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). 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: In this course, we're going to use quizzes as a fun way to boost your sign language skills. At the beginning of each section, there is a quiz. Now I'm going to be signing something and there will be three answer choices. You try to match up what I'm signing with one of the choices. Now if you have to guess because you're not sure, that's okay. Here's the wonderful part. The three lessons that come after the quizzes are for explaining each answer one by one. So I'm going to teach you how to sign each answer, the question form and also the statement form, right? So as we go and you're going to be doing pronouns, finger spelling, names, lots of vocabulary, and taking those pieces, putting them together to form questions and statements. And you know, it I got my glasses. So we're going to be doing lots of review, review for phrases and review for vocabulary. We need to make sure that what you're learning, what I'm teaching is sticking in your brain. Okay, let's jump in, let's do it. 2. Learn | ASL Alphabet: Let's talk about the ABCs in American Sign Language. Jumping right in. Here we go to a, right. So we'll start with our hand like this. We're going to put our fingers together, curve them down. Now, push the thumb along, up to the side, right close to the side. That is an a. Right. So now let's sign it two times. Here we go, a, a, all right, moving forward, Let's do B, right? Let's start with R. Handshape. Now fingers together. Put your thumb in front. All right, so if we twist it, it looks like that B. Okay, So let's sign it two times. Here we go. B, B, Okay, You may see some people signing a b like this, where they leave the thumb along the side, I sign a b like this, where I put it in front. Okay. You'll notice there are variations in American Sign Language. And it happens. It's a wild language. Okay, let's go to C. We'll start with R, handshape fingers together and we're going to curve. So it is, I see, right? This is really straightforward, right? So we have a C. C, once again. See, right, let's sign it a couple times. Here we go. C. C, Okay, let's go to D. Alright, so how do we form it? Well, we're going to leave our index finger up. The other ones are going to come down and connect with the thumb right from the side. It will look like this. Right? So we have, this would kinda looks like a D. A D, Once again, right there is your d, right? So let's sign it a couple times. Here we go. D, right in the picture, they have it like this. I see more people just sign it like this. There may be variations. All right, but we have dy. Dy, Okay, let's go to E. All right, So hand like this, fingers together. And here we go. E. All right, so the tips of the fingers are curved down and the thumb is kinda curved in. We have an e right in the picture. They go all the way down and they touch the top of the thumb. Alright, I've learned it in, I cited like this and E. You'll see the difference. There is lots of people do it. All right. So we have e. All right. Okay, let's do it cited a couple of times. Here we go. Ie E. Okay? Okay, let's go to F, right here we go. Just connect the index finger with the thumb. Alright. You notice in the picture the fingers are tight like that. I sign it like this and I've seen a lot of people cite it like this. So we have F. All right, so once again, like this, just connect index finger with the thumb. Go like this. F. Alright, with cited a couple of times. Here we go. F, F. All right, let's do g. Alright? Let's make the handshape. Alright? And easy way to explain this. Imagine you're trying to measure something or explain to someone how thick something is. So you'll be like this. It was this thick. Okay. So that handshape right there, just take it and turn it forward. Right now you have a G, right? You'll notice in the picture it looks like it's sign like this because you're looking at the inside of the hand. However, this is extremely uncomfortable. So when people do sign it, they go like this, right? So you just sign it, you show this part G. All right. So once again, it's like this thick turn-around forward, that is a G. All right, Let's sign it a couple of times. Here we go. G. G, okay? Okay, moving forward, Let's do eight, alright? And shape eight. Alright, so basically what we're doing is we're leaving our index finger and middle finger together up. Kinda like, uh, you will get to that but same shape as a U. Now we twist it, so it's like this, or return it forward and over, right? So it's like this. Now in the picture shows you that it's like this. But once again, it's very awkward. This sign in aids like this because your body's not turned comfortably. So sign-in H like this, right? Age, right? Once again, h, right? Let's start at a couple of times. Here we go. Eight. Eight. Alright, moving forward to, okay, let's make the hand shape. Here we go. I, alright, so it's just a pinky sticking up with the thumb along the front of the fingers at a curb down. Alright, once again, the middle three go down, the pinky stays up and the thumb curves in front. That is an eye. All right. Once again, I all right. Let's try it a couple of times. Here we go. I, I, okay? All right, we're going to learn j. Now the hand shape is the same as an AI, okay? But we're going to use the tip and you see the arrow, we're going to trace a little J in the air, right? J. J, okay, So once again, the I form the I and now use the tip of your finger in, trace it j in the air, j, right? Let's do a two times. Here we go. J. J. Okay, Good, Good. All right, Moving forward to k, right, let's form it. Right, that is a k. So drop-down the pinky finger and the ring finger just leave him out. Now leave the index finger and the middle fingers spread apart. Okay. Take the thumb and move it towards the middle of the fingers. All right. And I mind pushes over it's touching the middle finger more. Alright, so that is a k. Notice the index or the thumb in there. It's not perfectly in the middle. It's towards the middle finger, right? That is a k right in the picture it shows a kind of close in. Pictures aren't always perfect, right? So k, right? K. All right, let's start it at two times. Here we go. K, k. All right, good, good. Right, L is about as straightforward as it goes. So here we go. We have L. How do we form it? Well, the last three fingers curved them down and just leave it. If you've ever made the sign for loser, you already know how to make an L. L, Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. L, L. Okay? All right. Let's see, we have m, right? How do we make it? Well, we're gonna take our thumb is sticky between our pinky and ring finger and then curve it down, right? That's right. So we kinda have like the little nub of your thumb sticking out between ring finger and pinky finger. Right. So when we form it, thumb goes in there and then we bring it down, right? So make sure there are 1, 2, 3 fingers on this side of the thumb, right? Once again, m. Alright, let's sign it two times. Here we go. Mmm, M. Ok. going to end. It's similar, but the thumb is going to move over one finger. Okay. So what does that look like? Instead of putting our thumb between our pinky and a ring, we're going to put it between the ring finger and the middle finger. Bring it down. Write n. N, right? Twisted a little bit so you can see, right? So the m was over here, but the end is over here. So one finger moves over m and n, n. All right, Let's sign it two times. Here we go. N, N. Okay? All right, let's do, oh, nice straightforward. Here we go, starting from the base handshape. Now let's go like this and make, you know it's an O. Very straightforward. All right, so, oh, alright, assign it two times. Here we go. Oh, oh, let's get to p. All right, so P is basically a K which is tipped down. So how do we make the K Once again? Well, get rid of the pink, pinky and ring finger. Take your thumb and put it between these two fingers are up, butt press more against the middle finger right? Now, take that and flip it down. Suddenly we have a p, right? P. Once again. Write p, and in the picture it shows you like that, right, where you're put. It's just awkward. Fellow resign and we just go p, right? P. P. All right, Let's do it two times. Here we go. Sign with me. P. P. Alright, let's review once again these two down thumb in, pressing more against the middle finger. Alright, and flip it down. Write P. Okay, Good, Good. All right, the Q, Alright, the queue hand shape is very similar to the G handshape, but it's just rotated down. So how do we make the G? Well, remember you're like all the book was this thick ice where the book was that thick. So that's the hand shape we're going to use right there. Okay. Now we're gonna tilted forward, that is the g. Keep going and that is the Q, right? So the hand shape is that like this? Now just turn it down, Q, right? It was this big, okay, That's the Q shape. Turn it down, alright, assign it two times. Here we go. Q. Q, right, you're probably not going to go. Q. It's not natural, and that's not how people really sign it. So it's q. To write, it might turn it a little bit, something like that. But Q, right? Good, good. Well, let's go to our right. So let's start from our base hand position. And we're going to get rid of our ring finger and pinky finger. Now we're going to cross our fingers, right? And now we're going to put the thumb in front. This thinking, Oh, you're like, oh, something's going to happen on you. Or are you crossing your fingers behind your back like kids do and you actually lying or whatever and your fingers are crossed, whatever. That's the handshape, right? Just cross your fingers and stick your thumb in front, right. So the index finger is in front of the middle finger and there's an r. Right? So let's form it are. All right, Let's sign and a couple of times here we go. Our r. All right, Good, Good. Let's move to S. S is basically just a fist right? Here we go. Make a fist. Put your thumb in front. There's an S colleague, put your dukes up, who I am holding two Ss. All right, So S, Once again, S make a fist, pull your thumb in front. All right. 1 second. All right, so we have S. All right, Let's sign it two times. Here we go. S, S. So remember system-based, there's us. All right, Let's go to t. All right, so remember m was over here, n was over here, and T is right there. T is probably the quickest and easiest one. Just put your thumb in between your index finger and middle finger. Clamped down, right. There's your T, right? T. Once again. T, right. Let's sign it two times. Here we go. T. Okay, good, good. Moving to you are right. So here let's start with like this. Bring them together. What these two down with your thumb in there is a you write you write you. You. All right. Let's sign it two times. Here we go. You you remember tied together because if you open them up, you have a V, convenient u, v right there. How do you make a V is just peace man piece, right? Or the number two. All right, b, b, remember open is the V, closed is the u, right? So V. All right. All right, let's go to w, right, open hand. Now we're going to use the thumb to pinch down the pinky finger, to hold down the pinky finger. And we're going to leave these three fingers up and they're in the shape of a W and W, Okay, so once again, W. W might take some practice to get your thumb over there. Pinning down the pinky or practice makes improvement, right? So let's sign in. Here we go. W, W, right? Once again, use that term, pin down the pinky. Leave these three up. That is the W. Good, Good. All right, we have x, alright, so we'll go like this. Get rid of these fingers, but the thumb there, right now, take your index finger and you're going to curve it down into a hook, like Captain Hook are, it's an x, x, right? So we can go straight to index finger like you're going to point at someone or her. And now just turn it sideways and curve it down. X right in the picture. The thumbs on the inside. And they're like turning like this. To tell you the truth, I'm not going to say it's impossible, but I've never seen anybody put the thumb inside. I guess it's very possible there are variations. I put the thumb on the outside and that's how I've seen it because it's quite inconvenient to put it inside because you're yeah. So I put it out here but the hook is the same. All right. You're probably not going to sign it like that. The picture is great because it shows you the hand position. But when you just sign in, you're just going to go x x x, right? Let's sign it, sign it with me. Here we go. X, x, right? So it is, remember our guess, Captain Hook, with the hook, so it's X. All right, We're going to y. All right, how do we make it? Middle three fingers, just put them down. That's it. Like hang loose, man, right. Why? All right. When you sign it, you just going to go like this and show your palm, right? Show that part of the hand Y. Let's do it two times. Here we go. Why? Why? All right, okay, z, nice and straightforward as well. Index finger. Just use your index finger and trace a Z in the air, right? Z, right. Remember how J we trace the J in the air. Now what the z? We're going to trace the z and do a quick, There's no need to go because it's just one letter, right? So z. All right, Let's do it two times. Here we go. Z. Z. Okay, so that was the a, B, Cs in American Sign Language. That's pretty cool. 3. Practice | ASL Alphabet: Okay, it's time for practice. Okay, so let's practice the ABCs. We're going to see two videos. The first video will be at a slower speed. The second video will be at a faster speed and we're going to sign the ABCs with the video. Okay, so I'm gonna say the ABCs out loud as we go. I urge you to see the ABCs 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. A B C B E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, Z, right? Wonderful. Fabulous. Okay, so that was the first bead. Let's do it a little bit quicker. Alright, here we go. A, B, C, D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, 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 D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y, Z. All right, so if we need to go back and practice some more, That's fine. No problem. Okay. 