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!

    • Hi Gina, First, congratulations on your new baby!   It sounds like you are on your way to being well prepared!   I am a retired Braille teacher and have been taking an ASL class for a few weeks.  I would be happy to practice with you sometime.  I will send you a video after I figure out how to use this system.  It may take me a few days. Post a list of the baby vocabulary/signs you have learned so that those of us who wish to contact you will have something to get us started.
