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. 😁

    • Hi hello! I'm new to the forum. I was born hard of hearing, but only recently learned about the Deaf/HoH community and American Sign Language. I attend two schools and take ASL classes at my local community college. I love signing because it makes communication easier/enjoyable/understandable for me and I regularly attend Deaf socials/events because I enjoy making new friends. This summer, I took an amazing opportunity to study abroad for six months, but am now worried about not having the opportunity to retain everything I've learned thus far and feeling isolated again. Hence, I joined this forum. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks!~