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 fingers spelling rules. Okay, so let's start here we go. Number 1. Use your dominant hand, pay, in other words, fingerspell 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 spell H-E-L-L-O with my right hand. Right. If you're lefty or even if you're righty, But you feel more comfortable signing with your left hand, go nuts, right? So use your dominant hand or in other words, just fingerspell sign with the hand that you're most comfortable with. Okay, So this is the same per finger spelling and for signing 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. Okay. 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 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 going to assign or fingerspell, age, ELL, 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. 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. H-e-l-l-o low. Right. So let's go to rule number three. Okay, double letters. All right. Even that word right there, TT, right. Repeat a little to the side, bays, so I'm right-handed. So a family spell this word right here. Letter or letters I would go L, E, T, T, E, IRS. Did you see you see how I move the t, the second t a little bit to the side. All right, L E T T E R S. All right, so you can slide, you can go a T, T. Maybe you can just move it up and down a little bit ti, ti. But either way we need some movement in there because if I just go TT I mean, they can't hear me. Same t t So other than watching my hand and they're like, Well, you spelled it wrong. Or to two 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, right? Either way you keep it in the box, right? L E T, T E IRS letters. So let's do a little bit of practice. Why not? Right, so we have the name read or just the word read. Okay? So our E, E B, all right, our E D is 1 e and then two e's r e d. We go, Let's do jenny, Okay, j sine with me, fingers bow with me. Okay. J E N, N, Y, C, the ends and n and n, J, n and Y, right? See you or else we have, we have Billy, okay, B I L, L I E. Alright, B I L, L E. Okay, good, good, good. So remember double letters off to the side for the second one. Number four, okay, rule rule number four is don't bounce. Okay. So let me show you two versions of this name. Okay, So we have Henry, alright, so I'm going to finger spell it to different versions and you tell me which one is easier to understand. Okay. So here is version number one. Right? Henry, here is version number 2. Okay. Do you notice it's easy, right? So if I'm bouncing, if I'm going aids and our y, you know, I'm filled with good emotion. I haven't been able to sign with someone for awhile. Saunders like yeah, my aids. And our y by good positive energy is wonderful. But my bouncing motions are a headache for whoever's trying to understand me. Right. So just, you know, the person's trying to take it in with like h e n, It's a headache, right? So the idea is to not bounce, right? If you go up and down a little bit and RY, 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 H E R Y. Once again, h e n RY not H E R Y. Now, don't bounce. Okay. Oh, I guess I should show a visual. If you bounce. 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. This be clear with your signs, right? Don't make them busy with your H, E, R, Y. Okay. So we talked about the four fingers spelling rules. Let's just do a quick review. Use your dominant hand. In other words, use 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. 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 it's two letters. All 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 spelling rules. Wonderful. 5. Practice | Fingerspelling Names: All right, let's do some finger spelling practice and we're going to practice with names because later in the course will be finger spelling a lot. Okay, let's take a look at the FirstName. Here we go. All in. All right, let's bring her spell together fingerspell with me. Here we go. O w e n. O w e n. Okay, we have all win. That's right. All right. Next name is Rose. Let's do it. R O S E. Again. R O S E. Okay? So we have rows. All right, Next name is M0. Alright, here we go. E M I L, L E M I L, we have M0. Okay? So let's make things a little bit more interesting. It's the hand. If we have the hand, that means we need the timer. Okay, so you know it, Let's do practice before the test. Okay, the next two sections, we'll do finger spelling and will fingerspell names. So let's take a look at how it is the format. I'm going to show you a name, you finger spell it. You'll have six seconds on the clock. If you need to pause for more time. No worries. All right. Here we go. Let's do it. All right. It's Rosa. Okay. So that's the first part. And the first part has a timer. The second part does not have the timer. You'll just have me and I will fingerspell to use. So you take a look, what is he doing and you figure out what name. It's just going to be a name, a short name. What am I Fingers spelling. All right. Let's take a look. So what did I fingerspell? Haha, i fingers spelled take t, a p, e. All right. T8. All right, good, good. So that will be, well, the first part will be you finger spelling, right? You finger spell what you see. Race the timer. Then after that, I will fingerspell. First subway wearing my glasses, can't go anywhere without the glasses. I won't be saying anything will communicate, will fingerspell. Let's do it. 8. Explore | Quiz Format: Let's talk about the format for all of the quizzes in this course, okay? So you're going to see something like this. Basically you're going to watch me sign something appeared times and try to match what I'm signing with one of the answers. So I'll sign a couple times. Then I'll show you this screen where it says answered. Then I'm going to start a timer that runs for five seconds. Now this is your opportunity to decide what you want to do. You want to pause the video, rewind, had me sign again. That's fine. Pause the video, take a moment to think or just let the timer run because you already know what answer you want to choose. Either way, when the timer is up, I'll show you the answer and then I'll sign it again. Okay, so that is the format and you're thinking, well that's great, but let's see it in action. Okay, well let's take our first quiz. And since this is testing, it's a quiz. I'll be wearing my glasses whenever I have my glasses on for review, testing, quiz, whatever during this course, I won't be talking. Okay, here we go. Our first quiz. Okay, so that was our first quiz. That's quick review and talk about what happened. You saw the answers, right? You watched me sign. I paused, then I sign again. And then we went to the screen where it says answer, I ran the timer. Remember that's your opportunity to take a moment, decide what you want to do. And then I showed you the answer after the timer is finished and I signed again. Okay, so that's the format for all of the quizzes in the course. Now of course they're going to get more difficult. We're going to have longer, longer sentences with more signs, fingers spelled names, and putting it all together, right? So something wonderful, absolutely wonderful. You're going to start each section with the quiz and you choose your answer and whether or not you're right or wrong, I'm going to teach you how to sign and understand each answer, Right? Okay, so the first lesson in this section will be a quiz. After that it will be 1, 2, 3. I'm going to teach you how to sign this one, this one and this one. And when we're working on one, each one, I'll teach you how to sign the question version and also the statement version, that declarative sentence version. So we're going to boost your vocabulary. We're going to do extra review intestine as well. And we're going to have a good time. You're going to learn a lot. Okay, Let's jump in. 10. JAX WIN.: In this lesson, we're going to talk about how to sign Jack's win and Jack's win. Okay, So we have the ASL on top, we have the English version down below. All right, so let's start with the statement, the affirmative sentence, that declarative sentence. Okay, Jack's when here's what it looks like. Okay, So let's break it apart. First we have the name, right? We have the name, we're just going to fingerspell, fingers bell. So here we go. J a x, right? So we have checks, right? Sign with me. Here we go. Ga, a little bit quicker. Okay, So we have jacks. All right. When vocabulary word. This is how you sign when okay. We're going to use both hands. Now. I'm right-handed, so my non-dominant hand, my left hand, I'm going to make a fist. All right. Just like that, we could say it's the letter S in the alphabet. Like you're putting up your dukes. It's an FCE, the fist. Now take that fist, put it right here. That's my non-dominant hand. With my right hand, my dominant hand. I'm going to start over here, palm facing in. It's just a loose handwrite their fingers apart. Now I'm going to come down and swipe whatever's right here. We can pretend there's like a little mini trophy. Because there's a trophy over there. Why not? So we're up here, we come down, we swipe it, and then we come up and we end in a fist like we're grabbing were holding on that under that little mini trophy because we win. Win. When? When? From the other side? When? Right from the front again. When? All right. Let's do it three times. