Inquiry 2 – ASL Update 1

I am learning ASL (American sign language) for my second and final inquiry of this school year. I am teamed up with Mackenzie and Julian. Julian is teaching and helping Mackenzie and I learn how to sign. So far I have learned finger-spelling, which is the alphabet. Finger spelling is mainly used when signing names or words that you don’t know the sign for. We started by just practicing the alphabet but Mackenzie and I have moved on to spelling words out to each other in conversation.  I also previously knew some sign language and have been using a website the past week to learn more. I am keeping a record of all the words I know off by heart and will be updating it weekly. Right now I know around 55 words plus finger-spelling.
