I have a few questions for deaf people, I am doing a project pls be honest if you are deaf or not. I tried to make sure these questions would not be offensive to anyone in the deaf community.

Please answer the following

1: Do you feel because you are deaf you have less of a voice in your community?

 

2: Can you lip read and speak?

 

3: Do you feel hearing people should learn ASL because you have been forced to adapt to a hearing society and you can speak to us so why shouldn't we be able to speak to you.

 

4: Is it hard having hearing parrents, what's the hardest part?

 

6: What is your favorite type of entertainment?

 

7: Do you watch Netflix? What is it like for you? How do you watch it? With subtitles?

 

8: How do you experience music, what does it mean to you? What's your favorite artist?

 

 10: Do you feel the police should know ASL so that they can communicate with people in the deaf community?

 

11: What is school like for you?

 

12: Where you brought up in the deaf or hearing world?

 

13: What is your social life like?

 

14: What are some things people have said to you about your deafness that were unitentialy rude and upsetting.

 

15: Do you feel most people view being deaf as a disability?

    • Hello all! I have been practicing ASL by myself for several years, and I can communicate in slow conversations. But having no one to practice with, I often lose momentum in learning. I would like to become an interpreter someday, or even teach. I was excited to find a community such as this one!
    • Are you going to be learning ASL together or do they have a headstart already?  There are a few ASL dictionaries, like Handspeak, also a lot of material on Youtube.  Google "ASL signs", set it to videos and youtube, and just start watching all the videos.  Take lots of notes to remember the signs.  Open a new notepad file and put in it all the site addresses, you will want to find them later.  look for specific videos on every subject, alphabet, numbers, verbs, time, animals, etc.  Make sure you
    • I have a grandparent who was diagnosed deaf last year. I really want to stay in communication with him so am looking to learn ASL sign language. I'm not sure where to start I searched some different apps and found one called Pocket Sign but I don't have an iPhone. I see they have a website https://www.pocketsign.org has anyone ever used it? do you guys have any android/website ASL learning resources to recommend?
    • I'll have to try some of these
