Hello all!

Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :')

As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past.

I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie!

Please to mee you.

Jo.

    • Hello have you use this app before
    • I was looking up the signs for DAWN and SUNRISE on handspeak.com, and discovered that they appear to be the same. I have two questions:   1) Am I just missing a subtle difference in the signing between those two, or are they really the same? 2) The difference between dawn and sunrise in my every day life is more than academic: I have certain things I have to do between dawn and sunrise. If I want to talk about that part of my my life in ASL, how might I differentiate between the signs for DAWN and SUNRISE?
    • Hi everybody!   My name is Ali. I'm just finishing up Dr. Bill Vicars' ASL 1 portion of his Lifeprint course, and I'm interested in meeting more people who speak ASL (ideally, so I can ask questions and find patient conversation partners). Nice to meet you all!
