South African Sign Language Lessons

Not being invited to a popular event or party does not automatically make you a social outcast, but it will leave you wondering why you weren’t invited. And asking why you weren’t invited won’t always settle any doubt. The important thing is to not retaliate immaturely.

SASL-Peer-Pressure

South African Sign Language Lessons – Peer Pressure

Peer pressure comes in many forms, from dubious reasoning and insults, through to rejection, and even unspoken peer pressure. Avoiding peer pressure begins with choosing your friends carefully, but being self-confident, and fully understanding your own values and beliefs also helps. The right friends will expose you to positive peer pressure by encouraging you to avoid harmful behaviour.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo is contacted by a young man struggling to avoid peer pressure.

Safer sex is something that any sexually active adult should always practice, regardless of whether they are in a casual or stable relationship. Safer sex helps minimise – but not eliminate – the risk of exposure to sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), along with reducing the chance of an unwanted pregnancy. But it is also something that should be discussed – and supported – by both partners early in the relationship.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo discusses safer sex with a young woman.

SASL-Concentration

South African Sign Language Lessons – Concentration

It is essential to take regular breaks whenever you are busy with a task that requires intense concentration. Not doing so will negatively affect your ability to concentrate and to actually retain any information you are being exposed to. For every hour of study, you should take a 5-6 minute break. Don’t sit relaxing during this time. Get up and move about, exercise a little. This increases blood flow, keeping you alert, and improving your ability to retain what you are studying. Yoga is particularly good, since along with exercising, you are focusing on your breathing.

In this week’s South African Sign Language lesson, Karabo advises a young woman who is battling to concentrate ahead of an exam.
