High Frequency Words

The fastest path to fluency is becoming familiar with the high frequency words in the target language that you are learning. For instance, Chris Lonsdale in his TED talk “How to learn any language in six months”, he mentions that in most languages you can attain approximately 85% fluency with as little as 1,000 high frequency words and up to 98% fluency with only 3,000 words. So, in our next workshop we are going to be going over several ASL high frequency words that will help you increase your overall comprehension and improve your ability to communicate with others in sign language directly. Additionally, we will also be covering multiple meanings of the most common English high frequency words and the corresponding signs for each meaning in ASL.
