"meet" American Sign Language (ASL)
They learn from their mothers and women around them or their doctors for the more complicated stuff. However, I love researching and reading and i am very opinionated when it comes to my baby and how to handle and raise him. I was fascinated by BSL. However because of that, it limits my signing to my baby around other people and we are a very social community.

German Sign Language
I can now finally teach my daughter how to use the potty! Sarita August 7th, My son is 5months old. We speak mostly English in our home.
I want him to learn Spanish as well as sign language. When I sign to him, should I say the word in English and then in Spanish? Is he too young to start using the flash cards? I would just say the word in one language and make the accompanying sign. For example, saying agua, and making the water sign.

Two signs differing in only one element are deemed to be a minimal pair. German Sign Language uses 32 handshapes, of which six are basic handshapes found in all sign languages.
