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!

    • You can learn a lot by watching ASL speakers talk to each other. Pick a video and then try to imitate what they are saying and how they are saying it. It is important that there is more than one person in the video so you can see how they react and respond with turn taking. Please post a video that you would like to discuss, and then ask questions about everything. Eventually you will undersrand enough to not need to ask a lot of questions in future videos. Here is an example to the knid of video to study. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hRRw15weblc
    • I am new at learning ASL so I could use the practice 
    • Thanks Lysandor your reply it's very helpful! 
    • Hey everyone, I'm HoH and am a proficient signer. I learned ASL through a community program as well as in college a few years ago. However, over the years my signing skills diminished since there aren't many signers in my family/friend circles or my local community. I hope I can make some friends here and eventually improve my signing skills to where they used to be, and hopefully better. ☺️ - Ryss
