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.

    • Hello everyone, I'm currently in my third semester of learning ASL. My interest in deaf culture attracted me to the language, and I engage with the community in my town as much as possible. I've also enjoyed learning about the history, and I'm considering on furthering my education to a master's in applied linguistics. The most rewarding experience I've had thus far is being able to communicate and hold a conversation with my previous instructor (who is deaf) without needing to write anything out.   I live in a small college environment, so naturally, there aren't many opportunities to sign, but if anyone's interested in having a conversation, let me know!
    • Hey! I just completed that TV series. I picked up lots of signs too!
    • Hey! I am Sneha, International student pursuing my Masters in USA. I want to learn sign language and I have learnt few signs in the past few days. I would like to further improve my signing by communicating with people that share the same interest. Best way to learn is through practice with peers. So here I am, looking forward to be fluent in ASL. It would be helpful if someone can guide me and become friends along the process.
