    • Hi y'all, I'm currently enrolled in a ASL 2 class however I feel like I need more help practice and I don't not have enough people in my life for me to practice. I am also studying to be a speech pathologies which is how I became exposed to the Deaf community. After my summer class is over I don't want to lose the skills and language I have learned.
    • Hey Kelly! Are you taking the ASLPI Evaluation? If not, what competency exam?  I'm asking because I've recently taken an interest in the whole ASL levels concept and was trying to figure out where I stood(I'm self taught).  Anyways, welcome!
    • Hi guys! I'm 35 and hearing but took ASL through college and undergrad. I worked as an interpreter for a bit right after high school. I listed ASL as a competency on a job application (I start Tuesday) and I have to complete a competency exam through Gallaudet and really need to brush up on my skills (it's been way too long!!!). I love to find someone to video chat with the challenge and help me refresh my skills! Thanks so much!!
    • Welcome to the page Emily!
    • Hello!  My name is Emily. I am a sophomore in college. My major is Exploratory Education and my minor is ASL! I love ASL and the history revolving it and the Deaf community! I want to make friends and also practice ASL, there is so much more I have left to learn and I just don't want to stop! If you can't tell by all the exclamation marks, I feel as if I have a very giddy personality. I don't like to be down, or negative. I wouldn't call my self "upbeat" because i like to say around as much as i can and do nothing! :)  I love binge watching Netflix (right now I'm deeply into Switched at Birth its crazzzyyyyy)  I love to face time. Because I feel when you are texting, you can see the sarcasm in someones face! lol I also love jokes. Puns are my absolute favorite. I hope to meet some people!  God Bless! <3  
    • If either of you guys are interested in signing - I'm a definite NEWBIE.  I sign and finger slow and read them even slower.  I'll probably be checking in around 9 or 10 tomorrow night to see if you want to chat.  I'm gonna have to check out LifePrint.  If we do the same lessons at the same time - it would be great for us to practice together.  
    • Hey there Goby, you don't need anything special (just don't use internet explorer/Microsoft edge since these browsers aren't compatible with the video chatting portion). On the website, there's a specific portion for video chatting. You just join a room if there's anyone online. Here's the link if you can't find it: https://www.signlanguageforum.com/asl/asl-video-chat-rooms/
