Hello, Community!

I'm excited to be on board in this space and looking forward to what I hope will be lots of growing and learning to enhance my ability to communicate with Deaf community.

I'm a 39yo, Queer, Latinx based mostly out of Las Vegas but travel all across the country a lot for work. I recently met someone that I very much want to develop a relationship with and is Deaf. I will have a chance to be with her again at the end of August and am hopeful to be able to carry on at least a 30 minute, enjoyable (to her) visit with her and without an interpreter by then.

Thank yall very much for this practice space.

In Solidarity,

-Veronica

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
