Hi everyone!

Recommended Posts

My name is Kait and I'm 20 years old. I'm hearing, but I don't remember ever not knowing some random signs (for ex. eat, talk, more, water) and how to fingerspell. My mom (also hearing) used to be fluent in ASL and these "basics" were how we used to communicate when I had gymnastics meets. If the team needed a snack, water, or medicine I could tell her and she would do what she needed to get it for us. Little 8 year old me felt SO cool, hahaha.

I took ASL 1 and 2 in high school, where I learned more random signs and grammar. I struggle with real conversations (in class they were all scripted) and am hoping to practice more and become fluent someday. I'm finishing up my last semester of Spanish that's required for my major, so I  can focus on ASL now.

    • Hello! I am 32 and a Montessori Upper Elementary teacher of 4th-6th graders located outside Seattle, WA.  In college I majored in Sign Language interpreting for about 1.5 years before I realized it wasn't quite the right major for me. I absolutely loved holding conversations in ASL, but I really struggled balancing taking sounds in while simultaneously signing. I later was diagnosed with ADHD and learned more about my brain, and that my brain has a really hard time holding words and messages
    • I tried to connect to the event yesterday and even sent a message to the organizer and this site's administrator to find out how to do so.  I am still waiting for a response.  I was unable to access the event yesterday.  I'm guessing that it's no longer offered and should be removed from the calendar.
    • I'm a beginner signer and would like to practice with people using the Beginner Chat Room.  Would anyone like to join me?
