If you are interested in improving your ASL skill, I would recommend you to study ASL at your local college or you can find free ASL courses online at ASL University http://www.lifeprint.com/ . You can then practice communicating with deaf people by attending deaf events in your area. Watching deafness related movies are also a great way to familiarize yourself about deaf culture.
Hebrews 10: 35-36 “So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what He has promised.”
“From my online research, I found that the average time needed for a person to become fluent in ASL is between 6-8 years depend on that person’s learning effort. I have a passion for ASL and I am confident in signing because I have studied that language since college. For me, attending deaf events are important opportunities to learn to communicate with deaf people. I enjoy outreaching to the Deaf Community to meet new friends. ” said Joe Cepeda.
