    • i would like to practice asl with somebody, thank you  
    • Hey friends! Happy Deaf Awareness Month. My name is Adison. I am hearing. I am 24 years old. I am from California. I live in Washington DC now. I'm hoping to move soon but that's a different story. I work as a flight attendant. I love my job and it is a ton of fun! I learned ASL in college. From the first class, I just fell in love. The language is just beautiful, the culture is amazing, and I wanted to just learn it all. I got pretty good and was easily holding conversations. But I graduated and stopped signing. I stopped taking ASL courses and practicing. Naturally, I lost my knowledge of the language. Fast forward three years to now. I've decided to relearn the language. I have been using the internet, watching Youtube and Instagram. With my job, I travel a lot and am usually gone for 20 days every month making it hard to take an actual class. But I have found some great people and now I found this website. I want to meet you all and practice and just chat. Thank you for watching and I'm excited to meet you!

      Side note, not signed. I have retained a fair amount of vocab but a lot of the grammar has escaped me. If you have any corrections I would greatly appreciate them!
    • Hi  made a new friend and i really want some help learning to better communicate with her. Im enrolled in a class and my lecturer says practice makes perfect. i can finger spell and some pronouns so far.
    • I have a few questions for deaf people, I am doing a project pls be honest if you are deaf or not. I tried to make sure these questions would not be offensive to anyone in the deaf community. Please answer the following 1: Do you feel because you are deaf you have less of a voice in your community?   2: Can you lip read and speak?   3: Do you feel hearing people should learn ASL because you have been forced to adapt to a hearing society and you can speak to us so why shouldn't we be able to speak to you.   4: Is it hard having hearing parrents, what's the hardest part?   6: What is your favorite type of entertainment?   7: Do you watch Netflix? What is it like for you? How do you watch it? With subtitles?   8: How do you experience music, what does it mean to you? What's your favorite artist?    10: Do you feel the police should know ASL so that they can communicate with people in the deaf community?   11: What is school like for you?   12: Where you brought up in the deaf or hearing world?   13: What is your social life like?   14: What are some things people have said to you about your deafness that were unitentialy rude and upsetting.   15: Do you feel most people view being deaf as a disability?  
    •   Hello there!  The other day I have received a picture of the kid I’m sponsoring. She posed making a sign with her hand, and I have never seen that before (and yes, she is deaf). Any clues?  Your help is appreciated 🙂  
    • If you need to help or want to talk I be glad to do some
