Hi, learning ASL to help others


Recommended Posts

Hi,

I'm learning ASL and just started.  I have a long way to go before I'm good at signing. But, I wanted to help those who need help in the medical setting. My mother is hard of hearing so I thought I teach her sign language also.  I would like to one day be an ASL interpreter. But, as I said, I have a long way to go.  I was teaching English in Tokyo while learning Japanese.  I am fascinated by languages in general.  I became interested in ASL since I met some people who were hard of hearing in Tokyo and were using their phone to see what I was saying but still had some problems understanding me. So, I thought out of curiosity I would learn ASL and think it is a fun language- visual and expressive.  I just started learning the alphabet and numbers.  So, I will keep on learning by myself until I can take classes in person at my community college.  I just wanted to say hello to the community here. I also wanted to thank those here for helping others learn ASL as well. Have a wonderful day!
