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!!!

    • So, greetings to the community here.  I posted once awhile ago about the Alcatraz tour in ASL. I have since definitely figured out why some people want the ASL tour and others just want the printed tour. But I have a new one for you guys, and this is potentially controversial. OK so I have a co-worker who is on the Autism spectrum.  He received a large group of Deaf visitors.  My co-worker enjoys asking people where they are from etc, I imagine he enthusiastically engaged with the visitors. Now here is the interesting part, the Deaf visitors did a O.? a "uh-huh knowing-eye-look" hard to explain, and then they did a beard-stroking movement accompanied with the eyebrow-raised thing.   What were they saying?  What was this beard stroking thing, they were definitely commenting on my co-workers autism.     PS:  Feel free to PM me if you want, I don't think this is too controversial but yeah.
    • I liked it. very creative.
    • Hello. My name is Melissa and recently lost my hearing completely in my right ear and my left is partial. So I am trying to get as much practice in as possible. If anyone would like to chat, practice, whatever..... I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
