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.

    • Sorry for all the posts. I did some brief reading on sentence structure, I am reminded of my Russian studies where sentences can be very simple and order can determine emphasis. Obviously I will take anyone’s advice, but something like: - Here too many people - future you me dinner? - tomorrow i call, okay?
    • Okay, one more sentence while I'm asking "I was thinking the two of us could have dinner sometime - you know - without all these other people."
    • There’s someone in my social circle that I would like to get to know better. Whenever I see her, we are always with a crowd of people, so I was racking my brain to come up with how to ask and get her attention.   Among other things she is an ASL teacher... if I started signing to her I think she would be absolutely floored (and hopefully say yes!) I would like to sign to her: ”I would like to call you tomorrow, if that is okay.” I’ll cover some more general words between now and then, but that’s how I’d like to ‘surprise’ her as it were. Thanks in advance!
    • Hello Karen, Thanks for the suggestion, we'll take a look at adding numbers in a future update. Are you referring to the animation resource: https://www.signlanguageforum.com/asl/fingerspelling/message/ ?
