The reason why I am learning ASL


Recommended Posts

Apparently, the world of ASL has come straight for me. I recently moved, and both my neighbors on each side of my house are deaf. I had to youtube some basic signs of "Hello, Nice to meet you, How are you and etc" Just to have some conversation with them. If that was not an enough reason, I recently had a few patients come in that are deaf, and has been signing. Good thing I was able to learn some by then, and signed the basic greetings. I want to be able to communicate with my patients and my neighbors, as learning a new language will definitely add some points on a resume as well, but mainly to communicate and have a fun ordinary conversation with my neighbor and patients.

Yay you! 
I had a deaf roommate for 6 months who was helping me come up with a for deaf by deaf Vanlife project and then he moved out of state. Then a deaf client hired me to fix the solar in their campervan and she has now taken over heading our videos. My son is a senior in high school and his language is/has been asl so I figured this is the perfect time to add another language to my life and practice daily.

I see you wrote 10 days ago, but if anyone is around, I’m up for forum chatting.

    • 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.
