ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR:

  • Hello! My name is Michael. When I was three years old, my younger brother became sick with spinal meningitis. In the process, my brother became deaf with an almost complete hearing loss. This difficult situation provided a unique opportunity for my family and I to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL). Unlike some deaf children, my brother was not sent away to a deaf or hard of hearing school. He grew up with us, his hearing family, and we were active in the deaf community.
  • As a police officer and federal investigator, I often used ASL to communicate with and interpret for witnesses, victims, and perpetrators. I decided to create ASL courses because it’s a useful and practical skill to have. Like learning any language, it opens your mind and creates the ability to communicate with a whole new group of people.

Transcripts

1. Course Introduction: Hello. In this course, we're going toe. Learn how to sign this. Everything, the whole narrative. How are we gonna do it? Well, we're going to break it into parts. Will take a look at his sentence, will compare the sentence in SL and in English. Then we're gonna break each sentence down into vocabulary words, learn each vocabulary word, and then put the words together to form the sentence. And after we've learned the sentences, we can put all of the sentences together to form the narrative. Right. As we're going, I will be testing you. I will be wearing my glasses when I test you. And I won't be talking when I do the testing. I'm quiet. So I need to know that you can sign. You know what I show you. And also that you could understand what I sign. Mm. Okay. Are you ready? I'm ready. Let's do it. 2. Learn | ASL Alphabet: Okay, so let's talk about the A B. C's in American sign language. Okay, if you already know the A B. C's feel free to move forward in the course, that's fine. All right, so let's go step by step and learn each letter. All right, so we're going to start with a All right. How do we make in a Well, if you have open hand Early's down, put your thumb on the side and it looks like that. All right. So a All right. Let's go to be all right. Be all right. Be open hand. Just put. Put the fingers tight together. Put your thumb in. All right. It's good to know that some people sign the be like this. They leave the thumb on the outside. So instead of in there, they put it on the side B. All right. That would be what we would call the open. Be right. You're going to see that later in the course. But some people signed be like this. Some people signed be like this. All right, So be see is pretty straightforward. See? All right. So from the open hand, close it up, turn to the side and just curb down. See right. Good, good, good. Be all right d being all right. So from the open hand, we're gonna take the last three fingers and curve them down and put them on top of the thumb. All right, so from the side, it kind of looks like a rabbit. Your index finger is still up like the year of the rabbit. So d right when they show you in the picture. It's like, D. However, when I signed the I just go like this. The That's how I've seen most people sign it. It's the same sign. It's just rotated a little bit, cause this kind of awkward to go like this, you have to pivot a little bit so, D right, d All right, E. All right. You might notice the difference. He's doing it different than the picture. Well, you're going to see there are different ways of signing e. I grew up signing the like this. You notice there's a space in between. Other people will say you need to do it like this. Some say you need to do it like this. I'm gonna say you choose what is appropriate for you. I would do what your local deaf community does. The community that I grew up in, they sign like this. E no, Your choice e or e. Either way, when you make this sign right, put the fingers together, curve the tips down, put your thumb in and e right or e. Okay, e, we have f All right. So the fingers on top, some people put them together. F I've seen it also that they go like this with them open. And that's how I learned how to sign it. So f go From what? We're going to do it from the open hand. Take your index finger much the thumb from the side, touch the thumb and there is an f All right, let's rotate. Yes. Alright, so f g. All right. So it looks like this g you're not probably going to sign it like this, G cause it's very awkward, but the picture is wonderful because it shows you the finger movement or the finger placement. Okay, so this is how we would make it. Imagine you're telling someone the book was this thick. It was this thick right? So we have index finger and the thumb right that thick. Now take that hand position and rotate it forward. That is the