Brand new to ASL


Recommended Posts

Hi all.

I’m 44 years old.  Just wanting to learn ASL. Gonna take an actual class in January. Been learning some online (Youtube) so I know the alphabet and some basic beginning signs/greetings, but looking forward to learning more.

Married for 22 years, 3 children aged from 15-20..  2 dogs, 7 saltwater fish.  Like aviation, sports, fast cars (I drive a Tesla Model 3) (mid-life crisis car, I suppose).

By the way, my profile pic was after quarantining for a while with no haircut, no shaving.

Cheers!

Hi!

I'm Ronnie, I'm from the UK. I use ASL as a gateway for expressive art but still class myself as a learner. I'm selective mute and I find ASL helps bridge the gap between hearing people and my voice. (Which just doesn't seem to work! Haha) I can understand BSL and ASL but prefer communicating in ASL.

    • Hello! My name is Reny, and I am searching for opportunities to practice ASL. I am hearing, and I am learning ASL as an independent study for school. I want to learn this language right, which is hard to do without another pair of eyes, so that is why I'm here. I am a novice in ASL, but I do already know some syntax, a handful of signs, and my alphabet, even if I do stumble a bit. I am looking forward to getting to know this community, and I am hoping I can be of assistance to others, as they are to 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
