Sign language is popular! Why? Because, this past year, Deaf actor, dancer and model – Nyle DiMarco not only took top honors as America’s Next Top Model, but also won with partner, Peta Murgatroyd, Dancing with the Stars ! An amazing feat!
It was exciting to see how Nyle seamlessly weaved his world of ASL with dance. Moreover, his enthusiasm for sign language has had a serious trickle down effect – as many hearing people now are motivated to learn this beautiful visual language.
If you are a person who would love to learn the basics of sign language, but don’t know where to start – let me help! I put together a series of videos now available on my YouTube channel and just added my 5 TIPS to LEARNING SIGN LANGUAGE (also posted below).
Shamelessly, I will add here that you will find resources, free videos and downloadable sign language images on my website – SIGNING FAMILIES.
Before I end this blog with the 5 Tips for Learning Sign Language videos, I want to publicly thank Nyle for all he does to promote ASL in our communities and for advocating for Deaf children and bilingualism. BRAVO!
