Anonymous whispered: ((Hey scribble, how do you know so much about sign language? You seem to know more than just looking up random signs.))

((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…))

Anonymous whispered: Did you meet other countries beside France? Which one was the most impressive?

anikai88 whispered: Hey Dieter, so you are his voice and spend a lot of time with him together: Do you thing you and Klaus are becoming friends? Or do you prefer being just one of his workmates?

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!

Anonymous whispered: Did you get to talk to France?

Ah….no. He was paying more attention to Officer Beilschmidt. I’m not sure he noticed I was there, to be honest…

Anonymous whispered: Did you find out who that country was?

Oh, that was France.

imageThey 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 ….?

image…..Ack.

Anonymous whispered: Oh no, Hartmann! Every time I read that ask (probably 6 or 7 times by now), I misread it as "when do you think you'll *die* in battle" and get very concerned for you! D: Take care of yourself!

Oh…Sorry about that.

imageBut, ah… I am a soldier. I have to be ready for something like that.

I’m willing to die for my country.



imageThe other way around is more likely, ha.

….Huh?

Ah, thank you….