G Just like that, G All right, so G All right, so this thick it was this thick Dean Dean. Okay. H each eso won. Cnu was silent like this. Probably not gonna sign it like this, But the picture is good to see how it is because it's just natural. Like this eight from the hand position. We're gonna get rid of these two fingers, put these together, put the thumb in and just rotate forward. It's kind of like a gun, right each eight, right? I I a So from the open hand position, these fingers in the middle are going to come in, wrap your thumb on the front and leave your pinky pointed up. All right? I right. J is just an eye, but you're gonna do a loop. All right, So I becomes a J Jay. All right, so when you make a J, there's no frozen movement, right? That's what I was just like that. But Jay is gonna have some movement. Jay Wright J Alright, K, Looks like this K. Hey, how do we make it? Well with these two fingers down, but the thumb in between. Right? And I suppose you could say my middle fingers forward just a little bit. All right, So Okay. Okay. Okay. L very straightforward. You probably speech. Seen people go like loser. Well, they're making it. L right. So put these three fingers down. L right, right. L go to I m right there We are. So in the open hand position, this thumb is going to tuck in here. M All right, let's see if we do it again. M m either. Three fingers. M m him. I m I m Okay. So end is and is similar. We're just gonna move the thumb over a little bit, so in, we'll have two fingers. This is M. Now we're gonna do end all right. And and in Okay. Oh, is about as straightforward as you get. Oh, right. Just take, like, the letter c and now connect it now. It's an old, uh, all right, p he is just like that, all right? It's like a K that was tipped down, right? P right, p All right, e e. And when you sign it, P aereo All right, let's dio que you Alright. So cue is like a G that got tipped over. All right, Q. You remember the GS like it's this thick. The book was this thick. Que right. Q. You probably wouldn't sign it like this cause it's awkward. So just cute, right? Q are we're just going across the index and the middle finger, so are right. And then tuck your thumb in our are s is just a fist like you're gonna fight someone s But it's a fist. It's not in a because the a thumbs on the outside. So take your thumb and put it on the on the front So S s write t write. Just put that little thumb in between the index finger and the middle finger. Right? So t t right. You all right? What? These ones down. Come in and knees together. You, You, You right? You He's similar to you. You just make a peace sign, right? Take the you and you split it. Or you could just say, you know it's peace. All right. It's also like the number two right. Two fingers piece, man. Don't be You okay? We're going to do three fingers all right. So just take your thumb and your pinky, but those down and you have W w right x think of like Captain Hook. You have a hook, right? Ah, right. So how do we make it it really? These three fingers, which is thumb in and hook, bend over your index finger a little bit hook. Look. Right. But when you sign it, you probably won't go like the picture, Like awkward. So just do like this X x. This is the right hand. Shape and position, hand shape and formation. Just go like that X, right? Why? Why is kind of, like, hang loose, man, right? Why? Just that you're going to face them, not going like this. You're going like this. So this part your palm will face forward. Why wine? Why? And z use the index finger and just draw Z like trace a Z in the air z z the like Zorro. Do you ever watch the movie or the TV show Z? Right? There you go. All right. So let's quickly go through all of the letters, and then we'll move forward. All right, so here we go. That's two of the ABC is doing with me. And I urge you to say it out loud, because when you say it out loud, you can kind of get a rhythm, and then you just get practice and then it becomes fluid. Okay, so here we go a being see day a Jeff. See? Eight I j Okay. Oh, I m in. Oh, hey, you. Um yes. See you. Be over you x Why, z And now I know my a b C's Okay. Sounds pretty good. Let's move forward. 3. Practice | ASL Alphabet: Okay, It's time for practice. Okay, so let's practice the A B. C's. We're going to see two videos. The first video would be at a slower speed. The second video will be at a faster speed, and we're going to sign the A B. C's with the video. Okay, so I'm gonna say the A b C's out loud as we go. I urge you to say the A B C's out loud as we go because it just helps make a better mind body connection, and we can remember quicker. All right, so let's stop talking and let's get to it. Here we go. Hey, Be see, be a f de h i j Hey. No. Him and oh, hey, you are yes to you. Be over you, x. Why, z? All right. Wonderful, Fabulous. Okay, so that was the first speed. Let's do it a little bit quicker. All right, Here we go. A B c B e f g h i j a l m in o e to r S t u b no view x. Why z? All right. What do you think? How did you do? What do you say we do? The fast speed. One more time. All right, let's do it. Here we go. A B C B e f g h i j k l m n o p do r s t u b w x Why z All right, So if we need to go back and practice some more, that's fine. No problem. OK, so great. 