Tell Me – Without Words

Tell Me – Without Words

Imagine you want to tell me you love me, but I am not able to hear your words. How might you communicate that idea to me? (Awww – thank you. That worked.) Many people are never able to hear (or even speak), but they are able to talk with friends and family using a special language – ASL.

  • What did you notice? What sign did the man use for “America?”
  • Do you know anyone who has trouble hearing?
  • Let’s learn a few basic signs – and see if we can use only sign language for one dinner each week.
