I don't want to lose my skills!

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone! I'm a former Teacher of the Deaf from SC. I moved to NC in January and took a new job as a special education teacher. I only had one student I could sign with this past year, and I really don't want to lose all the skills I had from before. I would be willing to chat with anyone. I'm no expert, but any practice is good practice! 😁

I recently retired from teaching braille.  Am taking an ASL class and enjoying it.  Just need more opportunities to practice.  Looking forward to checking out this site and finding ways to practice.  So far enjoying the fingerspelling game.  I am amazed that it is possible to read 30 words or more in such a short period of time from seeing all the names on the leaderboard!  I am at 16!  I have a long way to go!  

Unlike braille, where reading braille is far easier than writing braille, it seems with ASL it is easier to sign or finger spell to someone than it is to interpret what they are signing or fingerspelling to you.  It will be refreshing to be on the other side of the teaching/learning relationship!

    • 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.
    • That sounds like a great plan! I'll be there when I can :)
