SEMESTER: The American Sign Language (ASL) sign for "semester"

The sign for "SEMESTER" has two variations. One version is two handed while the other version uses only one hand.


To sign "SEMESTER" the dominant hand is "S" handshape in front of the body. The dominant hand moves to the right (if you are right handed) and then down.

The two hand version incorporates the non-dominant hand in an open "B" handshape facing the dominant hand. The non-dominant hand doesn't move.


SEMESTER (2 hand version):


SEMESTER (1 hand version):

Sample sentence: Why do I become sick often during the semester?
