What is your experience with ASL?

I know some ASL, sometimes the facial expressions and body language are difficult for me to understand since I can't see. I am flexible to switch between ASL grammar and English grammar. When people want to practice ASL or when deaf people are more fluent in ASL, I adapt but may need more explanation of things sometimes since I can't read facial expressions or body language. But given a choice, I prefer PSE which is a mix of ASL and English grammar as my primary mode of communication.

What made you decide to join this group?

My fiancee, Joe and I wanted to get to know some people since we are new to this community in Tucson and we want a social venue where to met and hang out with people that know sign language.

Introduction

I am a deaf-blind individual and my fiancee, Joe and I just moved to Tucson in September. We enjoy meeting new people, making new friends, participating in various activities and help students practice their sign language skills.

What Krista C. is saying about this Meetup Group

Great, just didn't know what kind of people were going to be there ie ASL students, deaf people, etc. We didn't know what to expect but it was GREAT no matter what!! :)