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Here we go. Win, win, win. Okay, So this was the sign per win. Remember both hand, non-dominant hand, make that platform with the pissed right here. Dominant hand. You know, you're gonna grab that little trophy on top. So we have win. Okay, that was assigned per win. All right, let's get back to the pulse sentence so we know all the signs. Let's just do it. And it's a declarative sentence. Remember, Jack's when, right? You cannot a little bit at the end if you want, just because you're sharing information, you're affirming something. Mm-hm. Alright, let's do it a couple of times. Sine with me. Here we go. Okay, so that was the statement version, that declarative sentence. Let's do the question. So here's what it looks like and then we'll break it apart. Okay. You probably noticed the signs are the same. We're going to finger spell the name and we're gonna do when, but at the end or even during the whole sentence because it's a nice short sentence, you need to raise your eyebrows, lean forward. We're communicating a yes, no question. So here's what it looks like again. All right. Here's a way to remember yes-no questions when you need to show the facial expression, pretend there's a fence like right here and you can't look over it and tell you go like this, you're kinda peaking over the fence because you're asking for information. You want to know what's on the other side, right? So raise your eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. So here we go again, the question, Jack's when. Okay, let's contrast that with this statement, right? So the signs are the same, but the body, the facial expressions are different. So here is the statement. All right, quick back to the question. Here we go. Okay, Let's do one more time. Sign with Me. Statement. All right, n The question, here we go. Okay, so in this lesson we learned how to sign Jack's win. And the question, Jack's win. Okay. 11. JOY LOSE?: In this lesson, we're going to talk about how to sign the question, Joy, lose. In the statement, joy, lose. Okay, we're going to start with the question. So here we go. This is what it looks like, then we'll break it apart. Okay, so first we have the name, so we're going to finger spell. Here we go. J, O, Y, right? Joy. Let's do a two times sine with me, fingerspell with me. Here we go. Joy. Okay, Moving forward, the sign for lose vocabulary. Here's how we assign lose. Okay, we're going to use both hands. I'm right-handed, non-dominant hand for me, my left hand, I'm going to make this handshape. Fingers here spread apart, put them together, tom alongside. Now we're going to put it here. That's our platform with your right hand. If your dominant hand is right hand, minds right hand, we're going to make the letter V. All right, I can the alphabet U, V, W, Remember fingers, the other is a U, fingers apart, that is a V. It's just a peace sign, right? Take that V, we're going to use this part and we're going to smack it down on top of our open palm. Lose, lose from the side. Lose. Other side. From the front again. Lose. All right, So starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Lose. Okay, quick reminder. When we talk about loose here we're not talking about lose your keys Lu, you lose your money, something like that. We're talking about lose a game. For example, chess, a competition, something where you're trying to win, right? It's the opposite of when, if you want to say lose your keys, the sign for that would be like this. Like you lose your money, you lose, your keys, lose. But we're talking about loses in a game, a competition. So we're going to go like this. Now most people aren't too happy when they lose. So you can put it in your face to help describe the situation. Lose. Put so much energy in. Lose. Okay, quick review. Remember non-dominant hand, make that platform dominant hand make a V, just stick it down on top. That's the sign for lose. Okay, moving forward, Let's do the question. We know the signs, we know how to do joy, lose. Now we need to make search the question. So here's what it looks like. Ok, So at the end of the sentence or in this sentence throughout the whole thing is as soon as night, nice, Sweden short. Raise your eyebrows, lean forward. You're like, I want to know what's happening. Like you're looking over a fence, you're peeking over. I want to know what's going on. All right, so we go like this. Joy, lose. All right, let's do it a couple times. Sine with me. Here we go. All right, let's do the opposite. Let's do this statement, right? So we're just going to have a neutral expression or maybe you can not at the end, but you're not going to raise your eyes. And I can lean forward because it's a declarative sentence. We're sharing information. All right, so let's do it. If you want, you can add in kind of an unpleasant look on your face. You're telling someone, you know, geoid didn't when we were counting on her by golly, joy, lose. All right. Let's do it a couple times. Sine with me. All right, quick back to the question. How do we do it? Right? Remember the signs are the same but the facial expression is very important, right? Joy, lose the question and the statement. Okay, so in this lesson we talked about how to sign joy lose the question and the statement. Joy lose. Okay, wonderful. 12. JIM CHEAT.: In this lesson, you're going to learn how to sign Jim cheat and Jim cheat. All right, so we have the declarative sentence and we have the question. We're going to start with the sentence, the affirmative declaration. Right? Here's what it looks like. All right, let's break it into parts. First we are going to finger spell the name. Alright, Jay, I M Zoom. Okay, so fingerspell with me. Let's do it a couple times. Here we go. Jim. Jim. Oh, okay. Now we have vocabulary word cheat. Here is how you sign cheat. Okay. We're going to use both hands and an elbow. I'm right-handed. So with my non-dominant hand, I'm going to go like this, make this handshape, bringing together thumb alongside. Now I'm going to put it over here so that my arms down in front of me, my elbows right here with my dominant hand for me, my right hand, I'm going to make the horns. Or we can say like heavy metal, you like Rock and write that handshape right there. Or you can just collect this middle two fingers down and the thumb in front, okay, like that. Now we're going to use the rigid part and we're going to rub twice at our elbow. Alright, we're going to actually touch. So altogether it's cheat sheet from the sine tdt. Other side. Teeth right from the front again. Cheat. All right, Let's do it three times. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Tdt, cheat. Okay, a few things. First, when you're going like this, if you make a fist to your hands kind of loose, it's not a big deal. I just tried to be consistent with this handshape right here. Main thing is that you're going like this down here. Cheat, right? Facial expression. People, when they find out the retreating cheat per linear phase helped describe the situation and send the message. Now cheat has multiple versions of how to sign this concept in American Sign Language. So we just did the cheat with the horns or we can say the heavy metal r hat cheat. I've also seen it with an index finger. All right, still using the ridge 12 down there. Cheat, right? Another way I've seen is with your non-dominant hand, make this handshape. It's kinda like a B. We'll put the B out, put it right here. Now make a V and go 1, 2 tdt. Alright, yet another way is with index fingers, one down here, one on your nose, kinda swivel a little bit and then go like that. Sheet. Yet another way. Index fingers again, starting up here, but now we're going to change into a V and kind of fork skewer, our index finger, TD. All right, so let's see if I can remember all of those. We have sheet, we have cheat. We have cheat sheet, and we have cheat to be consistent throughout in this course. When you see me sign-in sheet, I'll be using the poor the horns version. Haha. Alright, so cheat. Quick review. Make sure you use both hands, non-dominant hand like that in front. Dominant hand making like this. Use rid, go 1, 2. So we have teeth. Okay, So we have the pulse sentence. Let's do it. All right, This is the declarative sentence, so we don't need to do anything with question yet, we'll get there. So let's do it again. Sign with me. Geom fame on yojeum. Cheat. Now let's change it to a question we're unsure, yes, no question. So you're gonna raise your eyebrows, lean forward, inquisitive, look what's happening over there, right? This is how it looks. Gm sheet is an angel. There's no way geom cheat. Okay, so sine with me here we go. Oh, believe it. Right back to the sentence we found out. All right. Back to the question. Okay, good, good. In this lesson we learned how to sign Jim cheat the sentence of affirmative sentence. And the question, Jim cheat. Okay, wonderful. 14. YOU (pl) FART?: In this lesson, you're going to learn how to assign you fart and you've part. What do the question version, the statement version. And we're going to start with the question, okay, here's what it looks like. Okay, let's break it into parts. First, we have a personal pronoun, so the PL over there means plural. So we're saying you, but as in you all to multiple people. So I might be talking to you and a friend. Are you in a family member? So it's you all. Okay. So personal pronouns in American Sign Language or all signed with the index finger, how convenient? And you say it's the number one or just a pointer finger. Now I can't just go you because that's indicating a single person, right? You now I need to make it you all two or more people. So I'm gonna go like this. You all you, so I'm arguing here, and that indicates multiple people, two or more people, I could be given a speech to thousands of people are just talking to you and your friends. Either way it's you all. You, you plural. Alright, something very important about this pronoun. We need a differentiated from they, write, they, okay, So when we sign you all, are you plural? We're going to go in front. Pretenders and imaginary line right here, it's running vertical. When you sign you all you plural, you need to cross the line, right? When you sign, day is going to be off to the side. It could be they, Fred and George over there, sally and Mary over there. But if you go like this in front, it's no longer they, it's you all are you plural? Okay. So let's sign together. Sign with me. Let's do it a few times. Let's sine u as in you plural. You, you all. Okay, So remember, they is off to the side. They, and you as a new plural is in front, got across said imaginary line. Okay, Moving forward, fart, we have a vocabulary word. Here is this sign for fart. Nice and visual. Okay, we're going to use both hands. I'm right handed with my non-dominant hand. For me, my left hand, I'm going to make a hand shaped like the letter a in the alphabet. How do we do it? Well, go like this fingers together, bring them down, them there alongside. Okay. And I'm going to take that a and I'm going to put it about right here. All right. So the palms facing down the bottom is just facing out there. I'm going to take my dominant hand for me, my right hand, and I'm going to copy it over the bottom of the a. So this is the a down here. We're going to cup over the bottom. Now we're going to simulate the airflow of flatulents, right? We're just going to go at the same time, you can make a sound with your mouth or just kind of make the facial. You don't have to make any sound, but if you want to, you can go right from the side. From the other side. From the front again. Okay. Let's sign togethers. Sign with me. Let's sign fart three times. Here we go. Fart part. Now, this is an interesting thing, a wonderful thing about American Sign Language, that the signs that you use, you can embellish them, show more energy and more kinda oomph to them to describe the situation. So if someone far did and it was just a little far and you just like, right? But if someone choosing my words wisely, just let Zelda, huge, royal fart, that's just crazy and everybody's like, Okay, now you can embellish the sign goal. You could go like this. See how visual sign language is in a, completely captures what you're trying to describe. The message, the message that you're trying to send. Okay, So we have a small 22 small part. And we have just a, wow, a doozy. Alright, so when you're doing the big one, just let your fingers kind of wave down there like the air, which is really coming out. Okay. So quick review. Fart your non-dominant hand. So I'm right-handed my non-dominant hand, making a put it about there. Take your dominant hand brings together, going to cut down over the bottom and just make a little like some air is escaping. And you can make a sound or you can just kinda purse your lips. Okay, we just had fun talk here about this sign for fart. Okay, so now we know all parts of the sentence. So this is how Ruby, and here it's a question so we need to make sure we communicate it as a question. So take a look at me. This is how we do it. Okay. So what is a yes, no question. Did you fart, Did you off part? So at the end or when you're signing far at least at the end of the sentence, raise your eyebrows, lean forward, sika, a look that you're trying to look over the fence, What the heck is happening over there? You asking for information. So here we go. All right, so sine with me, Let's do it a couple times. Okay, So now we've been asking the question. Now let's answer the question. Yeah, It happened. There we go. So it's a statement, so don't have to do any of the questions. Stop to stay down. Maybe at the end you cannot a little bit. Here's what it would look like if it's a declarative sentence. All right, so remember if you need to embellish, it was just a doozy of a part. Okay. So a sign with me. Let's do it two times is to the sentences statement. Here we go. And if there's something that you know, it really does pleases you, you can put an unpleasant look on your face, right? You can be like, How could you in the middle of the funeral? Ah, okay. Let us go back and do the question. Here we go. And this statement. Okay, so in this lesson we learned how to sign you fart as a new plural you off part. And the statement, you've part. Okay. 15. SHE BURP.: In this lesson, you're going to learn how to sign she burp and she burp. So the question the statement let's get started with the statement. Here's what it looks like. All right, let's break it into parts. Are it's a personal