    • Hi everyone, My name is Micky. I'm a beginning ASL student, and am going into ASL 3 for the Spring '19 quarter. I got into ASL because I had a Deaf friend back in grade school, and I felt bad that we couldn't communicate without an interpreter. I'm also hard of hearing myself, so I'd really like to learn more. I'd love to find people who want to chat and practice with me.
    • I would love to learn with you. I am also just recently learning asl. 
    • i would love to learn with you im brely learning as well !  
    • Hi. I'm a beginner to ASL and I'm looking for people to sign with. I am 11 years old and I started learning ASL by watching Switched at Birth which has deaf characters in it. I am currently home-schooled and I live in Vermont. Please reply if you would like to sign with me and we can find a time to sign together in a video chat room.
    • hi! My name is stella. i would be happy to chat with you as i am fluent in asl becasue of deaf family/friends. We could set up a time and i will gladly chat with you in the mixed asl chat room.  
    • Hi, Jason! My name is Joy and I would love a pal to practice with!  I live in the great city of Austin, Texas and work as a teacher. I need to seriously improve my signing for my work. Although ideally, we would also have someone from the Deaf community with us, I am certain that there would be great value in the 2 of us signing together, novices we may be. Now I am going to attempt to record something like this in a video for you. Hope to hear from you soon... Joy Ok, guess who! So i went to record this (and I recorded a video the other day on this computer, so I know it works), and it told me that my camera and microphone were blocked and that I need to unblock them. But i cannot figure out how! Can you help?
    • Back in the 1990s I was a slam poet, and I've been told that my signing is particularly theatrical as a result. I know that the sign for THEATER is backwards pinwheeling of thumbs-up "A" hands in front of your chest; but is there a separate sign for THEATRICAL, or do I simply sign THEATER in an exaggerated way?
    • I just learned about Switched at Birth, and began watching it on Netflix this week. Have you seen that video of Sean Berdy signing the entire alphabet in four seconds? Pretty amazing.
