Why I'm learning ASL?

The reason I'm learning ASL is because I'm an advocate for communication. My major is Communication Disorders and Deaf Education.  I work with children who are nonverbal and I teach baby sign to little ones. I want to learn more because it is important for everyone to have a voice whether or not they can be physically heard. I also joined an ASL group at my church but it's a mix of ASL and FSL (Filipino Sign Language) so some words might be different when I sign. I also met a girl from my church who lost her hearing and she inspired me to learn sign language.  If anyone's willing to practice with me, I only took ASL 1 and that was about 2 years ago so I'm not very fluent so perhaps we can help each other. Shoot me a message on here! :)

    • Hi Morris! you seem pretty awesome  What level ASL are you?
    • Hi, I started learning ASL about a year ago from videos and a book. I am 67 years old, retired and wanted to learn a second language. Unfortunately, no one else in my life is interested and I don't have anyone to sign with.  Best regards, Morris
    • I'm Simon from the UK. I am interested in finding out about resources for learning asl in the uk. For students travelling to the states. I have found a few things online but was hoping I could join this forum to help and to learn more about asl. Thanks
    • Hi I am Brittany. I have auditory processing issue and selective mutism. I have been learning asl off and on for most of my life. It is a special interest of mine but it is difficult when I dont have anyone to sign with.
