Learning with family and friends increases fluency
Practicing with friends and family will help develop your skills. Sign It curriculum models complete ASL conversations and gives you lots of opportunities to practice with your family and friends. The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill recommends Shadow Conversations with a partner as a way to grow your second language skills.
“Basically, this means repeating a conversation word-for-word, even when you don’t know what all of the words mean. This helps you get used to the rhythm and patterns of the language, as well as learn to identify individual words and phrases from longer chunks of spoken language. Another great strategy involves holding practice conversations, where you create imaginary conversations and rehearse them multiple times.”
If you have several kids who want to take Sign It!, or if you are part of a homeschool co-op, one of the new features you may love is our new small group license.
