learn to sign

Posted by hema on September 1, 2008

sign labs is the latest venture of my favourite blogger iMuslim , so thought i would do some plugging for her:) and also because it is a fantastic inititiave to increase communication with deaf members of our own community, as well as the deaf community as a whole. i first became interested in learning last year when i met my first ever hearing impaired student and realised i was ignorant of even the basic etiquettes of communication (the importance of lip reading, facial expressions etc)

i had the privilege to attend the first ever online class by sign labs yesterday, and it was lots of fun!

here are the promotional videos released by sign labs.

(i can do the finger spelling now! i keep forgetting the numbers though. i think it’s because i am so bad at maths)

ramadan mubarak to all!

the following guide from the NHS might be useful for anyone finding the longer months difficult!
