EDTC 300, My Learning Project

A Day in the Life of Me: Sign Edition

Hi everyone! I was finally able to do a vlog again now that I am back in the world of wireless. This weeks #learningproject post is focusing on some everyday sign and common phrases that we see. I did not include everything that I have learned but just some of the basics that I could use to take you through what is a typical day for me! I clearly still need a lot of practice (I am in no way fluent or even close) but I am getting closer to my final goal which was to be able to sign a sort of introductory paragraph. I don’t know if I will get there but with sites like Sign Language 101 I am starting to get the hang of it! So feel free to watch my below video for a quick update!

Side note: I apologize for my video skills and on-camera presence. Videoing myself makes me very uncomfortable so I fidget quite a bit and don’t often look directly at the camera, which sometimes results in not being able to see my full sign (this was already video attempt #3 and if I kept going it would likely never get posted). It also did not help that I am currently under the weather. But I try my best! And what’s life if you can’t laugh at yourself a bit!

  1. Awesome video! I am also learning ASL and I find it quite tough! What do you think? I also find it hard to remember some of the signs I have learned in previous weeks! Some of the signs seem like they blend together also!

    1. I totally agree with you Hailie! I find it very difficult sometimes to distinguish between certain signs and to know if there is a difference between past/present tense. Like this week, I was trying to learn the sign for “spent” but all I could find was the sign for “spend.” It is definitely difficult to get the hang of, especially when learning through online videos and such that don’t tell you all of the grammar rules to go with it.

  2. great video, love seeing the progress. i too learned some sign back in high school with a buddy that i trained with because he was deaf. and i can understand the struggles because i remember how tricky it was. i only learned a couple phrases and words that involved our training but it was tricky and i applaud your end goal of having a paragraph in sign.
