Ugh, I hate it when a post is written as one super huge paragraph. That's just too much. I can't even tell when a new idea begins. It's too much.
Tell me about it! I'm in some online courses at a college, yet some students would make a post that's one paragraph that's equal to about 2 pages without any break in it. I immediately discard the post and makes a comment, I refuse to read your super huge paragraph till you properly break them into the correct paragraphs as it's intended to be.

I can understand Deaf being bored by hearing people trying to learn ASL. If I were the parent of a deaf child, I would want all the hearing children in the neighborhood to know ASL so my child would have playmates. I am taking ASL as Donovan Scholar (+age 65) at a local college. I get excited when I can under some of the closed captioning on the news. But, I am reluctant to go intrude at a deaf coffee because I feel that they don't want to be bothered with me.
I want to teach my young niece some signs so as she ages she can learn the language properly.
