Hi! I'm Capt Lou. Before you ask I'm not the wrestler. I took the name Capt Lou cuz its the name of the feral cat I feed. :)

I am currently teaching myself american sign language becuz I learn the basic alphabet a long time ago in school. Today I am inspired to relearn relearn ASL becuz line my favorite shows, The Walking Dead. I can actually hear and I know no deaf/hearing impaired people. But something about the characters on the show moved me to learn and educate myself. 

well here's to the road and the journey of learning a second language.

Welcome Capt. Lou! In my opinion, any reason to learn ASL is a good one!  You don't need to interact with deaf if you want to learn a second language (though I do recommend it).  ASL is useful for hearing people too!

Good luck on your journey, stick with it!

    • Hey, that sounds like fun, honestly! I still kinda have no clue where to start😅
    • Hello! I'm Mikyla. I've wanted to learn sign language for the longest time but, as the title suggests, I'm quite lost. I've considered trying to get in touch with the signing community in my area, however I'm not necessarily aquainted with anyone. To be honest, I'd really like to practice with someone or just have someone teach me about the community and such. I'd really love to learn more.
    • Hello! I'm a pure beginner too and have no where to start, but it'd be fun to learn more with you :)
    • I genuinely have no clue what I'm doing but like, intro ig? Learning ASL has been a goal of mine for a while because my mental health disorders cause me to go nonverbal sometimes, and its generally when I need to ask someone for help. I'm a complete beginner and I've been struggling to learn, so I'm giving this a try. I know the ASL alphabet, however not perfectly, and a few things like mother, father, boy, girl, and like..thats it. I'm really trying, but kinda falling short.
