Come out and meet other people who are learning and communicating with ASL.  Maybe you're just getting started and have some questions - bring 'em along!  Besides these events, do you have any fave places where you'd like to get together and sign? Talk to us about them and see who else might be interested.

So, you probably know there are other ASL groups out there.  What's special about this one?

- Beginners rule! I'm getting a little better myself, but still have some learning curve issues.  I try to keep a "beginner's mind" about it. It's a fun way to communicate. I'm not studying to be an interpreter, I'm not on a schedule or in a hurry, and this is not a part of my professional life.

- I’d like to see more events at local hangouts in Baltimore, and even in other cities and towns with awesome and undiscovered meeting spots.

- ASL Immersion is not a requirement here – it’s a great method, and one that lots of others are insisting upon in their groups.  I'm open to the discussions and questions about ASL that hearing students have that can be just too complicated to discuss in ASL, especially for beginners.  If it helps understand ASL better, it's all good to me.

- All levels are welcome, but if you're more advanced, please be willing to help.  Try to adjust to your audience and help them out. The goal is for everyone to communicate, learn and improve, not to be the best signer in the room.

- And, IT'S FREE!  There's been a lot of discussion lately about Meetup costs and asking members for donations.  Not here.  This is a hobby of mine and will stay that way until meetup.com decides I have too many members and tries to charge me like I'm a business or something.  In fact, if Meetup _EVER_ asks you for money on behalf of City Life ASL, please let me know.  I've instructed them not to.

Thanks for visiting, and come on out! No special invitations are necessary.  Please use the RSVP system to help others gauge how crowded a meetup might be ahead of time.  But if a meetup says it's "full" and you still want to attend, you're always welcome.  

I look forward to meeting-up with you!
