Hello,

I'm a new ASL learner.  I started in April of this year.  I'm learning online.  I started because I believe this is a beautiful language and I'm helping support my daughter because she is attending College and her major is Special Education for Deaf and Hard of Hearing.  My daughter is hard of hearing and she is so passionate about the deaf culture and it has inspired me to help in some way by learning not only ASL, but the deaf culture community.  Due to COVID it's hard to attend deaf events, so when I came across this site I felt this would be a good fit to gain additional information and practice my skills.

Hi, I wouldn't say im new to ASL but taking it more seriously now since I have time due to COVID. I learned ASL a little over 13 years ago but I haven't used it and since I am now older I have the patience to learn more and appreciate everything being taught. Im a terrible finger speller and its hard for me to read them when signed. I want to get more practice if anyone wants to video chat sometime.

    • Hello all! Thanks for taking the time to read my message. It has been a while since I've been active on a forum so this is kinda fun for me :') As a construction worker I've been exposed to loud noise pretty regularly. Sometimes its noise from machines, people working away, and what not. But it would appear that its been having an effect on my hearing! I've been getting my hearing tested quite frequently (I'd say maybe once a year for the past few years). Although my hearing is still very audible, there is some minor degredation. Also I have a family history of hearing complication. The more I think about it the more it seems like it might be a smart idea to learn to sign. I started learning online recently and found the process to be quite fun. Not only a valuble language, as a social person being able to opens doors to communicate with people that I may have had more difficulty with in the past. I really enjoy outdoorsie stuff (hiking, kayaking), and socializing, I'm a film nerd :') So what is your favorite movie! Please to mee you. Jo.