4. Four (4) Fingerspelling Rules: okay, because this course has a lot of finger spelling. It's a good idea to know the four finger spelling rules. OK, so let's start. Here we go. Number one, right? Use your dominant hand. OK? In other words, finger spell or even sign. Just sign with the hand that you're most comfortable with. Okay? So I'm right handed for me. It's most comfortable to finger spelled h e l l o with my right hand, right. If you're lefty or even if you're right, he But you feel more comfortable signing with your left hand. Go nuts. All right. So use your dominant hand. Or, in other words, just finger spell sign with the hand that you're most comfortable with. Okay, so this is the same for finger spelling and first sign, whatever you're most comfortable with, because the goal is clear communication and being understood. Right? Okay. All right. Let's go to rule number two. OK, sign in front of your shoulder. Right. So think of it this way. Pretend there's kind of like a box here, like one of those old TV sets that you know, thick and big. Right? So there's an area right here in front of your shoulder. And that's where you put your hand when your finger spelling. All right, so if I'm gonna sign or finger spelled h e l l o see how it's here. It's in the box. And the reason is, when you sign here, people can still look at your eyes, make eye contact, but still take in your hand signs right in what you're signing. The whole idea is communication and respectful communication usually means you're making eye contact right and taking in what people are signing. So if I sign like this h e l l o The farther I get up to the side, the more that people have to go, right. They have to go back and forth to watch your hand and your eyes, so keep it in the box, sign in front of your shoulder. All right. So, like, about out here, you don't have to, like, go way back here where it's uncomfortable. Then it just is a headache for communication, just, you know, right in front. Uh, h e l l O lo. All right. So let's go to rule number three. Okay, Double letters. All right. Even that word right there. T t right. Repeat a little to the side. Okay, so I'm right handed. So if I'm gonna spell this word right here letter or letters, I would go. L e t T E e R s. Did you see it? You see how I moved the tee? The second t a little bit to the sign. All right. L e t T e r s All right. So you can slide. You go. T t. Maybe you could just move it up and down a little bit, t t. But either way, we need some movement in there, because if I just go t t I mean, they can't hear me sane t t. So they're watching my hand, and they're like, Well, you spelled it wrong. There are two t is in that word. If you're left handed, just go off to the side a little bit. The other direction, right? L e t T e r s. All right. Either way, you keep it in the box, right? L E t T E R s letters. So let's do a little bit of practice. Why not? All right, So we have the name read or just the word read. Okay, So r e b right r e d He's one e and then to ease r e d huh? We go, Let's dio Jenny Okay, J sign with me. Finger spell with me, OK? J e n n Why? See the ends N n right? And j e N N y. All right. What else? We have We have Billy. Okay. B i l l i e All right. B i l l i e Okay, Good, good, good. So remember, double letters off to the side for the 2nd 1 Number four. OK, rule rule number four is don't bounce. Okay, so let me show you two versions off this name. Okay, so we have Henry. All right, so I'm gonna finger spell it two different versions and you tell me which one is easier to understand. OK, so here is version number one. Right, Henry, Here is version number two. Ok, do you notice it's easy, right? So if I am bound seen if I'm going h e and are why you know I'm filled with good emotion, have been able to sign with someone for a while, so I'm just like, yeah, I'm a eight e and our why? My good positive energy is wonderful, but my bouncy motions are a headache for whoever is trying to understand me, right? So just, you know, the person is trying to take it in like h e. And, uh, it's a headache, right? So the idea is to not bounce right. If you go up and down a little bit h e and R, why not a big deal? But when you start bouncing and flying around, it becomes a big deal because it's a communication