Hello!

My name is Tiara, and I am majoring in Physical Therapy while playing basketball at my college. I found out there was an American Sign Language class offered here so I jumped at the chance to take it. Unfortunately, it is only seen as an elective, and not equivalent to a language such as French or Spanish (which I totally don't understand). Currently, I am in the second semester of the class and this is my last one so I have been trying to find places where I could meet others that want to expand and also practice what they have already learned! My schedule is kinda hectic just because of my sport but if you want to try and practice, learn, or even just talk let me know! Thanks and I hope to make new ASL buddies ^_^

    • Hi, sorry if the title didn't make any sense. I'm not Deaf or HoH, but people in my life are HoH. I was wondering if it would be considered disrespectful to Deaf culture to introduce myself with a word instead of fingerspelleing. I know name signs are very important to Deaf culture, and I don't want to overstep if it's considered rude. Example, my name is Kat. Would it be rude to introduce myself with the sign for cat?
    • Heyy! This is Rylee. I like to make new friends idc hearing or deaf important know sign language so I can meet and video chat also make friends too. 
    • I am a product of Detroit Public Schools. When I graduated, each person was supposed to do at least one year of a 'foreign language'. Not sure of a better term to be inclusive of ASL, but wouldn't it be grand if a year of ASL was offered?  In High School, at least, all the kids could have a chance to learn the Alphabet, Colors, Numbers and some simple greetings.  I have niblings (nieces and nephews) and I am sure to teach them all the IMPORTANT stuff: cookie, ice cream, bathroom, mother,
    • I am looking for deaf ASL friends in Philly, who can help me learn Sign Language better!
