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