barrier and we're looking for clear communication, right? So it would just be a ci e n r. Why once again, h e n r. Why not h e m r? Why no, don't bounce. Okay. Oh, yes. I should saw a visual. If you bounce, you know it's dizzy and makes people with dizzy because they're trying to follow you. They want to talk with you. They're thrilled. Deaf people are usually thrilled if you come up to them and you want to sign the like, Wow, Another signer. Fantastic. Just be clear with your signs, right? Don't make them busy with your h e Ed are Why, Okay, so we talked about the four fingers spelling rules. Let's just do a quick review. You is your dominant hand. In other words, used the hand that you're most comfortable with. Number to sign in front of your shoulder. So pretend there's like, a box here, stick your hand in it and sign, huh? Okay. Double letters. Repeat a little bit to the side. So we're doing hello. H e l l o. Because we need to communicate its two letters. Right? And maybe the most important one for clear communication is don't bounce. It makes people dizzy. Okay, so those were the four fingers Billing rules. Wonderful. 5. Practice | Names: Oh, case, let's do practice finger spelling names. Okay, So I'm gonna show you something, and we'll take our time. And we will put our finger spelling skills to the test, and we will sign together. OK, Finger spell together. Okay, here we go. The first name is Kurt. All right, so sign with me. Fingers spell with me. Here we go. Ok, you are t all right. That is Kurt again. K, you are t all right again. A little bit quicker. K U r t. So we have Kurt. All right, let's move to the next one. All right, all right. We have Holly. Okay, We have a double. L remember what we do when we have a double letter. Well, let's do it. Let's sign the word eight. Oh. Oh, l Why, Right. Double letter. 1st 1 regular. 2nd 1 off to the side. Okay. Again. H Oh, oh, l Why, A little bit quicker? H o l l Why h o l l Why we have Holly. Okay, good, good. Moving forward. The next name. You think it's a last name? Right, Davis, Here we go. D a be I s uh huh. De a V I s right again. D a B I s all right, Davis, but good. All right. The next one is the other last name. Perez. Here we go. Pee. Hey, are e z again? P Hey, are e z Hey, e r e z Right. The repetition. The practice is going to make it much smoother and you'll be able to do it. Okay, so here we go. Perez. All right. P E R E z. All right. Okay. We have a first and last name. Now we want to make sure that we make it clear that there are two names in the person's first name. Isn't Kurt Davis, right? It's Kurt Davis. So we're going to pause just a little bit in between the words, Okay? So watch me when I do it and see if you can see what I do. When I paused to show that there it's two separate names. Here we go. Okay. So I signed Kurt, and then my hand went down just a little bit just for a quick moment, and then back up to Davis. All right, so if you pause just a tiny bit, maybe move down Just a tiny bit. It makes it clear that there are two names. Kurt Davis. Okay, so let's do it together. Bring her spell with me. Here we go. Right. Okay. Again. Here we go. Ok, you are Tee ours D A v. I s okay. A little bit quicker. Hurt. Davis. Alright again. Here we go. Kurt Davis. Uh huh. All right. Moving forward. The next full name. Holly Perez. Okay, Two names once again. So first and last name applies a little bit in between. Come down. All right, Here we go. H oh! Oh, l Why Pause p e r e z Ali Perez again. Here we go. H Oh, l l why pause? P E r E z. Okay. Holly Perez. Okay, once again. Holly Perez. Okay, good. Good. All right. So we finger spelled the finger, spelled all of the names. All right. In the next two parts, I'm going to test you test. Right? So it'll be testing will be reviewing finger spelling the names. OK, so we'll see the names kind of in regular order. I'm gonna switch them around a little bit. The whole point is to get practice. Finger spelling. Okay, so in the first part, I'm going to show you something and you finger spell it while your finger spelling. I'm just gonna wait, hang out for a little bit, see if you can finger spell it before I start signing. Okay, So short to you, I'll hang out away the weight, and then I will finger spell it. Okay. In the second part, I'm going this finger spell something you'll see me signing, and then you'll have to look and say, Okay, What is he doing? What does he do? It? Ah ha! OK, all right. And in the review sections, I'm going to be wearing my glasses, but better. And I won't be seen anything. Look. OK, so we'll be just fine. Will communicate. Let's do it. 8. Learn | ASL vs English: Okay, The first part of our story, the first part of our narrative. Alright. In English, we could say Holly Perez is a loyal police officer.
