Hello everyone!

Recommended Posts

Hello! 

I'm Ana, I'm 20 years old and I live in North Carolina. I initially became interested in ASL when I was in high school, and fortunately, my high school offered ASL classes. I graduated 2 years ago and I have been trying to not forget ASL but is difficult when you don't have someone to practice or talk with. A year ago I met and worked with a deaf lady and I would always learn from her, I'm not longer at that job since I'm in college now. Right now my ASL level is ok, I know lots of vocabulary and but like I said I have lost practice. I'm hopping to learn and improve with the help of the community!

Hello Ana!

I am also in NC... well WNC lol, But I have been wanting to learn ASL for many years. I'm almost 32, married, and have a bunch of kids! Maybe we can work together to learn more as a team. I know a little bit, as a choir I sang in did some musical composures in sign. But as far as conversational aspects I have very little to offer. Maybe I can learn from you! I had a late cousin who majored in ASL that I loved very much, she also worked with the disabled. I'd like to honor her with something she loved.

    • 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!
