  4. Hi! My name is Nancy, and I’m new to this site, and hoping there might be some good advice here. I learned finger spelling in ASL as I was growing up from a school friend who was patient enough to teach me. Recently I was looking up the meaning of the word online, and somehow I found a great online dictionary that included pronunciation, meanings, alternate spellings and the ASL finger spelling of it at the bottom. It was phenomenal, but I cannot find it now, after multiple searches. I know it exists...just can’t find it again, argh. I’ve worked in health care (as a nursing assistant, an

  7. Hello Everyone, My name is Diane and I have been a taekwondo instructor and coach for the past 8 years in Scarborough, ON. I have worked with students and parents with a variety of abilities, disabilities, and/or challenges. The past four years I have taught a young girl that is completely deaf but has cochlear implants so we have been able to communicate freely to date. Recently she has expressed an interest in the high performance (HP) division of our sport which she will be elidable for next year. Our sport rules say that when she is competing HP she can not use her hearing aids
  8. Hi guys ! I am currently taking an ASL class and I would eventually like to become fluent but I have no one to practice with.. I used to have a friend in high school on the bus who was deaf and she taught me a lot of ASL but then she moved away and we lost touch unfortunately. I would love to talk to you guys sometime and get some practice in!

  17. I am new to signing. I have wanted to learn, but never took the steps until now. I am a student on online learning. I want to be able to have someone to practice with and become fluent in signing. What time are you available? I live in Nebraska and believe we are an hour or two ahead of you. Let me know if you are interested and what time we could get together.
  18. I am currently in a deaf school even though i am hearing person the school is great and welcoming communicating with deaf people is a really good experience because even though i am not deaf i see the different sides of the deaf and hard of hearing culture and the language itself is very beautiful .
  19. Well my family comes from alot of diverse backgrounds...mostly bad over good...and everyday on my way to school from the time I was 12 till now...I still see the same Hearing school for the Deaf...and something about that...Draws me in, everyday i pass it.

  23. Hi there! I am an ASL student from California going into the end of my 2nd year of ASL and transferring soon into an interpretation program. Would you like to practice sometime?
  24. So, as an example, lets say we were talking about a website and I want to know the name of the website. In context, it would be appropriate to use the sign similar in your video. Because the sign used in your video can also be used to express, "it is called..." because i want to know the name of the website and you sign "name you" the translation can be expressed as such. So if we were talking about a person, and you ask for their name it would be the normal sign for name which is "U" handshape and are crossed like an x over one another tapped twice with the corresponding facial expressions. I
  25. My name is Dyanna and I am a recent college graduate with a bachelors in biology living in New Mexico. When I was younger my middle school was attached to a hard of hearing school and I never was able to interact with those students. Years later I've finally made the jump to actually learning ASL because it looks cool and you can use it in situations that require silence to communicate (and I want to be sneaky and talk to people in secret lol). I have stated learning the basics on this website called SignSchool and it has been very helpful but, I would love to practice with someone else to act
  26. Hi! I'm Ronnie, I'm from the UK. I use ASL as a gateway for expressive art but still class myself as a learner. I'm selective mute and I find ASL helps bridge the gap between hearing people and my voice. (Which just doesn't seem to work! Haha) I can understand BSL and ASL but prefer communicating in ASL.
  27. 1. I like to learn new things I’ve learned how to fly, I’ve learned a good bit of Spanish, I’m a science nut and love reading about science and technology. I figured ASL would be something that would be good to learn as well! 2. I want to meet new people and become involved with the Deaf community in my area There is a whole community of people that I am detached from, simply because I lack the ability (knowledge) to communicate with them. That’s a shame, and I want to change that so I can meet new people and make new friends. 3. It looks like a fun language Two year
  28. Hi all. I’m 44 years old. Just wanting to learn ASL. Gonna take an actual class in January. Been learning some online (Youtube) so I know the alphabet and some basic beginning signs/greetings, but looking forward to learning more. Married for 22 years, 3 children aged from 15-20.. 2 dogs, 7 saltwater fish. Like aviation, sports, fast cars (I drive a Tesla Model 3) (mid-life crisis car, I suppose). By the way, my profile pic was after quarantining for a while with no haircut, no shaving. Cheers!
  29. Thank you for your response! I know that the two signs are different. What I want to know is why they are different. I‘m wondering why someone would sign „Name you“ instead of „what is your name“. I imagine that they have two entirely different meanings. The reason I didn’t use the facial expressions is because I‘m new to sign language and I don’t really know yet how to make the proper facial expressions. In the video I saw, however, the person furrowed their brows and tilted their head forward. Hopefully this helps!

    • Hi!  My name is Nancy, and I’m new to this site, and hoping there might be some good advice here.  I learned finger spelling in ASL as I was growing up from a school friend who was patient enough to teach me.  Recently I was looking up the meaning of the word online, and somehow I found a great online dictionary that included pronunciation, meanings, alternate spellings and the ASL finger spelling of it at the bottom.  It was phenomenal, but I cannot find it now, after multiple searches.  I know it exists...just can’t find it again, argh.  I’ve worked in health care (as a nursing assistant, and a nurse) and have found ASL invaluable...so glad I learned at least the finger spelling level.  It has been invaluable. If I could find that dictionary again, I think there is interest for a lot of people who may not have been as lucky as I was to have learned it in childhood.  That dictionary I felt also raised awareness of the need to be open to learning this level.  I wish all dictionaries were so thoughtful!  Now that I’ve searched for this particular dictionary, I sadly see that is not the case.  Has anyone got an idea about this dictionary resource?  If so, I would so appreciate a link.  Thank you so much.
