I'm learning because it is something to me i feel i should learn. There are so many wonderful people out there who live in a whole different kind of world that is still the same world as those like me who can speak. I honestly want to learn from their point of view. Learning a language like Spanish or French is just not something that is pulling for me to learn. ASL is just one that is :x

I am learning sign language because I wish to connect with the Deaf community and I am majoring in ASL interpreting and I want to become a good interpreter that respects cultural nuance.  I'm just starting out, I just finished ASL 1 and I am in search of deaf friends that would be willing to practice with me.

My name is Bekah and I am learning ASL because I have dyslexia which makes written languages like Spanish and French hard for me to learn like other students my age. I am currently taking ASL 2 at my high school and wish to become a better signer so when I enter the work field, I will be able to help deaf patients receive the care they need. (I want to become a nurse who works in the NICU/deliver babies.)

Thanks for reading about me!!!

    • hi! my names madi im looking for a teenager to help me learn more about ASL im not a beginner i have an intermediate level of signing and understanding ASL ive been taking it for 2 years but i want to learn more signs and experience talking to someone who knows ASL

    • Hi My name is Koriey, I have a small YouTube channel and I'm looking to add a new dimension to my channel for the new year.  I am asking for help from anyone who would be willing and able to help me interpret an 11 minute YouTube video of mine into ASL.  I think the type of videos I provide would be very beneficial to the hear impaired community, and I am willing to experiment with ASL if some one is willing to help. The ultimate goal would be for me to learn how to sign over time, but for now I just want to test the market to see if there is a demand for this type of content on YouTube. Here is a link to the very first video that I want to try this approach out on.     You just have to just send me video of you interpreting my video.  I will take your video and put it in the corner of my video and it's just that simple.  If you can be in front of solid back ground, then that would be great.  This work is strictly pro bono during this testing phase.   Thanks in advance guys.
