New member, knowledge of some ASL

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

I'm a new member. I've checked out this place, and it's awesome! I tried to upload a picture but, there to big lol. I'll keep trying. Anyway, I know some ASL. Pretty vague huh, my apologies. Long story short, there was a accident I lost me long term memory, and my short term is iffy. There is a but in there I promise lol. I use to know ASL. For some reason I am connecting with signing. I mean I understand it for the most part. I want to continue at it. I'm hard of hearing and I have Minerese Disease. I'm open to making some friends and chatting. Please know I'm a very patient person, hope you are. 

Thanks for reading and hope to get some replies. 

EM

😊

Hello Mindfullness, welcome to the forum.

I am new as well, and from what I’ve seen this is a fantastic place to ask questions and train on fingerspelling; however, it seems to me that there is not to none fluent ASL signers. Most of the members seems to be beginners. There’s is a lot of ressources to help people to learn better, but I doubt that there is any deaf or HH member with advanced knowledge ready to chat with everyone lol. 

I know enough to understand basic conversations and you?

    • Hey friends! Happy Deaf Awareness Month. My name is Adison. I am hearing. I am 24 years old. I am from California. I live in Washington DC now. I'm hoping to move soon but that's a different story. I work as a flight attendant. I love my job and it is a ton of fun! I learned ASL in college. From the first class, I just fell in love. The language is just beautiful, the culture is amazing, and I wanted to just learn it all. I got pretty good and was easily holding conversations. But I graduated and stopped signing. I stopped taking ASL courses and practicing. Naturally, I lost my knowledge of the language. Fast forward three years to now. I've decided to relearn the language. I have been using the internet, watching Youtube and Instagram. With my job, I travel a lot and am usually gone for 20 days every month making it hard to take an actual class. But I have found some great people and now I found this website. I want to meet you all and practice and just chat. Thank you for watching and I'm excited to meet you!

      Side note, not signed. I have retained a fair amount of vocab but a lot of the grammar has escaped me. If you have any corrections I would greatly appreciate them!
