How to show price, class or passing time in sign language? Joanna Huczynska explains. "We teach to sign! #26". NOTE: To take full advantage of the lesson, turn on the video above.

Hi! How is today’s topic? These will be the numbers – respectively divided by topic. Who is this lesson for? For people who already know sign language sign language at various levels. But sometimes we make mistakes or we are not sure about something, we forget things or sometimes we just don’t know, because, for example, something new is coming up. That’s why I want to show you in this video, how to separate the different signs in Polish Sign Language, and what to avoid. There will also be various examples. You may find that you get to know a new sign, that you didn’t know before. This topic will have two parts. The first part is ahead.

Numbers from zero to a trillion

I will show you how they can be shown in Polish Sign Language – maybe it will be a discovery for you. For example: 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 (on an open hand), 11, 12, 13, 14, 15 (on closed), 16, 17, 18, 19 (on the open) only on the open. But 11-15 we can show on open or closed.

How do we show 100? I have 3 possibilities: 100, 100, 100. Any of these three possibilities is good. 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900. You can also arrange your hand the other way around: 200, 300, 400, 500, 600, 700, 800, 900. We can have the hand in this way or that way, both ways are good.

Overall THOUSAND in sign language show like this: How do we show one thousand? It can be done in 4 ways: 1000, 1000, 1000, 1000. Further numbers in what way? 2000, 3000, 4000, 5000, 6000, 7000, 8000, 9000, 10000 Or 10000 (10 + thousands). If larger numbers, then: 11000, 12000, 13000, 14000, 15000, 16000. You can also show 10,000 on two hands — 1 thousand, either with one or two hands. 100 thousand (with one hand), 100,000 (with two hands), we have 2 possibilities, both are correct.

Now I will show a MILLION, overall: one million (one hand) Or a million (with two hands). And how do we show 1 MILLION? 1 million, 2 million, 3 million, 4 million, 5 million, 6 million, 7 million, 8 million, 9 million, 10 million (one hand), 10 million (with two hands). Continuing in the same way.

How do we show in sign language the BILLION? A billion (with two hands), A billion (with one hand), we have two ways. How do we show 1 billion? 1 billion (with one hand), 1 billion (with two hands), further numbers: 3 billion, 5 billion, 10 billion, show in the same way. BILLION in sign language is this way. Billion (with one hand) or Billion (with two hands). Also as it was in billion, we add the numbers, and then we add a trillion, In short, one trillion, 5 trillion (two hands), 15 trillion (two hands), and so on.

Prices with Polish Sign Language

Now the prices. I’ll show how to show the zloty. We have 3 possibilities. Zloty. Zloty. Zloty – this sign is hardly used used, but it is there somewhere. How do you recognize the zlotys? 1 Zloty, 2 zloty, 3 zloty, 4 zloty, 5 zlotys, 6 zlotys, 7 zlotys, 8 zlotys, 9 zlotys, 10 zlotys, 11 zl, 12 zl, 13 zl, 14 zl, 15 zl, 16 zl, 17 zlotys, 18 zlotys, 19 zl, 20 zlotys, But if we want to show 21, 23, 25 zlotys, how do we do it? Is that the way the way I did it No! Oh yes – 25 zlotys, 23 zlotys. There is no 23 zloty (like this), 20 simply like this. If there is a zero at the end, For example, “3 0”, “4 0”, then how do we show it? Exactly like this 30 zlotys, 40 PLN, 50 zloty, 60 zloty, 70 zloty, 80 zloty, 90 PLN. But please remember: 60, 70, 80, 90 zloty we sign yes (hand goes down). Not like this (hand goes up), 60, 70, 80, 90 zloty please remember that.

One hundred zlotys. If we want to show 120, in what way? In such a way – no! 120 PLN. That is, from this point and continues as normal: 100 PLN, 120 zloty, 400 zloty, etc. If, for example, 350,000 zlotys, then 350 or 300 – this way or that way way, both are good.

Time in sign language – hours, days, weeks, months

Now it’s time to tell, what the sign looks like in sign language, If we talk about, for example, how long we’ve been somewhere. We’ll show it like this: I stayed there for an hour, two hours, eight hours. If 10 or 20, then how do we show? Ten hours, Not 10 hours, 20 hours — let’s not show in this way. 10 hours, 20 hours. If more and longer, how? I stayed there for one day, two days, three days, four days, five days, six days, seven days, eight days, nine days, ten days as we show? Ten days. One week, Week, two weeks, 9 weeks, month, three months, five months — how many months we were there.

“Class” in sign language

Now I will show you in sign language the classes from the school. Kindergarten, First, second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, seventh, eighth. Can also be shown like this: sixth, seventh, eighth. In this way: fifth, fourth – let’s not show, Only the sixth, seventh, eighth Or sixth, seventh, eighth.

If we continue education, how to show the senior classes? First, Second, third, fourth, fifth, For example, technical school, high school, vocational school. That’s when: first, second, third, fourth, fifth, this way.


Now I have a task for you: Make a creative video (make a vlog), With nice and cool context. With what characters? There will be 3 characters: the first one – 90 zl, in one sentence, second – 4 months, next sentence, third – 3rd class. In one sentence.
