As I read Deaf Again by Mark Drolsbaugh I can relate to Mark because I’m taking American Sign Language. Mark was born into deaf culture because both of his parents are deaf, however he was associated him self around hearing people. He conformed to the hearing world. I find that very hard to especially having deaf parents. I found interesting that he wasn’t deaf his whole life up in till the first grade he found something to be out of place. When I first took this class I didn’t know what I was getting my self into, if I was going to enjoy it or not. I was like Mark didn’t know how I was going to feel learning sign language if I was going to be able to grasp it. I’m still having trouble with it but I eventually will get it as I practice more. Mark had more poor signing skills because his peers were hearing that he went to school with, as well as his aunts and uncles and grandparents. It must be hard growing up with deaf parents especially being able to hear. He learned to associate him self with deaf culture and hearing culture. I couldn’t imagine what it would be like growing up with deaf parents. My experiences in ASL have taught me a lot about deaf culture, such as doing the labs. I learned from watching signs of respect how to act when going to a deaf event such as what’s appropriate and inappropriate. I learned the polite way to engage in a deaf conversation. I also learned that deaf people have much of a social life as hearing people. There are always deaf events happening. Such as in the Deaf Again Mark went to events ask well. I didn’t do lab two but I’m sure I will learn even more about deaf culture. Mark had a speech therapist so did I when I was younger. I can relate to mark. I didn’t like it because I felt different then everyone else. This is because I felt embarrassed like the odd one out. When I was younger I was delayed in talking it was hard for me to prounaced words. I
completely change the meaning of the word. The usages of declension and or conjugation as well as word/sign order are used in most languages but languages tend to rely on one more than the other. Inflections are commonly used in languages such as ASL and Latin while English and Chinese rely on the order of the symbols.
In order for a language to be a language and widely used by a large community of people the symbols and grammatical signals must have the same meaning and effect across the community….
ASL is more than a language; it is a miracle. I find myself often perplexed by the difficulty that must have come with making a language solely from hands. It is amazing that there was a nationwide speaking of the hands for the deaf community and anyone who is interested to learn can join in easily, but only if they can hoop over some of the languages major challenges. In the article “Why is Learning American Sign Language a Challenge?” by Professor Mike Kent, he discusses the top 5 ASL challenges….
American Sign Language
My social activity was also from home. I went to a graduation party that was for my friend who has deaf family members. So I sat there and was able to interact and ask about deaf culture for a good portion of the party. We played some of their games, which I have never played before. They were all fun and it was a great time.
Now since there wasn’t much to that, I decided to go to another event. I went to a car wash….
The Beauty of American Sign Language
One ordinary day, as I watched television slumped on my couch, I received a phone call from my dearest cousin. She was utterly excited about some free sign language classes they were offering at a community center that day, and so she invited me along. It was the greatest choice I ever made! As I came out that community center, I had a new profound passion towards American Sign Language. In learning about the deaf culture, it brought me to a new understanding….

The Colorado Institute for the Education of Mutes
"The Colorado Institute for the Education of Mutes" was founded by Jonathan R. Kennedy in 1874. Jonathan Kennedy had previously served as the steward of the Kansas School for the Deaf in Olathe. Kennedy opened the school on April 8, 1874. It started with only seven students; three of them were Kennedy own children and added six more during the course of that year. Also, its first location was a house in downtown Colorado Springs….
Deaf Children that have deaf parents are lucky because their parents have a better understanding of ASL and deaf culture, They are proud of who they are and have strong leadership skills and can pass down the skills that they need to use in the outside world, and overall their family is closer because of it. Their is a lot of Irony in this because Mark’s family situation was not quite like that. They did not embrace their deaf culture and tried so hard to be apart of the “normal” hearing….
