Hello I am Nicole!

Recommended Posts

Hi there! My name is Nicole.

I came across a post on my feed a while back that talks about a story of a deaf man ordering at a fast-food chain. The cashier noticed that the man wasn't responding to her questions, so she asked him in ASL if he were hard of hearing. It was to the man's surprise that the cashier knew how to sign. With that, I've been interested in learning ASL for a few months now, but I haven't found a way to properly learn it. I've watched a few videos here and there that taught me how to finger spell, as well as signing some words. I'm looking forward to further my learning my ASL by understanding the gramatical structure and pick up more signs.

Good luck with learning. There are a few websites that could really help. Lifeprint.com is good. Startasl.com has an actual online curriculum youcan take. ASL Practice is a Facebook group with a Glide group chat that can help you learn. There are a lot of ways to learn.

    • Hi Tara, Let me know if you are still practicing ASL and then I will add you on Glide so we can send messages.  Thanks!
    • Hi all, I tried to learn a ASL years ago, but didn't get very far, as learning resources were harder to come by. I have always wanted to pursue it again. Recently, after seeing a few videos and movies that renewed my excitement, I enrolled in an online course. However, the most effective way to learn a language is to put it to use. So here I am. I hope to be able to practice with like-minded individuals. 
    • Hello! My name is Heather and I am interested in ASl because of my Deaf/hard of hearing family. My husband and two of our four children are D/HH. My husband has a moderate to severe hearing loss, our oldest son, 24-years-old has a mild to moderate hearing loss and our youngest son, 9-years-old has a moderate to severe hearing loss and speech issues. Their hearing loss is a congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. My husband and oldest son have lost more of their residual hearing fairly slowly over time but our youngest has lost his at a faster rate and he relies on sign to communicate because of his hearing loss and speech. He has an educational interpreter in school who is amazing! He has picked up on sign quickly but we have struggled to learn. With our youngest identifying with the amazing Deaf community, the fact that he is losing his residual hearing quickly and his hearing aids are not effective, and the need to communicate with him in sign daily I feel anxious to learn and become fluent. I have loved the Deaf community members that we have met and really want to be able to communicate with others. I look forward to learning and communicating on here!
