Hello!

Recommended Posts

My name is Richard. I am new to ASL but not new to hearing issues. I have always had issues with tinitus and vertigo since I was a kid. Now, in my forties I have signifigant issues hearing speech. Hearing aids don't seem to work well enough for me anymore and am now tired of fighting it. I have so much to learn and think about... work, home, social life, etc.


A few days ago I started research on ASL. I started watching instructional videos and practicing. I know that I may be the only one in my family that will use it but I have to. I came across this site and am hoping to immerse myself in ASL as much as possible, after all, I learned Spanish that way.

I am looking for a practice buddy that is also learning ASL. Oh, and new friends too. 😁

    • 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.
    • HI! How do you sign it?
