Hey Adrian

I’m a sign language interpreter in Australia… hence, I’m fluent in Auslan. I married into the community, and my kids have moderate losses - one identifies as hearing impaired, the other as Deaf.

I know a little LSF and ASL too, but not whole lot other than the alphabet. I’m actually considering studying NGT and Sign Language Linguistics in Amsterdam in a couple of years.

So good to see you here! I have a few Deaf friends who learn other languages, but I don’t think they will be here this week.


Glad to know you and surprised that a Deaf person participates here in a “hearing activity”. My name is Victor and I´m a Mexican Sing Language Interpreter… I know a litte bit of ASL. Glad to read you.


Hi Adrian! Impressive what you’ve been able to accomplish. I’m interested in sign languages from a linguistic and cognitive standpoint. Would love to talk about your process and philosophy of language.

I’m now planning an accessibility panel and would love to have more Deaf participants involved. I hope you’ll join!

Nice to meet you! I only just found this thread (there are just too many interesting threads here :see_no_evil:) …

I’ve always been interested in sign language but haven’t had the chance to learn one yet. Hopefully I will, one day :slight_smile:


You’re really inspiring, and you’re showing us that language is beyond sound, that we still communicate with each other as human beings through multiple modalities!


Hey CateDeans. Thanks for reaching out to me! I am so glad to know that there are many people who want to learn sign languages! Are you bow living in the Netherlands?? OMG! Awesome and you have so much international exposure! Are you planning to attend next year conference??

Hola! Nice to meet you! Yes I am so passionate about languages so I wanted to get to know more about you guys! How did you find the conference? Is Mexican Sing Language interpreter very different from ASL??

Sure! I would love to share my thought with you! Are you familiar with sign language?

I am sure that you will get an opportunity to pick up sign language! Where are you currently based in?

likewise you are also stepping out of your comfort zone to learn new languages! You are awesome!
