American Sign Language is an amazing and expressive language- but if you don’t “show it” your signing will fall flat!
Let’s take the sign for HAPPY, for example. If you don’t sign it with a smile then you may convey a sarcastic tone. Try it like Mindy!
Your facial expressions don’t just provide context, they also give your signing a little extra personality. You can even add emphasis by exaggerating your expressions! It’s so important to be yourself, so start by showing for everyone to see!
