The ASL Challenge | ASL
August 23, 2019
[Intro screen writing “RIKKI POYNTER”] [Pokemon game sound] Yes, I am currently filming in a new area. I’m in northern California right now. We’re going to do a fun video today, nothing serious. We’re going to be doing some ASL challenges. I did these before on Facebook with iPhone videos but I figured I’d do it again here on a much nicer camera. Let’s see if I’ve improved any since then. There’s four challenges. Let’s start! The ABC challenge, regular way. [signs the alphabet, gets Y and Z mixed up in the process] Uh, no. Let’s do that again. I got Y and Z backwards. [signs alphabet, messes up] I’m trying not to focus on this too much. That was um.. Okay. Now I’m going to do the alphabet again, but backwards. I need to look at a list since I don’t know the alphabet backwards. This is a hard challenge for me. That wasn’t too terrible. Now I want to try the regular one again. Now I’ll do the alphabet with my left hand. I write with my left hand, but I sign with my right. I can’t sign very well with my left hand for some reason. Uh, I think that was actually better with this hand. Okay then. Alright, last one. Spelling “cat” and “dog” at the same time on different hands. Yeah? No? Okay, switching. Okay, alphabet one more time because it’s frustrating me. Okay, I’m just getting worse at this instead of improving. Alright, that’s it! That was fun. I believe there are more challenges, but I can’t think of them specifically at the moment. If you want to try these, you’re more than welcome to upload your own videos to YouTube, Facebook, Twitter, whatever.
