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 am a beginner and want to really learn this beautiful language. I'm taking ASL 1101. Would anyone like to help?  
    • Hi my name is kori. I'm learning ASL so I'm a newbie that's eager to learn. I currently live in NM. 
    • That is on, if you choose to earn from the I internet.  I am doing the same since there aren't any deaf people besides me anywhere near me so I stick to learning the ameri an sign language since from what I see is used mostly here, I think we can make a lot of progress practicing together. I'm on the beginners level still, I'm taking free online classes too and those help a lot. Would u like to practice with me?
    • if you dont use it, you lose it right? hope i can get to the level where we can help each other through practice. i live in a different country, so ASL is used here ALTHOUGH some deaf people do study it so that can communicate on a global level. for now, i am confined to the internet to learn.
