    • I'm not deaf, but i know a sign language. Message me if you want to video chat?
    • Hi guys! I'm Tammam, I was trying to learn ASL long time ago, now I have to make a thesis in Web Science so I'm thinking of creating a website for ASL video chat one-to-one. What do you think? Is it a good idea?
    • Sounds good!
    • Hello everyone, I am very new to ASL. I am currently taking a SIGN 1A class at Monterey Penninsula College but Im somewhat behind and could use some extra help and practice. ASL has always fascinated me and I have a lot of friends who learned and now I want to learn so I can talk with them and any deaf people I meet.
    • It depends on the sign.  Some, like "drink", are iconic, meaning the sign has direct correlation to the meaning or motion of the object or action being signed.  Others, like "good", are arbitrary because there is no clear connection between the meaning of the sign and its motion, handshape, position, etc.
    • I’m currently trying to learn and better my ASL and I’m looking for someone to be patient and practice with me :)
    • I could maybe help you. I'm taking ASL in school rn
