@bebongang ; agree, learning a language out of context is bad for the new learners and the language as a whole..

My name is Bebonang. That is true that trying to learn to sign on online like what Signwithme is way out of context. It is a lot better to go to the Deaf class than online. If they continue to try to sign online, they will make a lot of mistakes and will not sign properly.
Beside, where do all the people who want to sign come on here all of a sudden? That is way too many people here. Good grief. Give us a break.
@Ashleycothren. You are asking if this is for deaf and hard of hearing only.
Yes, we are both deaf and hard of hearing but we also include hearing people who are interest in Deaf Culture and want to learn ASL or any other sign language like BSL (British Sign Language).
This is a Discussion Board so that we can discuss our deafness and/or hard of hearing including lots of topics that we want to discuss, not like having chat which can be really confusing if we get all mix up. So Discussion on topic is better to that we can stay on the topic instead of mix up not on topic. That is what we are here for to learn about Deaf Culture and our deafness and hard of hearing, even late deafened people who became deaf late in their age whether they were 2 years old or 6 years old or 30 years old, even 50 years when they became deaf or hard of hearing for the first time. Everyone is invited to come on board but we have to make sure that we can screen them not to be insulted to our intelligent and to us, d/Deaf and Hard Of Hearing (HOH).
And please go to the Deaf class if there is a place and a Deaf instructor to teach you properly and learn about Deaf Culture. Thank you.