pronoun. What do we know about all of the hand shapes for personal pronouns in American Sign Language. We're going to be doing a lot of pointing. So we're going to use the pointer finger, right? Let me repeat. All of the hand shears for personal pronouns are index finger, the pointer finger, I, he, she, they stopped like that. Here we have xi, okay, so we're going to use a pointer finger. So let's pretend it's Sally and she's over there. We would just take that finger and point at her. She if it's Margaret, she's over there. She okay. If it's Hector, if it's Henry, we're still going to use that index finger and point because he, she, it, that individual, that person. It's all the same sign is gender neutral. Now what do I mean by gender neutral? Well, if you've ever studied a Romance language like Spanish, there's often a feminine form. In a masculine form in American sign language, there is a pointer form and it works for everything. He, she, it that person, that individual. The main thing is that it's a single person. Okay. So for she, wherever the person is, she heat single individual, just 0.1 time. Now you're thinking that's great when they're present, but what happens? They're not here, but we're talking about them. Okay. So let's say we're talking about Mary, but she's not here. What you're gonna do is make the same sign, but just off to the side. The idea, the concept where she's inner conversation which is not physically here. To help you out, just pretend that there's an imaginary Mary right over here and you're pointing at her. She she's not here. You can do it over here as well. She just be consistent when you're signing sheet. If she walks in the door, problem-solved, she point at 0. Okay, let's move to burp. Here is the sign for burp. Okay, use your dominant hand. I'm right handed. So first we're gonna do is make the letter O. How do you make the letter O? Well, go like this fingers together. Put all of the tips of the fingers together with the tip of the thumb. Now squish it down. We call it a squished. Oh, right. We have all those tips together. Put it right here, so the tips are pointing straight up and now just do a small eruption because a burp is an eruption of air right there at the same time, you notice that my mouth is kinda, kinda pretending, making the motion that a burp would make. You don't have to do with facial expression. To set an American Sign Language. It is so common to do facial expressions. So I just do it. It really helps to convey the message. Add in a facial expression. Okay, So bird from the front, from the side. From the other side. From the front again. All right. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do burp three times. Prb. Okay. Quick review. Before we get to the review, I do know a variation of this sign. All right. The motion is the same but the hand shape is a little bit different. It's going to start down here and use the index finger. So Burp. Burp. Alright, so to be consistent in this course through our new see me signing burp, I'm going to use all of the fingers like a little eruption down there. Okay. So review of the handshape, make an O, squish it down. We have the tips, put them here pointing straight up. And now just a little eruption. At the same time, open up your mouth like You're burping. Okay. We just talked about the sign for burp. And now we know all the signs for the complete sentence. So let's sign she burp and it's this statement. Okay, here we go. Right. Little bit more information. Let's pretend it is Sally and she's over there. So let's sign she Burg Let's say it's Margaret, but she's not present. She's not here. How do we sign she? Do you remember? Well, just do it off to the side. She like there's an imaginary Margaret right there. We just point adder. She burp. All right, let's go to the question. How we needed change our facial expression to communicate that it's a question. So when you're signing in or make sure at the end, eyebrows up, leaning forward like you're peeking over the fence there. What's happening? All right. So let's use Maria and Maria is over there and we're asking CBER. There we go. All right, again. All right, let's do a two times sine with me. Here we go. Let's do Maria and she's over there. Okay. Let's get back to the statement. How do we do about it? Sally, she's over here. Back to the question. Sally again over there. Okay, Good, Good. In this lesson we talked about how to sign Xi and Xi bar. Okay, wonderful. 16. THEY BAWL?: In this lesson, you're going to learn how to sign the ball and the ball statement and the question we're going to start with the question, let's do it. This is what it looks like. Okay, break it apart. First we have the pronoun, they. All right, we're going to use the index finger. That's our hand shape. Let's say it's George and Sally and they're over, there, has to be two or more people rights. They, now we're going to refer to them by using the index finger and Arkin the motion. Now we can't just do a single point because that would be he, she or a single person, that individual. We have two or more people, so we're gonna go, They, all right, let's say the group of peoples over there, we'll go, they, if they're not here, we'll just sign off to the side. They were either way when we're making the motion index finger, we're going to arc. Arc had been noticed that I have not been Arkin in front. Do you know why? Well, if we arc in front and I'm talking, I'm pointing my direction this way. It no longer means they it means to you all, as in you plural, you're talking to a group of people, even a speech, you're just talking to some friends and family, you all. So they is off to the side, pretenders and imaginary line. They is off to the side. You all crosses that line. You All right, So we're focusing on here. So it could be they could be. They could be they're up there on the catwalk. They okay. So that's how you sign the index finger are in their direction and if they're not here, just to adopt the sign, They all right, Moving forward, vocab. Here is the sign for ball. Okay, it's quite visual, which is wonderful. First thing we should mention that ball when you ball is that you're crying your eyes while you're crying like crazy, right. So that's hopefully what this sign shows. So we're going to go like this, like robot to rubber eyes, right? And then just let the rain drops fall. The tears are just fallen out late. Raindrops, ball, ball. So we start with fists. We can say the letters S in American Sign Language like this. Make a fist DOM in front. Put them here at the sides of your face and now just drop them down like they're raindrops. It's raining. Raining tiers. Ball, Ball from the side, other side, ball, ball. Now, if you really want to express the situation, you can put it in your face, right? To just show the despair, the horrible feelings, whatever. Okay. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's sign ball three times. Well, okay. Now this is an enhanced form of crime. You could say the regular sine for cry, like he's crying, she's crying, whatever to cry. Just to use your index finger. Index fingers put them in like this and just go down a couple of times, cry. But we're now talking about crime. We're talking about balling in this situation, so all right. Okay. Quick review. Two-fifths right here, put them here, the sodium have your face. I touch lightly. You wouldn't have to just get close and then go down like rain drops of tears. Ball, add in a nice, juicy facial emotion. You laid on thick BOL. Okay. We just talked about the sign for ball. All right. Let's do the complete sentence. It's the question. So what do we do? Well, when we get to the end or throughout this whole sentence because it's nice and short. Raise those eyes, eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. So here's what it looks like. Okay, now you might be thinking, when we sign ball, are we supposed to put on this lay horrible face? Well, we kind of have conflicting movements with the eyebrows here. So here's ball, right? Eyebrows are kinda downs were showing sadness and all that. But when we want to do a question, we need to raise them up. So in this situation, raising up the question is going to overpower the eyebrows for ball, all right, We're still going to make those hand position, hand shapes. The movements are going to be exactly the same, but raised those eyebrows, okay, if you're signing ball, the sign for ball all by itself, then you would just go like this. All right, but since it's a question now, we gotta get those eyebrows up because you need to make sure that the person resigning with or whoever we're signing with knows that we're talking we're trying to communicate cater question. Okay, So here we go. Let's do it again. They ball. Okay, let's do this statement now here you're welcome. Neglect the eyebrows down because you really want to show it. We don't have to worry about overruling the eyebrow position and get a question, right? Okay. So they ball, here we go. Just the statement you cannot at the end, if you want to make sure it's an affirmative statement. Here we go. All right. Let's do the question again. Eyebrows, eyebrows, and the statement. Here we go. Okay, In this lesson we talked about how to sign the ball. And this statement, they ball. Okay, good, good. 18.

Okay, so that was the name. Now we have puzzled. Here is the sign for puzzled. See you the face. It's puzzle, It's perplexed. Now the hand shape is the letter x, like in the alphabet X-Y-Z. How do you make an x star like this? Last three fingers down them in front and we have that index finger curve it down like Captain Hook, ha, take the back part of the x and just place it against your forehead. Add in a facial expression that's like and you have puzzled. Puzzle from the sign. Puzzle. Puzzled from the other side. Puzzle. Puzzle. From the front again. Puzzled. Let's do it three times, starting from the rest position, sign with me. Here we go. Puzzle. Puzzle. Puzzle. A variation which is quite similar just a little bit off to the side is like this. Okay, so the x is kinda starting straight and then pulling back in, forming the full x over here and just go into the side of the head, still put in their facial expression. Puzzled to be consistent in this course, whenever you see me signing puzzle, I'm gonna do it like this. So I'm going to put the X-rayed here more or less in the middle of my forehead with the facial expression has puzzled. Okay, quick review. The handshape is the letter x in the alphabet x. Take the back part of the x and just place it on your forehead, add in a hat and you have puzzle. Now this concept also works for the words, English words bemused, perplexed, puzzled, right? So we just talked about how to sign. Puzzled. Okay, We know the whole sentence. Let's do this statement. Here we go. Tea, puzzled. Puzzled. Few times. Sine with me. Here we go.

Okay, so start with your index finger of your dominant hand. I'm right handed. Just going to start like that. Now touch the sign of your head and you're going to go down like this. All right, so the ending hand shapes are just loose hands, kinda like claws, and they just go down and they freeze. At the same time, you can open your eyes because whatever you're seeing is shocking heavy, right? So we have shocked. So index finger down to loose hands from the sign chart, other side from the front. Whenever I see this sign and actually makes me think of brain freeze, which I suppose could work. You're walking in the woods and a huge bear jumps out, you're probably shocked. Okay. So starting from the rest position, signed with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Shocked. Shocked. Shocked. All right. A couple of things. It's pretty quick, right? You're not going shocked. It's just out there because the emotion would be quick. So show it when you're signing. Shocked. Okay, a couple of variations for this concept of shocked. I have seen shocked like this. All right, so we have this kinda lose handshape here and the three fingers kinda dart out. Shocked. I've also seen it where all the fingers dart out shocked. Shocked, right? Same thing with the eyes. You know. Whenever you see me in this course signing shocked, I'll be signing it like this.

We just talked about how to sign dry. Okay. All right. We know the signs. We fingers spell the word. Let's put it all together and do the question. Now remember this is a yes, no question. So we're going to raise our eyebrows. Lean forward a little bit. It's kinda like you're looking over a fence. You want to know what's going on over there. Right? You don't have to stay like this to the whole sentence. If you don't want, you can just wait till you get to, get to the end.

