Welcome to the terpstube blog!

Welcome to terpstube, a place for information, networking, and continuing education within the realm of ASL, and professional sign language interpreting. We are currently in the process of creating a revolutionary application geared towards online courses providing CEU’s to certified interpreters in a modern, and more streamlined fashion than any other method currently available. With our revolutionary content delivery system, you will be able to get the latest interpreting training streamed directly to your home, or place of business, and train as you have time. Without the hassle and expense associated with the current antiquated method of obtaining CEU’s.

As support grows, our site will as well. We expect the content delivery system to be ready within this year. Please help spread the word, and support our endeavor by using this blog, and submitting content for everyone to use. We will monitor it closely, and anyone violating the NAD-RID code of professional conduct, starting negative discussions, using inappropriate language, spamming the site, or using it for self promotion will be removed and blocked.

Thank you for your continued support.

Who’s the best lipreader of all?

My life experience of travelling around the world and “getting on with it” has served to make me a better lipreader. I can even lipread in Spanish, Japanese and Arabic.

Also I always hold onto the leash and have him close to me whenever we go shopping. When I was nearly done shopping, a cashier followed us in the store. I was wondering why she was not up front working. All of a sudden…
