Irving

Hi to all! :D

Recommended Posts

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).

Hi Derrian, I also tried sending you a message but I couldn't.

Sorry for my delay in the reply, I didn't recieved a notification that you commented. 

I would love to chat with you sometime, hope we can fix this message thing somehow.

 

Irving.

    • So, greetings to the community here.  I posted once awhile ago about the Alcatraz tour in ASL. I have since definitely figured out why some people want the ASL tour and others just want the printed tour. But I have a new one for you guys, and this is potentially controversial. OK so I have a co-worker who is on the Autism spectrum.  He received a large group of Deaf visitors.  My co-worker enjoys asking people where they are from etc, I imagine he enthusiastically engaged with the visitors. Now here is the interesting part, the Deaf visitors did a O.? a "uh-huh knowing-eye-look" hard to explain, and then they did a beard-stroking movement accompanied with the eyebrow-raised thing.   What were they saying?  What was this beard stroking thing, they were definitely commenting on my co-workers autism.     PS:  Feel free to PM me if you want, I don't think this is too controversial but yeah.
    • I liked it. very creative.