Here is the sign for boots. Okay. We're going to use the same handshape. Yes. For both hands, there's going to be the letter B from the alphabet a, B, C. Now how do you make a be? Well, start like this, fingers together, thumb in front. Here, we have two Bs, okay, take those bees, put them down here so the palms are facing down. All right, so we have that. Now we're just going to tap together twice. We have boots. Boots from the side boots. Other side. Boots from the front again, boot. All right. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Boots. Boots. Okay. A variation to this sign that is pretty much different is to go like this. Boots. Okay, Now see if I can explain the meaning of this sign. Pretend like this is your leg, right. And usually when you were boots, they're higher up than shoes. So we're showing the length boots. Boots. And it's still going to use a B hand shape and you just kinda chop on your arm there twice above the elbow. And that's another way to assign boots, boots to be consistent throughout this course, I will be signing books like this, where we have the two b's are down here and double tap. Okay, so quick review. Hand shapes the same letters B, letter B, button down here, 1, 2, boots. Okay, we just talked about how to sign books. All right. Okay, Let's learn another vocabulary word. Here is how we assign. Weird. Okay, use your dominant hand. I'm right handed, so I'm going to use this hand and we're going to make the letter W, like an alphabet, x w, x, y, z, w. How do we make it? W will take your thumb and you're just going to pin down your pinky finger, leave those three middle fingers up, that's a W or W. Take that W, turn it so the palms facing up to the side, put it here in front of your face, not beside your face. A little bit in front. Now we're just going to curl the fingers as we go across. Weird, weird, weird. Okay. Now you could sign like a robot or you could do it that people do. They add in a facial expression to their face, right? So we have weird, something doesn't look right. So it's weird. Okay. So we go like this from the side. Weird. From the other side. Weird. All right. Put that facial expression and an air and it just adds so much to the situation. If you like. The probably you don't understand you, but if you go like this, they're really going to understand you. Okay? So starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Weird. Weird. Okay. Slight variation that I've seen for this sign is that when I was signed it as had been teaching you, the W is up here and it almost crosses in front of our eyes right now I've also seen it where it's lower and it's more in front of the chin, like this. Same facial expression. But just a little bit lower closer to the front of the chin. Alright, to be consistent in this course, I'll be signing it closer to the eyes right across here. Weird. Weird. Okay, quick review. Handshape is the letter W, turn the W, So it's here. Now go across in front of your face as you bend down the tips of the fingers. Weird. Adding the facial expression to give it the total package. Weird. Okay. We just talked about how to sign. Weird. All right. We know all the signs. We have fingers spelled the name. Let's do it. Let's put it together. Here we go. Chris. Boots. Weird. Maybe he has some sort of rind stone, snake skin, Hard pink velvet was going on and people are just weird. Okay, so let's do it again. Chris. Boots. Weird. Hmm, I suppose Chris could be a guy or girl unisex name there. So once again, let's do it. Signed with me. Chris boots. Weird. Okay. Let's jump into the question now to yes, no questions. What do we need to do with our face? Well, we need to raise their eyebrows, lean forward. Remember, it's kinda like looking over a fence. Something's happening over there. I want to check it out. Okay. So when you sign the sentence, makes sure at the end you're communicating a yes, no question. Eyebrows up, lean forward. Right here we go. Let's do it. Chris. Boots. Weird. All right. Let's do it. It's fine with me. All right, and back to this statement. Nice neutral facial expression or else just not at the end. Sharing information. And the question. All right, so in this lesson we talked about how to sign Chris boots weird. And the question, Chris boots, weird. Alright, fabulous. 30. KACY COAT HEAVY.: Let's talk about how to sign Casey coat heavy and Casey code heavy, right? We have the question, the statement and we're going to start with the statement. So here's how it looks. Okay, Let's break it apart. We have a name, so let's finger spell. Here we go. K, a, C. Why? Casey? Casey. Quicker. Casey. Okay. It's a vocabulary word. Here's how we assign coat. It even looks like we're putting on a coat. Coat. Now the hand shapes are the same. We have the letter a from the alphabet, a, B, C, a. How do you make it a? Well, go like this. Fingers together, fingers down, thumb alongside. Okay, now the idea here is imagine you have a big cold winter coat, whatever, grab those edges and you're putting it on your pulling it up over your shoulders. Okay. So take the A's start over here and just bring them in, right when you finish the knuckles are facing here like phase alpha. So we have code, code from the side. From the other side. Quote, quote from the front again. Code. Okay, Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Coat. Coat code. Okay. You notice I'm kinda bouncing. It just seems natural for me. I guess we're in my winter Coleman. I was little. I would bounce to get the big code up on it was just easier than sliding it over your shoulders. So if you want to bounce, that says Fine. Quote, Alright, a slight variation to this sine, same hand shapes, but starting out here and then going all the way down here. So the knuckles are facing down. So that is a variation. You may see quote, quote, to be consistent in this course, I'm going to be signing code like this, quote. So when you finish the knuckles are facing each other. Coat. Quick review, hand shapes. We had the letters a, start here you're grabbing the edge of your code and just put it on. We have code. Okay. We just talked about how to sign coat. Okay, let's learn how to sign. Another word. Here is assigned for heavy. Okay, pretty self-explanatory in quite visual as well. You have something and it's heavy. The hand shapes are like this, kinda like claws. Started your hands like this, fingers spread apart. Notice Ben, the fingertips. Kinda like claws. Put them down here, palms facing up. And notice bounds twice. Heavy, heavy. Now we're now back here. Now we're over here. We're just here, right straight out. Heavy from the sign. Heavy. From the other side. Heavy. Heavy. The front again. Okay. Starting from the rest position, sign with mainList two or three times. Heavy. Heavy. Heavy. Okay. Quick review. Hand shapes like claws they're putting down here, palms facing up, just bounce twice. Now, something interesting, which is wonderful about American Sign Language, to embellish the sign, to give more information about the situation. So the signs the same. But you can show kind of how heavy it is. So which is not a big deal. All right, but if it's like backbreaking images are so heavy, shown in your face? Right? Heavy. Like really heavy. Okay, good, good. We just talked about how to sign heavy. All right. We have the puzzle pieces, Let's put them together and sign this statement. Okay, so this NADH, or have a neutral facial expression at the end of the sentence. All right, Here we go. Casey. Code heavy. Casey code heavy. Alright, few times there we go. Sign with me. Okay. Let's do the question a half. Yes, no question. Raise those eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. Kinda like you're peeking over appends, right? Right. Okay. So Casey, code heavy, Let's do it. Casey coat heavy. Casey coat, heavy. Alright, back to the statement. Here we go. And the question. Okay, good, good. In this lesson we learned how to sign Casey code heavy and AUC code heavy. Okay. 32. I STEAL KNIFE?: In this lesson, you're going to learn how to sign. I still knife. And I still knife. We have the statement, we have the question. Well, we're going to start with the question. Here's what it looks like. Okay, let's break it apart. Personal pronoun, what do we know about the hand shapes for personal pronouns in American Sign Language? It's, they're all the same. We're going to use our index finger, right? So we're just doing i. So this point at yourself. I it also works for me. Right? Single motion, ie Mm-hm. Mm-hm. Steel. Here is the sign for steel. Okay. We're going to use both hands now I'm right-handed. So with my non-dominant hand person just going to make a fist. Now I'm going to lay down my arm here, so it's slightly at an angle and my elbows down here, okay, with my dominant hand, I'm going to make the letter V, like in the alphabet U, V, W, V. How do you make a V? Well, start like this pinky ring finger down, thumb on top of the ring finger. Now leave the index finger and middle finger apart. Like it's a peace sign, right? That's v. Put it together. That's a u we don't want to you. We want to be okay. Take the inside of the side part of the index finger, lightly touch your elbow, and now we're going to pull back in. As you pull back, you're going to bend the bunny ears. You're going to bend the fingers. All right? Steel. Steel. And it's usually a quick motion because just think about if someone steals something, they're not going to go slow motion and increase their risk of getting caught. They're gonna do it quick. So just go steal from the side. Steal other side. Steal from the front again. Steel. Okay. From the rest position. Sign with me. Let's do it three times. Steel. Steel. Okay. So I have noticed have, have seen a variation to this sign. Okay. So with the non-dominant hand, instead of going like this, I've seen it where they use this handshape and they go like this. Now the dominant hand stays the same with the V. It goes underneath and it pulls back. So it's the same motion just straight in front and pulling it in. So steel. Now you may see that variation depending on where you're from and how your local deaf communities signs it to be consistent in this course. Whenever you see me sign-in steel, I'm going to sign it like this. Okay. Quick review. Non-dominant hand. Put it up like this. Elbow down here, dominant hand. We're going to use the v. Take the side of the index finger, lightly touch your elbow and pull it up. And when you pull it up, straight fingers become curved fingers. The bunny ears bend down. All right. So we have steel. Okay, good, good. We just talked about how to sign steel. Okay. Knife. Here is the sign for knife. Okay, we're going to use both hands and the hand shapes are the same. We're going to use the letters eight, so the letter H, okay, now how do you make an h? Well, you can start like this. We're going to put the ring, ring finger pinky down, but these two fingers together, but the thumb in there just alongside the middle finger now tilt, tilted down like this. You have two H's. Aha. Okay. So I'm right-handed with my non-dominant hand. May take that H and I'm going to put it right here. Okay? My dominant hand, I'm going to use it on top and I'm going to go like this, 1, 2, right? Maybe it's a big carrot in your appeal in it or it's a stick in your sharpening it. All right. 12. So we have knife knife, knife. Other side. Knife from the front again. Okay. Rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Knife. Knife. Knife. Okay. A couple of things. You may be thinking, well, this looks quite similar to another sign name. Okay, so let me show you both of them. First, I'll sign knife and then assign name and you tell me if you can The difference. Would you let me know if you see the difference? Okay, here we go. Knife name. Well, the hand shapes are the same. We have two H's ones there and the other one's coming out on top, but with the name or just double-tap and it goes straight up and down, right? With knife, it's like you're carving something, you're the tip of a sticker sharpening it, something like that. So same handshape, but the motion is different. Once again, we have name and we have knife. Okay. A few variations that I've seen for the sign for knife. Okay. I've seen it with index fingers instead of Hs. So the index fingers and then they go like this. I've seen in multiple directions. So we have knife, I've also seen knife like you're cutting instead of like slicing a knife. Let's see what else have we seen? I think that is a boat, it to be consistent in this course when I signed knife, you're going to see with the H's, alright, one down there, the other here and like that. Okay, quick review. Remember hand shapes are Hs, Hs, one there, another one here. Like you're sharpening a stick or cutting up the tip of a carrot to swipes. We have ninth. Okay. We just talked about how to sign. Okay. Let's get to the full sentence. I steel knife. Now this is a yes, no question. So we're going to be raising your eyebrows, leaning forward a little bit, like there's a fence and you're looking over what the heck is happening over there. Alright, let's sign it. Here we go. I steel knife. I steel knife. Alright, let's do it a few times. Sine with me. Here we go. I didn't I swear. Okay. Let's make it into a statement. Okay. So you can have a serious look on your face. Just a neutral locker just kinda not at the end. But either way we don't want to communicate a question here, so we're not going to raise your eyebrows, are not doing any of that. Here we go. I did it. I still knife. Right again a