Why to you want to be a part of East Bay Area Berkeley/ Oakland ASL Meet up?

I've always wanted to learn sign language since I was a child and plan on taking classes in the fall at Berkeley City College... In the mean time before I start classes, I thought it would be great to connect with those who are fluent/just learning to create community and make new friends...

Where should you like East Bay Area Berkeley/ Oakland ASL Meet up?

I currently live in Alameda and will be moving to Berkeley in June so Berkeley or Oakland would be fine to meet up...

Why Sign Language ?

I first learned of sign language watching tv when I was a kid where there was a commercial that showed you how to sign "hi. what's your name? let's be friends"... I would always prayt hat it would come on so I could get it right.. Then I learned to finger spell in grade school and I was so excited when I learned the alphabet... It's my favorite language because I love how expressive it is... Most hearing people are not expressive when they talk... Some speak in monotone and as an expressive person, I talk with my hands, body and face already that it makes sense to learn ASL...


Hey there... I'm Teresa and I'm a fitness professional here in the Bay Area... I have a 14 year old son and a small dog that likes to take me on walks, I love to laugh, dance and spend time with people I admire... I look forward to meeting you soon!

What Teresa! is saying about this Meetup Group

The people that I met were so friendly and open which is not as easy to find these days.... What I loved the most was that in a time of social networking, connecting face to face and having conversation was super special... My love of ASL has been magnified more and I'm excited to finally make the time to learn this beautiful language... Thank you Antoine and Charlotte!
