Using ASL to Learn Korean

I first used American Sign Language when trying to remember how to say numbers 1-10 in Korean. (Bear with me on this as there are actually two different number systems in that language.) While studying one set, I began signing them in ASL and discovered that the physical movement helped me to remember the numbers more easily. When I needed to learn the other number system, I switched hands. Don’t ask me why, but it worked.

Now I’m learning words that are directional and I kept mixing them up. “Front” to “side” to “underneath” to…you get the idea. So, I went to handspeak.com and looked up the signs for those words and began practicing. Once again, connecting a word to a physical action fixed it more firmly in my mind. Added bonus: I’m getting practice in ASL.

That’s my tip of the week.
