Learning Common ASL Words is Hard Work

Hey guys!

So last week my goal was to work on common words and I learned things such as numbers 1-10, yes and no, mom and dad, etc..

This week my goal was to continue to work on common words. Last week I used an app called MSH Dictionary and that seemed to be very useful as it breaks signs into categories and has a video and an explanation so I continued to use that this week. This week the categories I looked at were bedtime routine, colors, questions and clothing.

I looked into learning time such as the months and examples of time increments but they seemed a little complex and difficult to follow as I can not find a solid video to help me. To learn time I was looking at the app called Sign School and they have videos for the words but they go a little fast for me to learn so it is something that I will be continuing to learn into next week.

For learning the colors I had found a YouTube video that also seemed helpful. It was by ASL That and they have a lot of videos to help with sign language knowledge. They have a website that you can check out here that has lots of helpful videos and resources.

If you guys want to check out the video I used to help learn the colors you can check it out here.

Please check out my video from this week below to see my progress from this week.


For next week my initial goal was to learn some common sign language phrases but I think I’m going to continue with common words for another week.

A couple resources I wanted to share with everyone is an ASL website called Start ASl . As well I wanted to share a couple pictures with you that I thought would be good resources to have in the classroom.

  1. Hey, Rebecca, I like that you are using more than one app/YouTube video to learn sign language. It can be really beneficial for you to use different sources instead of just one. Keep up the good work!


  2. Rebecca, it is great to see you are progressing in your learning project so well. I also am quite impressed with the amount of resources you have used to help teach yourself sign language. Your post is visually appealing with all of the photos and links. Great job!
