Hello,I'm high school student in Japan.

The club which I join is learning about ASL.

So I want to ask you a question.

Red, Blue and Green, why do those make such move?

Please tell me.

David on January 23, 2019:

I had a different sign for green... the ASL for "g"....your hand is across your right chest with the finger pointed towards your left... and you move the hand in one motion to in front of you as if pointing... it was even in a book... which is correct....which is more often used....
