Fingerspelling requires a lot of practice to become fluent.
Here are ways you can practice fingerspelling:
1. License plates (hopefully not while driving)
2. Street signs
3. Looking in the mirror
4. With a friend
5. Names of T.V. programs
6. Names of friends
Remember, fingerspelling is used when expressing a proper noun, or a word you do not know. Fingerspelling an entire conversation may be too much for the receiver. When you fingerspell, make sure it is clear, and do not bounce your letters. If there are other ways you practice fingerspelling, please share them with us.
