Hello!

Im hearing and new to ASL, ive been wanting to learn since i was very little and finally ive decided to start! Im learning online as of now with a free course and once im done i want to move forward.

I'll admit im a bit nurvous! Even with only a bit of learning i can see tht the deaf culture and the community is unique and much more than just a language! Im so intrigued but a bit nurvous about meeting new people. I want to be respectful of this new world i want to be a part of. I may be over thinking this, if so please forgive me. All in all though, Im willing to learn and id love to make new friends :)

:) glad im not alone. Its a new world, but i feel like this site has really eased the nurves. Ive been reading the posts non stop hoping to understand, and i feel like i do have more of a understanding least wat i can from just reading bits and pieces. Im more excited to find a deaf event now and make friends :)

Hi Ondreea! I am new to this group and to ASL also. I have been studying ASL off and on since January learning thru a site I joined. I am hard of hearing (HOH) with severe loss in my right ear and almost deaf in my left. I have made some new friends who are deaf and others who are HOH here where I live and it helps me to feel apart of something bigger.
