HI! My name's Miranda. My Girlfriend and I just started ASL class together. When I was younger, my mom's boyfriend's son was deaf, so I learned a little. She took a semester in college. But both of those things were a little while ago, and now we kind of want to learn again and we have the time to do it together. I am learning because I really enjoy language learning (I used to be functional in German, and I have been studying Mandarin, Swahili and Swedish on and off for a few years), and because I don't see a reason not to learn ASL. Never know when I might need it, and writing gets tedious. Like, I should know how to sign. IDK. Anyway, we've only had a few classes so far, but I figure forums and YouTube and stuff will definitely help me stay on track. Other than that, I am a queer gamer girl, writer and all around nerd. So that's me!

    • Hey all! I took ASL for four years in high school. I got to be good friends with my teacher, who is deaf, and that gave me lots more opportunity to use ASL. Since I've gone off to college a couple years ago, we chat less and less as we get busier and I feel some frustration at having lost/forgotten some signs. I want to keep up my skills. I started an ASL club at my college with a peer who has Usher's syndrome and is part of the Deaf/blind community, but as we are teaching beginners, I'm still looking for people to sign with. I would really love to video chat. I miss this language a ton. Nice to meet you all!

    • Good evening my name is Alisha Daniels and live in the Spring Hill, Florida area. I’m a flight attendant and recently have been getting more and more hearing impaired passengers. The reason why I wanted to learn was because I felt it was so disrespectful to keep asking if they could read lips! I decided to start teaching myself then stumbled upon a class in my area. 
      I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I had to get my feet wet and learn! I’m nowhere near perfect, but I can at least hold a conversation AND “sign” to passengers. Whether if it’s something to eat or drink, or “signing” the safety demonstration. 
      I’m a firm believer of “if you don’t use it, you lose it” I’m hoping to find someone to practice with along this journey of mine!
