I’m going to a college where there’s a fairly big deaf community so I feel like learning some basic ASL will make communication easier. I’ve found some good online resources so I’ll try to make a little time for it everyday 2 months ago

So we’re babysitting the little guy. His mom is in the hospital :( so last night her new guy, also deaf, dropped him off, and again, felt like as ass, but at least I knew what he was saying to my husband (it’s funny people assume he knows more than me, but I’m the one making the effort to learn). I just wish I knew how to tell him “no problem” when he thanked me for babysitting. Need to look it up or something. Just now that I’ve been learning from the YouTube channel I mentioned, I don’t really trust any other channels or pages. He brings up a good point about being qualified to teach. I wish I could afford a class, but I just can’t. 4 months ago
practiced the alphabet again. Not that Idon’t know them yet, I basically do, just having trouble with some of the handshapes. 4 months ago
letters and colors with my daughter. She learned most of the colors, just had trouble with grey and brown. Had trouble getting her hands to make the “P” and “Y” shapes. But that’s OK,the idea is for me to learn. I’m not going to push her. 4 months ago
I practiced the alphabet, learned comaprisons, and basic colors. I know I won’t learn the whole language from YouTube videos, but I’m just exited to finally be learning something! Lol… going to try to practice daily, but we’ll see how the weekend goes. Kids and hubby may not give me time… 4 months ago
and haven’t worked on this, I figured it’s something I can do while sitting on my butt lol.. So I hit YouTube and found a wonderful channel run by a terrific teacher. He doesn’t distract you with speaking, shows signs from different angles and shows how not to do it, something a lot of books and videos (that I’ve seen anyway) don’t mention. Point is, I feel like I might actually learn something finally, lol..

“learn a language” is too big for me. I’m going to leave this up, but make smaller goals within this goal. I’m not quite sure exactly what to do yet, but I’ll think of it. 5 months ago
I have hardly practiced at all since. I need to STEP UP and keep practicing. I hope that the classes restart this year, so I can bring JG to be a study buddy. 5 months ago
