Newbie here.

Just popping in to say hi. 

My name is Darla I'm from Michigan but originally from Ohio.  Married almost 25 years and mom of twin boys who will be 22 in a few months. 

Im currently 48 and have been hard of hearing all my life but have never learned ASL.  Now thanks to the internet and increased ASL information and tutorials available online I just started to learn. 

I've always wanted to learn but never did as life got the in the way or I felt insecure (never liked to try new things or something out of the norm as afraid someone would make fun of me - which stems from being made fun of by other kids when growing up). But I just figure there is always a reason we never know of and it just feels that now is the right time.  So I'm learning 👍🏻

I found this forum and am hoping that when I have questions someone can help me out.  

Right now I know some words and can finger spell. It's slow but it's progress after only 4 days.  My current question bugging me is if in the middle of signing I realize I goofed up used incorrect sign what do I do to basically say I made that in error or I goofed up?  In speech you just correct yourself, on TTY or relay you type *** so what do I do when signing? 

Thanks..

    • A little bit about me is i’m a 17 year old hearing girl who IS IN LOVE WITH ASL and want to do everything in my power to learn it. I’m taking a course in college to learn ASL but would love to make some new friends so I could practice my new skills! I’d love to share knowledge about ASL but am also looking to make some new friends in general who can talk about ASL and anything else! I’ve JUST started learning so I only know basic signs like my name and how are you. I’m trying to learn more from others and practice with others !!
    • Hello! I'm actually deaf and I was wondering what skill level you are at as of right now. I may be young but I am an intermediate HOH signer who can read lips... I am willing to help you learn some basic ASL as well. 
    • Hello! I am HOH and live a deaf life except for school, I don't really want hearing aids and I am an intermediate signer who is willing to take on some beginners and work with them!!
