Introduction

Recommended Posts

Hi! My name is Aaron Jacob (but most people call me A.J.) and I am a beginner ASL signer. I have been taking classes for about three months now and am looking forward to learning more. I’m here to get some practice signing and further indulge myself in the deaf community. Thank you for welcoming me to your language :)

Good job AJ.  Work on your facial expressions too.  Your signs are really nice and clear and crisp.  But without the facial expressions you're doing the ASL equivalent of talking monotone.  Give them a little life.

    • I kind of agree with Lysandor. The grammar of the sentence about the guitar is different in ASL, but what would be the purpose of writing it as he signs it. He means he is plays the guitar, so write the sentence as "I play the guitar". It does show your ignorance to think that by writing it in ASL gloss show the language. It doesn't. I have a feeling Lysandor is Deaf or is very involved in the deaf community because he gave the perfect answer. Deaf people don't even consider themselves disabled so again, your ignorance shows. If you do still write a book after you find someone who won't be fully honest with you, I think it will flop. It certainly wont attract the Deaf community and those who know and love them. If you want to write in ASL, (which is ridiculous, because it isn't a written language), go to school and learn it like the rest of us did, and you will have a completely different perspective. Best of luck to you. and if you are still bent on using two "disabled" characters, pick a real disability. Deafness is not a disability.

    • Hello! Earlier today I posted a clip of me signing Closer by the Chainsmokers in ASL. I would love to hear any feedback (good or bad) as far as the accuracy and correct grammar or words I used when translating it. Thanks! https://www.instagram.com/p/BjIspOXF0uJ/?hl=en
