Friend

To make the sign for friend, hold out both of your index fingers hooked in a curved or 'C'-like shape. Holding one hand with your hook index facing up, hook the second index into the first. Then reverse the position for the hands and do it again. It is like your fingers are best friends and giving each other a hug.

This is one of the most important signs and is quite helpful in pointing our babies toward being able to communicate emotional connections. If your baby attends play groups, teach him or her the word for friend early on.

      Hi Angeleina,

      It’s sweet that you want to be able to communicate with your hearing-impaired friend. Please browse through all our Dictionary pages to learn more than a thousand words at your own pace and convenience. However, if you’d like a more structured approach to learning ASL, it’s easy to Google online sign language schools, blogs, or videos. Cheers!

    Hi. My name is Leslie Briggs. I teach 2nd grade in Preston, ID. I would like to help improve the culture of my school (& perhaps, by extension, other schools) by asking the teachers to teach their students 9 signs and encourage them to use the signs with others. The 9 signs are “hello, friend, please, you’re welcome, thank you, excuse me, I’m sorry, hurt, & help”. I like the images you have created and I am seeking permission to use your images on my handout. I do not know what the protocol is for making such a request. Please let me know. I look forward to hearing back from you.

    Thank you so much,
    Leslie P. Briggs
