Trust me conversing in a new language is much harder than it looks. This week I wanted to test my knowledge and what I have learned. I looked at conversation videos between two people in ASL on YouTube. From there I would see how much I could make out in the conversation. Some of the videos I used had subtitles, but were still helpful in the review process.
This video was one of the first ones I used to review. They go over basic conversation signs and it helped me with the review. I learned these signs near the beginning of my semester so it was really nice to review them.
In addition to review I am working more on the basic conversation aspect of my goal. I want to be able to communicate, and as of right now I am having a lot of trouble with remembering the signs.
Review is easy to do through YouTube and through my notes, but what I am having trouble with is getting that practice in. How can I practice ASL if nobody arounds me uses it? Well, I have reached out to a fellow classmate in hopes of setting up zoom calls so we can practice. Hopefully we can both benefit from it.
