    Better communication.

    What sort of communication or tools do you use to keep up a conversation with hearing who don't sign at all especially in crowded places?

    Not deaf, but trying to learn

    Hard of hearing here and been learning ASL for 2 years and people, who know me a bit, say I have patience to teach ASL even though I am not fluent, just decent, I guess. So, wanna learn from a video call so you learn sign language and have fun? :D

    Overwhelmed trying to meet new people

    What do you feel uncomfortable when meeting new people? I'm much better when it's just 1 person. How do you do when you feel 'I wanna meet that group' in front of you? I need not feel over-efforted sensation or under much pressure because it's hearing loss so challenging. Any tips are welcome!
