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!

    • This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
    • Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
    • Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups.  Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)).  Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline.  It can be tricky with time zone differe
