American Sign Language: "The perfect one for me."

 

 


Dr Bill,
 
My name is Kim and I have to say I am so happy to have found your website American Sign language University. I wanted to take ASL in school but my school only offers spanish and mandrin so I didn't have that choice. But now that I found this website, I can learn it, and at my own pace which is actually a lot easier for me.
I do have a question to ask you.
 
I know how to count to 10 in ASL so I know what the #1 looks like. However, what if I wanted to sign "one "as in
 
" that boy is the perfect one for me"? would I use the same sign as the #1?
 
I am so glad I found your website. It is amazing. Thank you for reading this email, and I look foward to learning more ASL from it.
 
Kim

Kim,
Actually, in ASL you'd sign something like WE-2 MATCH! -- using a large, strong movement, and a "very satisfied, affirmative" look on your face.
It will be a while before you can start "interpreting" ASL. For now just focus on going through the lessons and getting a feel for the language.
