1. Intro: Hello, welcome to signing with Camille. I'm so happy to have you here with me today to learn the ASL alphabet plus 26 basic signs. There could be a number of reasons why you'd like to learn sign language. Maybe you'd like to learn so you can communicate with a loved one. Or maybe you'd like to be more involved with the deaf or hard of hearing community. Maybe you'd like to teach your little one baby sign, or maybe you just would like to broaden your communication skills. No matter your reason, I feel that sign language is a fun and beautiful language that I'm super excited to teach you today. Learning that ASL alphabet will be your most important tool in getting to know sign language. Once you've got the alphabet down, you'll be able to finger, spell and communicate almost anything you'd like that way. Plus you'll get to know a little bit about hand shapes as well. The class will be divided by each letter and the sign that goes with it. So feel free to go back and review as necessary and tell you feel comfortable. But just make sure that you have a lot of fun.
