“I’m learning Sign Language” ASL vs SEE | Viewer Q&A

I recently had someone comment on my channel that I shouldn’t use ASL in the title. Today I wanted to clear up the difference between ASL and SEE and to answer a viewer question. I had a viewer ask me how do you sign, “I’m learning sign language” In this video you will learn both!

Signing Stories – “Good Girl”

We LOVE hearing your Signing Stories, and have reached out to our own instructors to hear their favourites as well! Here is a sweet story from our instructor, Dawna, who is located in Pickering Ontario (View Website).

Thank you for sharing, Dawna!

We adopted our daughter from China and she was 12 months, 2 weeks old when we brought her home. I started signing to her immediately. All the typical signs. Milk, mumma, dadda, girl, boy, food, good, bad, etc. One night, when she was about 15 months old, after rocking her to sleep, I gently put her in her crib. Of course she woke up and started crying. She stood with her arms up wanting me to pick her up. I said, “no honey, it’s bed time. You have to go to sleep.” Signing “bed/sleep”. She signed, as she was sobbing, “good” and “girl”. (I get teary every time I tell this story.) She was letting me know that she thought I was making her lie down because I thought she wasn’t a good girl. (Either that, or she was a master manipulator at a very early age!) That was it! I picked her up and cuddled her until she fell asleep again and I’ve been wrapped around her beautiful little finger ever since.

We would love to hear your signing stories as well! Send them along to RCDirector@Mysmarthands.com for your chance to be featured!
