Jason Pettus

Greetings from Chicago

Recommended Posts

Hi! My name is Jason. I live in Chicago (spelling/city-sign). I'm hard of hearing, and I wear a hearing aid. My hearing is getting worse and worse, year after year. I can see the writing on the wall, so I thought now would be a good time to learn ASL. For two weeks I've been self-studying online, at Lifeprint.com, but next month I begin a class at Columbia College, here in the city. Right now I'm practicing at home all by myself -- so sad! -- so thank you, THANK you, for your help and friendship.

Hi, Jason! My name is Joy and I would love a pal to practice with!  I live in the great city of Austin, Texas and work as a teacher. I need to seriously improve my signing for my work. Although ideally, we would also have someone from the Deaf community with us, I am certain that there would be great value in the 2 of us signing together, novices we may be. Now I am going to attempt to record something like this in a video for you. Hope to hear from you soon...

Ok, guess who! So i went to record this (and I recorded a video the other day on this computer, so I know it works), and it told me that my camera and microphone were blocked and that I need to unblock them. But i cannot figure out how! Can you help?

    • i would like to practice asl with somebody, thank you  
    • Hey friends! Happy Deaf Awareness Month. My name is Adison. I am hearing. I am 24 years old. I am from California. I live in Washington DC now. I'm hoping to move soon but that's a different story. I work as a flight attendant. I love my job and it is a ton of fun! I learned ASL in college. From the first class, I just fell in love. The language is just beautiful, the culture is amazing, and I wanted to just learn it all. I got pretty good and was easily holding conversations. But I graduated and stopped signing. I stopped taking ASL courses and practicing. Naturally, I lost my knowledge of the language. Fast forward three years to now. I've decided to relearn the language. I have been using the internet, watching Youtube and Instagram. With my job, I travel a lot and am usually gone for 20 days every month making it hard to take an actual class. But I have found some great people and now I found this website. I want to meet you all and practice and just chat. Thank you for watching and I'm excited to meet you!

      Side note, not signed. I have retained a fair amount of vocab but a lot of the grammar has escaped me. If you have any corrections I would greatly appreciate them!
