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 Doc. I'm decided to learn ASL after my mom passed away from Alzheimer's, as did all of her siblings. While taking care of her I found research that indicated doing those things that actually "re-wire the brain" have shown to diminish the likelihood of getting Alzheimer's; learning a new language is one of those activities that actually does rewire the brain. I'm just beginning my third semester learning ASL, and like you, am working to become fluent. Would like to know if you'd be interested in practicing together; I'm on Skype, Facetime, and can easily download Glide if you'd prefer.   Take care, welcome, and hope to hear from you soon. Sincerely, Beto
    • Hi Kelly,  my niece did the same. Woke up deaf.  I have a brother that lost all hearing while on active duty, and I've lost 70% in the left ear and about 30% in the right. But, since I used to work with the Regional School for the Deaf, I remember some sign. Now, I want to become fluent in ASL. It's not a necessity, but I'm in an area where about 10% of our population is Deaf.  I appreciate your story and can understand. Personally, I do not prefer the sounds of the outside world. 
    • so, I just learned something... I have to sign in FRONT of the camera.  It's been years! Forgive me. I want to become fluent in ASL.
