Hey there.  Sorry to hear that your having trouble with this.  Both your hearing issue and the website.  Learing to sign when you're already deaf and an adult is going to be hard.  I don't envy you your situation. 

You might want to find some websites that you can learn from before you look into any classes.  Classes tend to be geared toward hearing people taking ASL.  They don't tend to be geared for late deaf learners.  Lifeprint.com and the corresponding YouTube videos with Bill Vicars, they also have a facebook group called Lifeprint ASLU, might be helpful.  Dr Vicars is deaf himself and his youtube channel uses a lot of visual aids that might benefit you since you won't be able to hear any spoken instructions in a video. 

I hope this helps you.  Learning ASL is going to be difficult as a late learner, but I'm sure you can do it.

    • Hi I am taking ASL through our local community college on zoom. The teacher suggested we practice receptive ASL. Seems most in our class can sign but can't read it. I am playing the game and see there are amazing scores. They must have it on max speed and no mistakes? He told us to try to figure out the word instead of individual letters. I'm finding that really hard. What is your average score? When I increase the speed I freeze. I seem to get stuck on f and x.  Grateful for this website t
    • Hi Ryan, I also started to learn ASL to expland my knowlege and be able to communicate with more people. I'm a 21 year old female college student currently enrolled in a two year ASL training program, I have yet to be certified and am coming to the end of my semester soon, we should video chat, you could show me some of your BSL.  -Best, Jela
    • Hello Ryan, my name is Carleigh, and I am currently in my second ASL class at a community college. I would love to learn about some of BSL and how learning that has been for you. I am an 18-year-old female in my final semester in high school. I started taking sign this year and am hoping to either minor in it or major in it in college.  
    • Hiya everyone! I've decided to learn ASL in order to expand the access I have to the worldwide Deaf/hard-of-hearing community. I'm a 21-year-old male living in the UK and have studied BSL for the last three years while also using it in the care sector supporting deaf/blind clients. I am very aware of how the two deaf cultures differ across the Atlantic and want to form first-hand connections with anyone fluent in/learning ASL to broaden my knowledge on any topic relating the signing community in
