((first off - I really don’t know very much!! I’m still on a very beginner level.
i still have a lot to learn…ive only taken two semesters of an ASL class at community college. i can carry a basic conversation as long as the other person goes very slowly, and repeats themselves often, ha…
i have to give most of the credit to my Deaf teacher, she was hilarious and fun, and it definitely added more motivation to learn quickly! she also taught us a lot about Deaf culture and social norms, something i might not have gotten with a hearing teacher.
it was an environment that encouraged you to mess up and make mistakes and not be perfect - the main point of the class was communication, not things like grammar or syntax. those could come later. ive never taken a language class like that before, and as a learning environment, i adored it.
i also went to a few Deaf silent dinners in the area, which is mostly for Deaf people in the community to meet up at a restaurant and chat, and for ASL students to practice - its incredible how much you pick up in natural conversations like that.
im a bit out of practice, to be honest…id like to take another class in the fall, but im not sure if it’ll work out. fingers crossed…))
Most impressive? Um….
E-Even if that’s true, he’s still my superior officer! I can’t just ignore something like rank!
I’m not sure this question applies in the military!
Ah….no. He was paying more attention to Officer Beilschmidt. I’m not sure he noticed I was there, to be honest…
Oh, that was France.
They were our allies in the last war -
Wait. Should I say “he” was our ally, in this case? France - he was our - I mean, Prussia’s - I mean, Officer Beilschmidt’s - ally ….?
Oh…Sorry about that.
But, ah… I am a soldier. I have to be ready for something like that.
I’m willing to die for my country.
The other way around is more likely, ha.
Let’s see, you’ve died for me at least…twice, right?
What am I supposed to be looking for?
Ah, thank you….
(..Did my mother send you?)
Huh? Oh. I’m still writing it wrong, too. I keep putting last year and scratching it out….
Thought I’d doodle this cutie
Hurt the cutie though, whoops
