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.

    • Hi, Shona! My name is Mea and from my Display Name, I'm a noob! My parents used Sign as a way to teach me to talk when I was younger, but that was way back when! I'm 19 years old, and I am taking ASL 1 through a university in North Carolina. (I don't live in NC, but online learning is lovely!) Just know you're not alone! :)
    • Hi everyone! My name is Shona and I am an undergraduate biology student in Toronto, ON. I am currently learning ASL in school as an elective and it's been great but a little tough. I'm in my second year of learning ASL but am having trouble retaining the signs I've learned. I would love to become fluent and am looking for someone to practice with!  
    • Hey ya'll!! My name is Nhi and I am learning ASL right now in school. I have always wanted to learn and when I noticed that it was a class that I could take, I was SO excited. Unfortunately, I am a very slow learner and it is hard to make friends to help me in my class because of COVID. I hope being on here will help!!
