Why I am learning ASL

Recommended Posts

I was going to record a video but it was being finicky. I started learning ASL because my cousin is deaf. After starting to learn basics in grade school I learned that I have a small knack for languages. From there I started learning French and Spanish and also took a year of Latin. So I started to be able to communicate with my cousin and am continuing to hopefully be an interpreter.

    • 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.
