Hi, I'm Tamara

Hello everyone,

I'm going to try this website as a way of learning some ASL for mascot use.  I know sounds weird right?!  Here's the story- I am sometimes the mascot for my company.  The mascot is not allowed to talk, has limitations in mobility (no dunks for this guy), a head that is formed (no movement) and 4 fingered hands.  I try to be as expressive as I can with what I've got- hands on cheeks to be shocked, hands on mouth to be surprised, blow kisses, grab the eyeballs high above my head to "hide" them,  and lots of dancing.  Then the idea occurred to me that I may be able to incorporate some ASL.  Downside to this plan- 4 fingers and dexterity is limited.  So any positive, encouraging, exciting mascot like language I could use but more of a hand movement. Sorry... this is difficult to explain, but I have the best of intentions.

    • That is on, if you choose to earn from the I internet.  I am doing the same since there aren't any deaf people besides me anywhere near me so I stick to learning the ameri an sign language since from what I see is used mostly here, I think we can make a lot of progress practicing together. I'm on the beginners level still, I'm taking free online classes too and those help a lot. Would u like to practice with me?
    • if you dont use it, you lose it right? hope i can get to the level where we can help each other through practice. i live in a different country, so ASL is used here ALTHOUGH some deaf people do study it so that can communicate on a global level. for now, i am confined to the internet to learn.
