Hello! My name is Jessica, and I have been looking for a d/Deaf/ hard-of-hearing person with whom to conduct an interview for an ASL college assignment. I absolutely understand if you prefer not to participate, but it would help me very much! I am so glad to have found this place and hope to use it for further practice with ASL (I am very much a beginner haha). Thank you so much for your consideration!

The questions I will ask include as follows. I may want to ask more depending on certain answers or areas of uncertainty.

  1. Introduce the person- ( where were they born, what is their family like, where did they grow up)
  2. Explain how they became deaf. (If they were deafened as a child or born deaf.)
  3. Explain what are their biggest challenges ( education, peers, bullying, jobs, communication)
  4. What would they like other people to know about them

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
