Welcome to AllDeaf dot com! My name is Ryan and I am from North Texas. I'm 33 and am single and deaf and I use a cochlear implant to hear. I still know ASL and I participate deaf socials in North Texas. I'm on here to create new friends whether they are in Texas or from another state. Anyways, welcome to AllDeaf! Enjoy!

Hello welcome to AD. Sorry you get teased. I have an older cousin that still teases me from time to time and does fake ASL to me asking what it means.

I know you're looking for a deafie friend but if you want an open minded hearie (I just joined)

I just started learning and would love to learn from someone who can actually sign!

Hey! I just got the idea today to find a deaf forum and here I am. I'm currently trying to teach myself ASL as well. Using bill vicars videos and looking at song interpretations (songs that I've made sure are not just signed English). Although I realize some words may be different where I am but I can work with that when I take college courses.

I'm currently a junior in high school and I am very interested in learning sign language. I do not know of anyone who is deaf and there is no one at ,y school that I am aware of that is deaf. So until I meet some, I'll just resort to here to learn what I can. So:whip: Hi :)

Hi, Marie!! Nice to meet you! I'm around the same age (32). I am hearing, but have been teaching myself some signing ever since I learned a little from the interpreters for the 4 Deaf students in my class in 6th grade and fell in love with the language. I just decided to go back to college to become an interpreter and I'm almost done with ASL 1. I have one Deaf friend. He uses SEE, not ASL, but my program is teaching me ASL. My friend said he wouldn't think I was a student and that I sign very well. If you're interested, send me a message and I'll share my Skype ID. Maybe we can Skype sometime and get to know one another. :) Either way, Welcome to AD!

ASL is somewhat confusing to me. i need a tutor to help me understand the ASL sentences. I use a mix of SEE and ASL, not sure what that is called. I was raised with SEE/oral method. I hate the oral method. I have a counselor who is hearing and hates me signing to the point of mocking the sign language that i know.

What a jerk that counselor is to you should ask for a new one and report the one you have for mocking you . You shouldn't have to put up with that.

Thank you very much!!!!! I'm scared that she might try to lock me up for that!!!!!!!!!!! Not sure how to tell her no and to leave me alone. Shes told others to discourage me from using any form of sign language....:(

what would be the reason she locked you up for using sign language?

And the reason she told people not to let you use sign?

What is the cause of your hearing loss? As in diagnosis
