Wanting to understand

by Anonymous

I work at a school where there are a few students who cannot hear at all. The school where I was for many years had a couple of children and parents who communicated through some sign language. Some made audible sounds. The ones at my school now do not speak at all. They write everything for me. I want to be able to communicate with them through the language they know, just as I would like others to communicate with me through English. I’m not a young chickie anymore and don’t know how long it will take me to learn ASL, but I will surely try. Bear with me please! I want to communicate properly.

Age is not a barrier to learning

by: Jennivie Wirries


Age is not a barrier to learning. I read a journal the other night while searching before I found this wonderful site. It is linked to a paid sign language course I had been contemplating joining…someday. Now I might not need to thanks to this site. The blog starts when the man bought his first ASL book and goes on chronicling his studies and experiences. I found it very informative. The man started learning in his 50’s https://www.lifeprint.com/asl101/pages-layout/reflections.htm
