Hello from a student

Recommended Posts

Hello all. My name is Brandon and I am five weeks into my first ASL course at the local junior college. I ignored school for a long time, so I'm an old man at 35 attending college with a bunch of kids! Anyways, I decided to take ASL because I've always found it interesting and it fit into my schedule. I have to say it's one of my favorite classes. And, like with anything, I need to find a place to practice outside of class. So I googled around and found this site! Shortly after I purchased a web cam and now I'm excited to stumble my way through discussing with some people. I hope to see people in the chat rooms, and I hope your patience is there since I am still pretty new.

Take care!

--Brandon

Hi Brandon!

I'm Crystal, a non-traditional student in Alaska.  I am looking for someone to practice with also.  You know Alaska, more animals than people.  Animal sign language is different than ASL and you need good running shoes with them.

If you want to practice, send me a message and we can go online.

Brandon,  I didn't start college toward my career until I was 25.  I didn't start learning ASL until I was 38. Don't feel bad for starting late.

    • If you are looking to become an ASL interpreter, you will need to have a bachelors in something.  The governing board for interpreters requires that you have a bachelors in order to sit for the exam. I think that to be a teacher of the deaf you do not have to have a degree in deaf education, but you would need a teaching certificate.
    • Hi, my name is Mell. I'm currently taking an ASL 101 class at Brookdale Community College and I have a project coming up where a partner and I are going to sign a song (A Whole New World from Aladdin). I'm writing out my gloss and have some questions about certain parts. If anyone could help that would be amazing, thank you!
    • I inspected the link it is a legit url, no signs of it being an affiliate link of any sort so I personally don't believe any profiteering would come of this. I'm new here but I think this is a great idea to spread the network of ASL; Allowing more to connect with each other. Thank you in my humble oppinion, this is a fantastic ideal.
    • Hello everyone, I'm Rj I hope your all doing amazing! I'm here to genuinely relearn Sign as its been many years without Signing I've lost quite a bit of knowledge. I'll Pick up fast, I'm going to be practicing with my mother Tammy she is half deaf and also hard of hearing on her right side. I was deaf for a few years because of a bad doctor and a horrible allergic reaction to a medication called "Gantrisin" which caused tissue damage and ruptured both my eardrums. After some surgeries and tubes I eventually regained my hearing and subsequently forgot much of what I once knew. I really have a soft spot for the deaf and hard of hearing community. Our family is a military family so we moved a lot, and I've lost touch with those I used to be close with that could Sign. I really would like to become fully fluent so I will hopefully be able to help others, meet new friends, or do some translating, I just hope to help and be happy make others happy as well. Peace
