Hello. My name is Julian an I am currently taking ASL courses at my local community college. My brother lost his hearing about 9 years ago and is Deaf now. I am learning ASL to better communicate with him and I am also excited to be able to use ASL at work.  

I am finishing up with ASL 2 this semester and look forward to ASL 3. I signed up for this forum in hopes of bettering my ASL skills and practicing a bit more. 

I look forward to meeting some great new people. Feel free to hit me up if you’d like to practice or chat.

Hi Julian! My name is Leah, and I'm currently learning ASL as well. I'm not very advanced, more of a beginner really, but if you'd ever like to try video chatting let me know! I probably couldn't help you very much but I could definitely try! If you're interested please let me know!

Happy signing!

    • Hi all, I tried to learn a ASL years ago, but didn't get very far, as learning resources were harder to come by. I have always wanted to pursue it again. Recently, after seeing a few videos and movies that renewed my excitement, I enrolled in an online course. However, the most effective way to learn a language is to put it to use. So here I am. I hope to be able to practice with like-minded individuals. 
    • Hello! My name is Heather and I am interested in ASl because of my Deaf/hard of hearing family. My husband and two of our four children are D/HH. My husband has a moderate to severe hearing loss, our oldest son, 24-years-old has a mild to moderate hearing loss and our youngest son, 9-years-old has a moderate to severe hearing loss and speech issues. Their hearing loss is a congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. My husband and oldest son have lost more of their residual hearing fairly slowly over time but our youngest has lost his at a faster rate and he relies on sign to communicate because of his hearing loss and speech. He has an educational interpreter in school who is amazing! He has picked up on sign quickly but we have struggled to learn. With our youngest identifying with the amazing Deaf community, the fact that he is losing his residual hearing quickly and his hearing aids are not effective, and the need to communicate with him in sign daily I feel anxious to learn and become fluent. I have loved the Deaf community members that we have met and really want to be able to communicate with others. I look forward to learning and communicating on here!