couple of times. Back to the question. How would you do it? Using those eyebrows? It's a yes, no question. I'm innocent. I swear. All right. Statement. Okay. Fabulous. In this lesson, we talked about how to sign I still knife and this statement, I still ninth. Okay. Good. Good. 33. HE WITHDRAW CASH.: Let's learn how to sign he withdraw cash and he withdraw cash. Statement question by golly, let's start with the question. Here's what it looks like. Okay, let's break it apart. Personal pronoun he, What is the handshape for all personal pronouns in American Sign Language? It's the index finger, that's right, the pointer finger, we could even say it's the number one. Now we're just going to be pointing. Okay. So he lets say it's Henry and he's over there. We just pointed him. He is George. He's over there. We just point he. Okay, something wonderful. This is the third person singular. He, she, it, the same sign works for all of them. So you can have HI you can have S0, you would have it, you'd have that individual that person a has. The important thing is that it's a single motion because it's a single person. All right. This is what we would say. It's a gender neutral sign because it works for whatever gender you are. Now This is wonderful because many languages, Romance languages, they have a masculine and feminine form for many of the words. Now sign language, they just have a pointing, a pointer form. It's very efficient. Okay, So let's say is George, but he's not here. How do we point at him? Well, we just point off to the side. He, now if you want something to imagine that your point in a pretenders and imaginary George or Henry or whoever it is, and they're right there and you just point at them. All right. So when you're referring to them, just point out to the side. You want to point over here, that's fine. But just be consistent. Your imaginary George wouldn't be hopping back and forth. George walks in the door, ah, problem-solved. He is not here, off to the side. He okay. Withdraw. Here is the sign for withdraw. Okay. We're going to use both hands. I'm right handed with my non-dominant hand. First, I'm going to make the letters C, like in the alphabet a, B, C, right? Now, take that c and stretch it out. All right, so it's like a sharp but it's really opening his mouth. So we have a big wide open C. Alright, fingers are still together just like that. Put it about here. Take your dominant hand for me, my right-hand. Leave it loose. Now reach in there, grab it and pull it out. And we are withdrawing or sticking your hand in and we're grabbing something and we're pulling it out. Very visual. Mason, straightforward for withdraw. Withdraw. So when you finish and we have the S hand-shaped here, handshape, we also say a fist, open, grab, pull it out. There we go right from the side. Withdraw. Withdraw from the other side. Withdraw from the front again. Okay. Rest position. Sign with me. Let's do it three times. Withdraw. Withdraw. I can't help but being reminded of when I was in karate as a kid, which stay in focus in serious here. Alright, so we have withdraw. All right, so quick review. Both hands, non-dominant hand make that big wide open. See there, stick it there because that's your opening where you're putting your hand in, your grabbing it and you're pulling it out. When you finish, we end in s position just a straight there. All right. We just talked about how to sign withdraw. Withdraw. Okay. We have a sentence and we need to know how to sign cash. Here is the sign for cash. Notice something. It doesn't really have its own sign. We just finger spell it, right? You're going to notice in American Sign Language, short little words, or even like bus, cash is a great example. It's just easier to finger spell it. It's just very short and quick. All right, now for beginners are like, Well, I'm just learning fingers spell in a her. Well, it's part of the improvement process, right? So let's take a moment. We're going to spell out cash will go slowly and will increase the speed. And what makes improvement? Practice, practice, practice. Okay, Let's do catch. Here we go. See A S H C a S H, speeding up, C a S H. Cash, cash. Cash. Okay, watch my H at the end. This is quite common. I see people sign in or fingers spelling cash. It's like they just toss that eight up there at the end, right? Some people do that. Some people will like this and leave the more horizontal AS we can say, people just throw it up there. All right, I leave it up to you. Alright, so let's do cache a few times, a little bit closer to regular speed. Cache. Cache. Okay, Good, Good. All right. All sentence and it's a question. What kind of question? Yes, no question. Because this is a question you can answer with answer with yes, no. I suppose you could say maybe, but we'll consider it a yes, no question. Raised those eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. Pretend like there's a fence and you're looking over who something's interesting over there. So he withdraws cash. He withdraws cash. Okay, let's sign it. He withdraw cash. He withdraw cash. Alright, here we go a little bit quicker. He withdraw cash. All right, let's go to this statement. You knew it was coming, right? Don't worry about the I rows. You can have a serious face, you haven't nodding face, a neutral face. The main thing is that we do not want to communicate a question, we're just sharing information. It's a statement, a declarative sentence. Let's do it. E, withdraw, cash. Withdraw cash. Right again, a couple of times, sine with me. Back to the question, how do we do it? And the statement? Well, that's the question I had. Let's do the statement. Once the n Okay, wonderful. In this lesson we talked about how to sign he withdraw cash and he withdraw cash. All right. So he would try cache is I rose up and the statement, don't worry about the eyebrows. Serious soccer, not at the end. Okay. Good. Good. 34. THEY HIDE SAILBOAT?: Let's talk about how to sign. They hide sailboat and they hide sailboat. Statement question. We're going to jump right into the question. So here's how it looks. Okay, Let's break it apart. They personal pronoun index finger, that's right index finger for all personal pronouns in American Sign Language. Now this is what it looks like. They, they, now it's off to the side. Pretend there's an invisible line here. If we do, they need to be off to the side. It's Arkin because we need to indicate two or more people, but it's one person singular, we would just point but we have they. So we're going to arc now it could be Tom, George, Harry Sally who a whole bunch of just two people. They, if they're over here, we could just point at them. They if they're behind us, they ha if they're not here. But we're talking about them. We're talking about Mary and Tom, but they're not here. We'll just do it off to the side. They they bring kind of have an imaginary Mary and Tom here and we're just they, you do it over here as well. They okay. Important. Do not go like this in front if you want to sign they because it means do you remember do you know you All right. Index fingers. Same but if you arc in front, it means you all, because you are crossing that invisible line, that imaginary line cross it. It means you all stay up to the side. It means they pay. Okay, good, good. Vocabulary word. Here is the sign for hide. Okay, we're going to use both hands. I'm right-handed, so with my non-dominant hand, I'm going to make this handshape right here, star like this, bringing us together tom alongside. Now there's curb it down and we're going to put it here, alright, with your dominant hand, just make the letter a goal like this. Bring us together. Fingers down tom alongside. Now take the a, the thumbs kinda pointing up there. Now put it under, alright, and let it stick out there. That is hide. Like you're taking something and you're hiding it. You can put a covert, kind of mysterious look on your face if you want to hide. Now what we need the motion here. Oh, right from the side. Hide from the other side. Right from the front. All right. Rest position. Sign with me. Let's do it three times. Hide. Hide. Okay. Do remember how I mentioned that we need the motion because there is another sign which is very, very similar. I have the sign for tertile of all things turtle. Okay. So this is the sign for turtle. All right, it looks exactly like the end hand position hand shapes for hide. So here's hide, and now this is turtle. Now a big difference with turtle is we're wiggling the head, right? You're going to wiggle your thumb to show the movement of the turtle's head. Alright. I just stick it in there. No need to wiggle. All right, so once again we have turtle and we have Hide. Alright, hide. The emphasis on you take something in your covertly sticking it away, hide in it somewhere. High. Need that motion. Hi and turtle once again, just a nice fun sign. Turtle. Okay, quick review. Dominant hand. We're going to make the letter a non-dominant hand. We're gonna make this kinda cupped handshape. Remember for the turtle is to shell. Same handshape for hide that a dominant hand goes like this, put it there. Now we're going to go like this and make the motion for hide. Hide, right? Good, good. We just talked about how to sign hide. Okay. And they hide what? They hide a sailboat. Here is the sign for sailboat. Okay. Alright. The hand shapes are the same. All right. They're going to be like this. Let's see, I'm going to teach you another sign which is very, very related, the sign for boat because they have the same hand shapes go like this fingers together, Tom's alongside another flat no, curve them in. Now put them here. Go 12. That is boat. Alright. It even looks like a boat, one to boat. Boat. All right. So I'm actually going out just a little bit like 12. Like the boat is right in the river rapids or whatever. 12, that's boat. Okay. Now with those bone hand shapes, okay, we're going to convert it into a sailboat. Alright, so your non-dominant hand for me, my left one, that's going to stay over here. That's going to be the boat. Now the dominant hands going to flip up to become this sale. Now we take the non-dominant hand and we put it behind. So we have a sailboat here and we go 1, 2. Remember how PR boat we went 1, 2, while sailboat, same thing. 12. Okay. So remember hand shapes like that? The alongside, curve it down. Non-dominant hand. The fingers just go behind the hand right here. So the fingers up here are loose and free. That's the sale 12. Sailboat from the side. Sailboat. Other side. Sailboat. Sail boat from the front again. Okay. Rest position sign with me. Let's do it three times. Sailboat. Sailboat. I have seen a variation for the sign sailboat, and I would describe it as a very elegant sign. So here's what I would say. So non-dominant hand, we're going to make this handshape. Let the Tom just hang out there, stick it down there. That's like the boat itself right now we're going to use same handshape, but we're going to put it up here. It's curved a little bit because that's the sale. Now we're going to start here and we're just going to glide, right? There's no bouncing movement is just a nice elegant glide, right? That's another sign that I've seen for sailboat is imagined in at the same time they blow, they go against the wind. Neat. Okay, so that's an, another variation. You may see sailboat. To be consistent in this course. You're going to see me sign-in sailboat like this. Sailboat. Alright. So remember regular boat was 12 like that. Looks like a boat sailboat. Just take those pieces like this one too. All right. Quick review. Hand shapes, fingers together terms alongside, curve them down there, right? Non-dominant hand goes behind right here. This stays up straight. So it's the sale and 12 sailboat. Okay. We just talked about how to sign sailboat. Okay. Let's put it all together. It's a question. What kinda question? You got it? Yes. No question. So raise those eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. So it's going to be like this. They hide sailboat. They hide sailboat. Remember an easy way to remember a yes, no question pertaining have offense and you have to lean forward a little bit, raise your eyebrows to look over it. You know, what's happening over there. Okay. So let's sign it. Let's sign they hide sailboat. They pied sailboat. All right. Again again, here we go. They hide sailboat. Right, Sam, with me. Let's do it a few times. I rose up. All right, let's do the statement. All right, no eyebrows. Neutral expression may be not at the end, you're affirming something, you're sharing information. They hide sailboat. They hide sailboat. Right. So remember when you're signing hide, you gotta make the motion because if you just go straight up and if you wiggle your DOM, It's what it means turtle we're not signing day turtle sailboat when we're deciding they hide sailboat. Right. Okay. Okay. There we go. All right. So let's do it again. They hide sailboat. Okay, back to the question. He ha and this statement. Okay, In this lesson we learned how to sign. They hide sailboat. And they hide sailboat. And we also learned two bonus signs. Remember, the sign per boat, What was it? Like? They're both two times boat. And what was assigned for turtle. Turtle. Turtle. And this quick note, remember the main difference between high tide and turtle is that would hide you have the motion you're putting it in there and also turtle, you know, you wiggle the head a little bit. Okay, Good, good. 36. SETH CAN UNDERSTANDING.: Let's learn how to sign set can understanding and Seth can understanding, right? We have the question statement and we're going to jump in and start with this statement. So here's what it looks like. Okay, let's break it into parts. First we have the name. All right, so let's finger spell S, E, T, H. Seth. Seth. Little bit quicker. Set. Seth. Okay, good, good. I can hear is assigned four can. Okay. Hand shapes are the same for both hands. Yahoo, okay, they're going to be the letter S, I ha, like S and Alphabet could also say like fists pull up your dukes. Hahaha, I'm holding two S's. How to make S's. Well, go like this. Fingers together, bringing them down, put your thumb in front and now you have two fifths. Now take those fists, put them a boat here the palms are facing down or kinda inward right now we'll just drop them straight down. Can Can from the sign. Can other side again. From the front again. All right. