Hi! My name is Irving and I recently started learning American Sign Language. I'm finishing the beginners course.

I'm a hearing person and would love to make friends who can introduce me into the deaf community. My goals in life is to become an interpreter.

Currently I'm working as a teacher. I had a student who was deaf. He inspired me to learn, and since I've been taking the classes I'm in love with the language.

If anyone wishes to chat, feel free to write to me.

Hey there, Irving! 
It's great to meet you. I was born hard of hearing, but only recently learned of the Deaf community and ASL. I would love to chat with you some time, so please feel free to send me a message (I would do so myself, but the website says I exceeded my number).

    • Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :') As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past. I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie! Please to mee you. Jo.
