  1. Once again, fantastic lesson that teaches so much more than you even recognize the first time you watch it! Fantastic! ASL students really need to know how to tell someone to slow down and sign or fingerspell again!

  2. I have to tell you that I am so happy whenever you post a new video. You are so positive and you make it so even I (still very much a beginner) can understand some of what you are saying. Thank you for these videos! I don't have the chance to use it in my life but ASL has become a passion for me. It's so beautiful and expressive!

  3. Thanks! Glad you like it. 🙂 You're right, there's a lot of material "between the lines." Watching this multiple times can help catch them.

  4. I'm glad you enjoy my videos! Makes me feel good about making them. 🙂 You're right, ASL is so incredibly beautiful and expressive and I want to share it with as many people as I can. You can help by sharing my videos with everyone you know! 😉

  5. I'm glad you're enjoying the videos. Thanks for the compliment. I promise to keep making more if you promise to keep watching them. 😉

  6. What? Where? How? Hmmm, if you're learning multiple things each time you watch, maybe I should start charging a fee. 😉

  7. These videos are great! I'm 11 and know very little sign language and I really want to learn more because I hope to work with Deaf children or kids with disabilities! Keep up the good work! Also can you make one that you think may help me? Thanks again!

  8. I really enjoy to watch you teach people sign language. I will put it for hearing people in G+ soon. Thanks for Share! Smile!

  9. Sorry. I don't caption most of my videos because ASL and English are separate languages. If I caption them, then people who watch them will get into the habit of thinking of the signs in English. Thus I purposely leave off captions. Watch them over and over and try to figure out context, concepts, and meanings. You'll catch it! 🙂

  10. Thanks! Glad you like the videos. Keep practicing and when you get to high school hopefully they'll have ASL classes you can take too!

  11. fantastic – so glad that an ASL teacher friend sent me a link – I love the way you appeal to the kid /mom in me. keep up the good work!

  12. Thank you for this video! I have a 5 year old deaf son and am trying to learn with him! He LOVED the video and I learned so much. Thanks again!

  13. Having trouble understanding the sign you make touching your ear then coming down to a "Y" Also, you signed across your arms with your fingers splayed out. I could never catch the meaning for that, either.

  14. I like your video.  I was happy to watch a video that only used sign language to teach.  I think it is great to learn from someone that is Deaf and see the full sentences without spoken explanations.  I do have a good base of sign language vocabulary already though.  I understand the comments that you make.  I agree that someone from the Deaf community that wants to be able to teach others sign language should be able to find a job to teach the greater community.  However, I have to also disagree with your comments below your video.  I think even if someone learns 1 sign and is able to communicate 1 word to someone that is Deaf then that is helping to break down barriers and communicate which is a great start.  And somebody teaching sign language to others is helping people learn even if they are not Deaf.  Anybody that learns a few basic words from another language when they are travelling or meeting someone from another country is making an effort to communicate.  It usually is appreciated.  Sign language is not only for the Deaf.  It is useful teaching infants to communicate before they learn to speak verbally.  It is helpful with people with special needs that have trouble speaking such as down syndrome, autism, cleft lip, speech delays, etc.  Sign language is a great tool when learning a second language.  Gesturing is everyone's first natural language.  Everyone does it even if they do not know an official sign language. Sign language is a beautiful way to communicate.  Signing to a song or poem helps us remember the words.  There are many benefits to using our body to speak. 

  15. Thanks for this little lesson! I needed the brush up and enjoyed watching you sign. I am teaching basic sign (pidgin) to a group of adults with intellectual disability. My daughter, now deceased, was deaf. My signing has become rusty since her death. Signs for St. Patrick's day will be of interest to my little group. Thank you.

  16. Thank you for making a video that new learners can actually understand! I usually feel so dumb and defeated at the end of an asl lesson but you slowed down and were very conscious of us newbies. Great video!