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Can can again, quick review, just use those Ss, the fist hand shapes, put them here right here, and just drop them down. Can we just talked about how to sign can understanding? Here is the sign for understanding. Okay, we're going to be using the same hand shapes, the same movement, even though their place just a little bit apart, different. Okay, so let's take a look at the flicking motion. We're going to use our index finger and it's going to be behind the thermal little bit and we're just going to flick it out. Flick it out. Alright, so the palms are going to be facing in and you're gonna be going like that. All right. We're going to be making the motion with both hands. Now. The sign for understanding is based on the sign for understand. And here's how we assign understand. You cannot understand. It's up here, it's close to my head, right? Understand. Okay. Now to sign the concept of understanding, kinda like, you know, you're compassionate, you see what's going on. Maybe empathetic, something like that, understanding. We're going to go like this. All right, so we're gonna do one flick to flicks and a third flake and then not understanding. Understanding from the sign. Understand. Other side. Understanding. All right. From the front again. Understanding. All right. Rest position, sign with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Understanding. Understanding. Okay, Now there is another sign which is similar, but it's different enough that once you know the difference, it will be no problem. It's designed for popcorn. All right, so this is what popcorn looks like. Alright, now see it has that flicking motion. I'm just going twice 12 and it's out in front of me. All right. So let's see, here's the test first ominous sign understanding. And then I'm going to sign popcorn. You can see if you can work out the difference. Okay, here we go. Here is understanding and popcorn. All right, so can you see the difference? Well, the main differences are popcorn is out in front. Just imagine it's hard popcorn, hot pan, whatever you're using to make the popcorn, it's hot. So keep it in front of you, right? Popcorn. Now for understanding, because it's based on the sign. Understand. Aha, keep it close to the head. Understanding. All right. Once again, popcorn bonus sign Yahoo. Popcorn. Understanding. Okay, quick review the hand shapes. We're going to be using this and we're leaking out the index fingers. Right? Because that is understand. That's what understandings based on. Understand. So we're gonna go 123 and do some head shaking. Oh, yeah. I gotcha. Understanding. Okay. We just talked about how to sign understanding. Okay. It looks like we have all the parts for this sentence. Why don't we start sign in and do it. This is the statement, okay, so neutral expression on your face, maybe not a bit, but remember no questions, no eyebrows like that too. Here we go. Seth can understanding. Seth can understanding. Okay. Again, let's do it a few times. Sine with me. Okay. Let's jump to the question. Remember yes, no question. Raise those eyebrows. Lean forward a little bit. Pretend like you're looking over a fence. That's how this facial expression is how we are going to communicate. A yes-no question. So sine you can sign Seth and can and not have any facial expression. Once you get to understanding, make sure those eyebrows are up. When you get to the end of the sentence, eyebrows up, lean forward. Okay, let's do it. Seth. Can Understanding. Set. Can Understanding. Right a few times. Here we go. Alright, back to the statement. Let's do it. And the question. Okay, wonderful. In this lesson we talked about how to sign ceph can understanding. Seth can understanding. Okay, good, good. 37. SUZY TRY CLOSE-MINDED.: Let's talk about how to sign. Suzy, try closed minded. And Suzy try close minded. All right. We have the question, the statement. We're going to start with the statement. Here's what it looks like. Okay, breaking it apart. Let's start with the name. Okay, So we are going to finger spell here we go. S, U, Z, Y. Susie. Susie. Little bit quicker. Susie. Okay. Try. Here is assigned four. Try. Okay. The hand shapes are going to be the same. We're going to use the letter a, like a, B, C in the alphabet a. How to make an a? Well, go like this. Fingers down, thumbs alongside we have a is yes. So start here and we're just going to make this kinda curved motion like this. All right. Try, try. Try. Try. Other side. Try from the front again. Try. Okay. Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do try three times. Try. Try. Okay. Now we're using a handshape. I have seen it done using the S handshape. So try S handshape. I've seen it done with the T handshape. Try okay, to be consistent in this course, we're going to be using a handshape try. Now, I would urge you to take a look at your local deaf community and sine try how they sign it. So once again, to be consistent this course we're going to use a hand shapes. Try. All right? We just talked about how to sign trying. Close minded. Here's how we assign close minded. It's actually two parts, right? We have mined and we have closed. We got those gates. Push shutting her. So first part user index finger, just tap the side your head, right? That's actually sign for think for mind in this situation, will it work for mind? And now we're gonna do the closed part right here, the hand shapes bringing together thumbs alongside, put them abroad here and just slam a Min. All right. Slam the door shut. It's not a slow motion. It's more like. All right, so we have closed minded. Close-minded. Other side? Close minded from the front again. Okay. So quick review, weight, not review. We're doing practice. Yeah. That's right. Starting from the rest position. Signed with me. Let's do it three times. Here we go. Close minded. Okay, so maybe you notice my facial expression. Usually when we use this term is to describe something kinda negative that is, does not give us pleasure, were unhappy about. So put it in your face, relevant pieces you are when you're trying to convince someone, but they just won't listen evidence because they're so close minded. Put it in your face. Right? Quick review, index finger, mind. Now these hand shapes here, slam the door shut altogether. We have closed minded. Okay. We just talked about how to sign close minded. Okay. So we have the full sentence. Why don't we start signing. This is the statement, okay, the declarative sentence. Let's jump in. Put all the parts together. We know all the parts. Why not do it? Here we go. Suzy? Try close minded. Alright, let's do it a few times. Sine with me. Okay. There was this statement. What do we do? The question yes. In it's a yes, no question. Raised those eyebrows when you get to the end of the sentence, have this kinda look on your face. Lean forward a little bit. Eyebrows up. It's a yes, no question. That's how we communicated with the facial expression. All right. Let's do it. Suzy. Try close minded. Suzy, try close Mindon. Alright, few times sine with me, Let's do it.

And the question, Suzy, try closed minded. Okay, wonderful. 38. SARA FEEL LENIENT.: Let's talk about how to sign Sarah field lenient, and Sarah feel lenient. So we have the question and we have the statement. We're going to jump in and do this statement first. So here's what it looks like. All right, let's break it into parts. Are ha we have a name, so we're going to do what? Fingerspell, right? Let's finger spell the name. Here we go. Es a r, a Sarah. Sarah. A little bit quicker. Sarah. Sarah. Feel. Here is the sign for feel. Nice. Short quick sign. Use your dominant hand. Okay, I'm right-handed. This handshape fingers spread apart, plant. Take the middle finger, just the middle finger and bend it down. All right, Now we're going to use the tip of the middle finger and we're going to swipe up once at the side of our chest, feel feel. And I am actually making contact with the tip of the finger and the side of my chest. Feel from the side. Feel from the other side. Feel okay from the front again. Feel all right Starting from the rest position, sign with me. Let's do feel three times. Feel Feel. Okay. You notice how it's just a quick motion. We're not going slow motion, whatever. We're just doing a quick touch on the side of our texts tests. We could say quick swipe up, feel. Okay, good, good. We just talked about how to sign feel. Lenient. Here is how we sign lenient. Okay. You probably noticed it's a two-part sign. Okay, so to get this concept across in American Sign Language, we're going to go like this. Now literally it's hard, soft, which makes sense lenient. Now you could be extremely, what's the word? Strict, right? It is laying on the rules and following or you can be more lenient. You could be more hard, soft, lenient. Okay. So we have two signs in there. We have a heart and we have soft. Let's talk about heart. Now if you take hard just by itself, okay? First we're going to make this handshape right here. Go like that. Fingers spread apart. Take the middle finger, bend it down, use the tip of the middle finger and you're going to tap twice on your heart. Heart. Apart from the sign? Heart, other side. Heart. From the front. Heart. Okay. Just tap twice with the middle finger. The tip of the middle finger on your heart? Heart. Okay. Now the sign for soft is like this. All right, so we have these open hands here, this loose and we're going to go down twice. 1, 2, soft. Just have a neutral, pleasant look on your face. Okay, so the two signs are heart soft. Okay, now, ASL is all about efficiency. Notice that English spoken English is very focused on grammatically being grammatically correct. There's slang and stuff, but in more professional environments, you know, gotta be grammatically correct at, at, at butter. Now, ASL, I would argue, is all about efficiency. So here is a good example. So lenient the concept in American Sign Language is hard, soft. Now if you do it each side individually, it would be double-tap for heart and two motions for soft. But we are going for efficiency. So in ASL we can go like this. Hard, soft. Alright, Did you notice I didn't tap twice for heart this time? One tap and one motion down here. So we'll just do one motion of each sign is very efficient and it gets across the concept of lenient. So per linear we're going to go hard, soft. In other words, lenient. Lenient from the sign. Lenient. Other side. Okay. From the front again. Lenient. Right? Rest position. Sign with me. Let's do it three times. Lenient. Lenient. Okay. Quick review. It's a two-part sign literally is going to be hard, soft, and that's how we're going to communicate lenient. Okay, So the first sign is heart, second one is solved. Now remember heart all by itself. You're gonna take this handshape right here and dude, to temps, a double-tap on your heart. All right. Soft all by itself. The sign for soft all by itself would be two motions like this. Okay? Now hard, soft to mean lenient, we're going to be more efficient, remember in American Sign Language. So we're just gonna do one motion of each sign. Art. Soft. Lenient. Lenient. Ok. We just talked about how to sign lenient. All right, Pause sentence, putting the pieces together. Let's do it. Here we go. A statement. Sarah, feel lenient. There we go. Yeah. Sarah, feel lenient. You noticed, which is very nice here, is that we're using this handshape for feel, right? But then immediately we go over to do lenient, right? Feel lenient. And that hand-shaped stays the same right there. Very nice. Okay, there we go. Let's few more times. Sarah, feel lenient, right? So sine with me. Here we go. Now you can add it a basal expression if you really want to show that you know, Sarah, she's just been a hard ass before her. She is so strict. And now she's just she's so linear now. Oh, it's wonderful. All right. Let's do the question our hearts. A yes, no question. So what are we going to do? That's right. We're going to put a facial expression, raise those eyebrows, lean forward a little bit. We want to indicate that we're asking a question, yes or no question. All right. Let's do it. Sarah. Feel lenient. Sarah, feel lenient. Who knows? Okay, Again, here we go. All right, and back to this statement. Okay, So on this one you can have a neutral facial expression are kinda not a little bit. You're sharing information. And the question, remember the facial expressions, eye, eyebrows up, lean forward. Okay, Fantastic. In this lesson we learned how to sign Sarah field lenient. And Sarah feel lenient. Ok, wonderful. 39. Explore | Vocab List & Test Format: These are the signs that you've learned in the last three sections. Way to go. Now I think it's time for some testing.

