? … )

  • Hello, I've always been interested in learning ASL. When I was younger I leaned the alphabet from an encyclopedia. A friend who had a sister who was an audiologist taught me some basic sign to teach my daughter when she was 1 or 2 years old. At age 19 she still knows them (many are the ones you showed here) & I still find myself using 'no' when in public. LOL๐Ÿ˜Š

  • I love this! My three year old has learned most of these signs. When it's hard for him to verbally communicate he will sign.

  • Late commenting here, but I absolutely love love love these videos! Iโ€™m currently trying to learn ASL in college and your videos are so educational and entertaining. You rock, Nyle! ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Hi can everyone check out @deaftones18 on Instagram!! We are on Ireland's got talent. Please give us a follow. Thank you ๐Ÿ˜œ

  • I remembered you from antm. Im looking for videos about teaching babies sign language because my little girl is now 6 months old so we can communicate better. im so glad I found your channel.

  • You are wonderful informer of sign language….I am also make video on indian sign language and speech therapy please promote my channel…I will thankful of you

  • I did this with my oldest daughter Riley, and when she started preschool, she wouldn't talk. She signed everything and I had a special conference called to ask me what she was saying.

  • I remember when I was little my parents thought me baby sign language. Iโ€™ve always loved the language and Iโ€™m going to be taking a sign language class next year and Iโ€™m very excited and Iโ€™ve always wanted to learn more.

  • I now know how to say "i want sleep" in ASL. It is very useful. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    I'm a hearing person but I have hearing loss in my right ear and very loud tinnitus. Since the right ear is where you process speech from, I'm learning sign language with my roommate so that we can communicate more easily. She has audio processing issues due to ADHD and even though neither of us is deaf or hoh, we are enjoying learning ASL so we can chat more easily.

    I can also use it at work, since I do see a few deaf or HoH people in my job. Thank you so much for being such a passionate advocate and thank you for making this video.

  • My son is 16 months old and has started "talking" but he's goofy and makes up his own "words", like, he won't say "hot" he blows (because we blow on hot food, blow out candles and blow to start a bonfire), he won't say cat, he meows, etc.

    So I decided to teach him sign, because I thought he'd respond to that better than words, and he just now started mimicing them, but he just repeats random words in the wrong way ๐Ÿ˜‚ Like, "I can't remember 'more' but I remember 'milk' so i'm gonna sign milk, and you figure it out from context"… ok little man…

  • 'Outside' is our toddler's favorite sign. ๐Ÿ˜
    Rainbow and strawberry are in her top 5 right now too.

  • Hi and thank you for this great video. Im from the hearing community…I am from New Zealand and I'm gonna be raising my baby with English language and German language from their other parent. Our baby will be born in Germany and stay here for at least its first few years of life.
    I want to teach my kid to sign, with close to no SL of my own yet…Is it best to teach my kid "baby sign language", and learn this together with them, and both my partner and I use this?? Or , shall we learn and use signs in NZSL and ( I don't even know the name for this language) DSL??? I only know a little NZSL but ASL is so beautiful as a language. Thanks for taking the time to answer.

  • Is it bad that I quickly stated, " I wanted a certain part of you in my belly!" when he said, "-Your baby in your belly-"

    He's too good looking to think purely around…lol.

  • I learned to sign the alphabet when I was a child and never forgot it. We have a new baby in our family and although we used signing a little with our firstborns, this little one has hearing issues so we are a teeny bit ahead of the game. How lucky to have already used this beautiful language so to have experienced the joy and color it gives to babies learning to communicate. Thank you for giving us this great way to refresh our skills and learn more!

  • Anyone here a Dad who is going to teach Sign Language? The intro should be more parent based than just Mom
