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 Ryan, I also started to learn ASL to expland my knowlege and be able to communicate with more people. I'm a 21 year old female college student currently enrolled in a two year ASL training program, I have yet to be certified and am coming to the end of my semester soon, we should video chat, you could show me some of your BSL.  -Best, Jela
    • Hello Ryan, my name is Carleigh, and I am currently in my second ASL class at a community college. I would love to learn about some of BSL and how learning that has been for you. I am an 18-year-old female in my final semester in high school. I started taking sign this year and am hoping to either minor in it or major in it in college.  
    • Hiya everyone! I've decided to learn ASL in order to expand the access I have to the worldwide Deaf/hard-of-hearing community. I'm a 21-year-old male living in the UK and have studied BSL for the last three years while also using it in the care sector supporting deaf/blind clients. I am very aware of how the two deaf cultures differ across the Atlantic and want to form first-hand connections with anyone fluent in/learning ASL to broaden my knowledge on any topic relating the signing community in
    • Happy to hear about your learning journey, this can be a motivation for other students to continue learning for the sake of knowledge. However, as you go forward to the next semester you may face some hurdles in completing your assignment projects but don't worry you can take admission essay writing services for that.
