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!

    • 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.
