Every time I write good afternoon, good evening and good night I think of Jim Carrey’s line in the movie “The Truman Show” when he says, “and in case I don’t see you, good afternoon, good evening and good night”

So anyways, I know I know in the videos I cut off half my head but that’s ok because as long as you can see my hands that’s all that really matters for these signs. Although for the afternoon sign you can’t really see the top of my hand so basically it’s just a flat open palm facing to the left if you are a righty. It’s the same handshape you use for good and morning.

You want to be careful when signing morning. You don’t want to bring your hand all the way up because then you are signing all morning. In the videos I get pretty close to signing “all morning” so just be careful with that. Instead you want your hand ending up straight out in front of you and not pointing up.

I hope you enjoy learning how to sign “Good Morning” “Good Afternoon” “Good Evening” and “Goodnight”
