Recommended Posts

Hi guys!  I'm Alyson from Kansas.  Looking for people to practice with, though unfortunately I don't have webcam yet (it's on my list for next month).  I'm brand new at ASL, I started learning in June after I found out that holy smokin' lizards, I cannot understand a single word people are saying anymore.  I'm not deaf, but I have horrible, horrible APD (Auditory Processing Disorder) and relied almost completely on lip reading.  I didn't realize just how MUCH I relied on lip reading until the mask mandate came into place and everyone started mumbling muffled monkey gibberish at me instead of words.   So I'm crash coursing like mad from every online source I can   and would love to hear from others with APD, if you have tips or tricks or frustrations.

Hi! My name is Jennifer. I've taken a couple asl classes but with covid happening I'm not ready to go to college for it. I'm considered Hard of hearing and I totally understand what you mean about having a hard time hearing and understanding these people with these masks on. Do you wanna maybe learn together?

    • When searching for a good calculator app, specifically one that can handle calculations like the pythagorean theorem calculator angle https://calculatorprofessional.com/pythagorean-theorem-calculator, look for apps with high user ratings and robust features. Read reviews to see if other users mention its accuracy and usability for trigonometric calculations. This approach will help you find a reliable and user-friendly Pythagorean theorem calculator for angles.
    • Hi! I just started ASL today with great interest. As of now, I only know the basics including the alphabets, numbers 1-20, a few colors, and pronouns. Although I will only be learning on my free time, I still hope that I will be able to make friends here and learn together with them! 💙
    • Hey there, I'd be interested to chat and see if our levels match well for practicing together Message me!
    • I have not started learning yet, but am needing to get motivated to start! I have a hearing processing disorder and my Dr encouraged me to learn. I'd love new friends to learn with!
