    My name is Kait and I'm 20 years old. I'm hearing, but I don't remember ever not knowing some random signs (for ex. eat, talk, more, water) and how to fingerspell. My mom (also hearing) used to be fluent in ASL and these "basics" were how we used to communicate when I had gymnastics meets. If the team needed a snack, water, or medicine I could tell her and she would do what she needed to get it for us. Little 8 year old me felt SO cool, hahaha. I took ASL 1 and 2 in high school, where I learned more random signs and grammar. I struggle with real conversations (in class they were all scripted) and am hoping to practice more and become fluent someday. I'm finishing up my last semester of Spanish that's required for my major, so I can focus on ASL now.

    Technically you can sign either. The more ASL version would be YOUR DOCTOR WHO with eyebrows lowered for the WHO. But you could technically ask WHO YOUR DOCTOR with eyebrows lowered the entire time. But this is usually considered more English. But you will still find Deaf people that do it. It's just not as ASL as the first example.
