It is said that practice makes perfect – the more frequently you do something, the better you become at it. Learning a new language is very dependent on practice, but this can be difficult if you don’t have a learning partner – someone who is studying the language with you, or someone who already knows the language. This will help you to retain what you have learnt, while also giving you opportunities to use your new vocabulary in different settings.
This week’s South African Sign Language lesson is a revision of the vocabulary used in our most recent lessons, but why not have a fake conversation with yourself, using signs you learnt recently, before watching the lesson? It is one way of testing your knowledge, and a chance to see what signs you need to pay more attention to.