Wet from the other side. Wet. Okay. Now the sign for white. Okay. We have wipes. So the hand shapes I'd see going use both hands. I'm right-handed. So first with my non-dominant hand, my left hand, I'm going to make the letter a half, like in the alphabet a. I'm going to take that a and I'm going to put it down here just a little bit in front of me right here. I'm gonna take my other hand, stay flat. I'm going to take the inside part of the fingers, put it under the a right kinda at the bottom here and just wipe out. And when I finish my other hand, this one is going to be in a shape as well. So we have wipes. Wipes. Once again, non-dominant hand, a shape, put it their dominant hand fingers together, come down here and just pull out making contacts.

Now when we do wet wipes like this, it to me, it just makes me think of a baby read my daughter when she was small and you got to use wipes and do the business, clean things up, whatever wipes. Now have seen another version of wet wipes which looks like this. Wet wipes. All right, Pretty straightforward, visual and easy to understand. So we still start with wet, but this time we're going use a flat hand, turn the palm in and just pretend like we're rubbing her mouth. So a couple of circles in front of your mouth right now I'm not actually touching my face. I'll show you from the side. Wet wipes, other side. Okay. So that's an alternate version. You may see wet wipes. All right, to be consistent in this course, whenever we do testing quizzes, whatever, you'll see me signing wet wipes, the baby version like this. Okay. Quick review. Non-dominant hand. I'm right handed, non-dominant hand making a, put that down there. For the palm facing in dominant hand.

Now the MAY, the most challenging part of this majors be the fingerspell in right? Because we have five letters in a row. We got to finger spell out the name. So I can say and that is just practice. If you need to take a moment, is keep practicing, Nora. Just keep practicing, practicing until it flows. That's fine. So let's do the full sentence again. This is a statement, remember, so at the end you can kinda Niger heterogenous, have a neutral look on your face or if it's horrible, if you can put it in your face. All right. So let's sign it.

Here's what it looks like. Okay, let's jump in step by step. This sign per WE, you may already know it either way. Let's do it. Now. This is a personal pronoun. So what do we know about all personal pronouns in American Sign Language? They all have this same handshape, yes, the index finger, we're just going to be doing a lot of pointing. And we were just gonna do double tap 12 on our test. We take that index finger 12. We, if we left the index fingers, start from this side. I'm writing so I go like this. From the side. We other side. All right, Let's sign together starting from the rest position three times. Here we go. We, we, we. Okay. Wish our vocabulary word. Here is the sign for which use your dominant hand. I'm right handed, going to make the hand shape of the letters C, like in the alphabet.

You might not use those words in English, but you want something you wish for it, right? So wish little bit of a difference is you can put in a facial expression where you want something like that with an alternate version of wish that I've seen is to use the index fingers are basically they're just the our hand shapes, right? Like your fingers like this. I can't wait for it to happen. I wish command with. So you may see that you will see wish, NMAC wish to be consistent in this course. Whenever you see me signing Wish, I'm going to go like this. Now you're thinking how am I going to know who is hungry or wish? Well, the concept, the idea of what's happening in the situation. Okay, So this is wish, and it also works for desire. So many possibilities with just one sign, the facial expression, the situation, what's going on? The extra information, the environment is going to help explain it a lot. Alright, so right now we're just doing the basic sign for which is like this. Okay? C, handshape, lightly touch here, just go down, right? You might have a pace. Look at facial expression, something like this. Because you're hoping it will happen. Wish. Okay.

We wish ENSO friendly. Friendly. All right, again, sign with me and let's speed up this a little bit. And you'll notice when your fingers spelling the name ENSO, the z kind of becomes quick and many because it takes too long to do a big Zorro, z like Zorro. Remember the sword Zorro. Alright, so ENSO. Okay. Let's do this statement. Yes. So no need to raise eyebrows, lean forward. This, you know, you're sharing some information. Here we go. So maybe ends those not so friendly.

So I am going to sign it and you take a look and then we'll break it apart. Here we go. Okay, you see index finger because it's a personal pronoun, we're just going to point x0. So maybe it's Sally, It's Gertrude. It's whoever Murdoch. She's over there and we're like she she maybe she's over there. She would just point adder. She's up there. Wine wrote in a hot air balloon. She okay. You might be thinking, what if she's not here? What do we do? We just sign off to the side. We still do the point in motion. Just pretend there's an imaginary version over her over here in xi. Xi. Okay, let's go to Hope. Here's how we assign hope. Okay, we're going to use both hands. Now. I'm right-handed size my dominant hand, this is lefty, non-dominant. Okay. My left hand is going to be higher or lower. My right hand's going to be lower. The handshape Stato like this, and we're going to bend them at the end. All right, so we go Hope, hope. Okay, So hand shapes like this, kinda like rock and shooting up there and then they come down. Are they bend, right? Hope. Hope. From this I hope. Other side. From the front again. Hope. Okay, rest position. Sign with me. Let's do hope 3 times. Hope. Hope. Hope. Alright. In the movement happens at the same time. It's not like one too. It's Hope same time. So remember starting hand shapes like this, fingers together comes alongside. I'm right hand. My non-dominant hand is going to be a little bit higher, right? So exude up there and then they just bend forward so that become like Shell. So I guess one shelf is higher than the other. Hope. Hope.

Aaron. Okay, good, good. Overthink. Here's how we can sign over. Think. All right, We have a few things going on here. It's very expressive. I like this sign. Okay? So the hand shapes are going to be just think of like fluttering birds. The birds that do the nectar, the honey, crap, the ones that the wings are trying a mile a minute, I forget the name of them are either way. They're buzzing around right there, buzzing around her head because in this situation they're just thoughts like crazy. Right? So do you have fingers kinda fluttering together like this, right? The pinky is actually just kinda pointing out there. Like you're grabbing a cup of coffee and you're being very delicate, right? Leave that pinky sticking out there. But just what are the fingers and bring them down touching the top. But do it around your head. Like they're just so many thoughts coming in over. Think. You can add an a piece of the expression because usually overthink is not always a positive thing, kind of a negative thing. Too many thoughts they can't move forward are overthinking. So put on your face. Over, think over, think from the side. Overthink. From the other side. All right, from the front again. Alright, so much going on up there, right. Rest position, sign with me. Here we go. Over, think. Okay, quick review hand shapes. We have those pinky sticking out, take the other tips of the fingers and just move them to be touching against your thumb. And as you're doing it at the same time, put them by your head. Hummingbird. Aha, that's like they're little hummingbird and they're moving around your head right there buzzing around a little all these tabs and I can't focus. I'm overthinking. All right, wonderful thing about sign language. Literally paints a picture of the concept in front of you, a visual image, a visual concept of what we're trying to communicate. Right? Okay. We just talked about how to sign over, think. Oh, okay, we have the poles sentence and we're starting with the question. So puzzle pieces that put them all together. It's a question. What kinda question? It's a yes, no question, right. So we're going to raise their eyebrows. Pretenders at fence there, you can't see over until you make the yes-no question phase. All right. So sign with me. Let's go nice and slow. Here we go. Oh, Erin. Or think. Alright, so at the end, make sure your eyebrows are up, leaning forward. You can hold it at the end a little bit. I think I did that last time. So when I signed over, think I stopped at the hands but I kept the expression because maybe I really want to know again who signed with me. Here we go. And you might notice, if we're assigning, overthink just by itself, right? The facial expression, something like this. Alright. Unpleasant. We don't like it. But once we get to a yes-no question, once we sign it, yes. No question. Facial expression overrides, right? Because we need to make sure we're communicating a yes-no question. So we don't have to worry about the basal expression for overthink, right? So once again, like this. Okay, Let's do this statement. Yes, here we go. She hope. Aaron, Over think again. Here we go. Sign with me. There's plenty is over there. No. Hope Aaron over think. Alright, back to the question. Here we go. Hope Aaron over think that a whole mixture of emotions that our duty.
