We teach to sign! #27 Motorization

How to show "car", "tire", "highway" or "TIR" in sign language? Welcome to the 27th episode of "We teach to sign!", whose topic is " Motorization".

Watch the video to get the full benefit of the lesson.

While he pauses to sign, you in the meantime try to repeat what I’ve signed.

Car in sign language and other automotive signs

  • “Car”
  • “Wheel”
  • “Tire”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

What brand is your car? What is the width of the tire on your car? The first, the logo of a popular car manufacturer – we are talking about BMW. What does the name BMW itself mean?

  • “Rim”
  • “Paint”
  • “Luggage compartment”.

Now I will use these characters in a sentence:

What dimension is the rim? What color is the paint? What do you put in the trunk? The trunk, 500 liters – I think that’s enough.

  • “Engine.”
  • “Car hood.”
  • “Glass”, “glass”.

Now I will use these characters in a sentence:

This engine has 300 horses. You have a nice hood, I like it! Is the windshield tinted? (…) technical examination data, including defects, technical data such as engine capacity and power, fuel type.

  • “Window.”
  • “Manual transmission.”
  • “Automatic transmission.”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

Open the window, because it’s hot! How many gears does this transmission have? The automatic transmission is really convenient!

  • “Cruise control.”
  • “Seat belts.”
  • “Seat.”

Now I will use these characters in a sentence:

Traveling with cruise control on is really comfortable. Seat belts are very important! This car has very comfortable seats.

  • “Light”
  • “Road”, “street”
  • “Highway”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

These lights shine very strongly. The road is very winding. You travel faster on the highway. Further it takes an even bigger unit: light. Light breaks speed records, nothing else reaches the speed of light.

  • “Police.”
  • “Buspas.”
  • “Bus.”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

That’s where the police stand. The busway is only for buses. Buses come in a variety of colors. What is CPR? It stands for the Emergency Notification Center. It is a one-stop shop for 112, working with doctors, police, firefighters and other services. Being in the system, upon receiving a call, the CPR decides which service to send to the scene – ambulance, fire department or police. They decide the order of steps to be taken. I took a trip to Thailand. Once I got there, I couldn’t find a bus stop.

  • “Tram”
  • “Subway”
  • “Train”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

There are new streetcars in Warsaw. Train travel is convenient. By metro you can get to your destination much faster – great!

  • “TIR”
  • “Race.”
  • “Formula 1.”

Now I will use these signs in a sentence:

My dad is a truck driver. I recently won a race! I love watching Formula 1.

There were a lot of new signs today.
