    My reasons to speak with my hands

    That is on, if you choose to earn from the I internet. I am doing the same since there aren't any deaf people besides me anywhere near me so I stick to learning the ameri an sign language since from what I see is used mostly here, I think we can make a lot of progress practicing together. I'm on the beginners level still, I'm taking free online classes too and those help a lot. Would u like to practice with me?

    My reasons to speak with my hands

    if you dont use it, you lose it right? hope i can get to the level where we can help each other through practice. i live in a different country, so ASL is used here ALTHOUGH some deaf people do study it so that can communicate on a global level. for now, i am confined to the internet to learn.

    It's a Pleasure

    Hi Aigneis, would you like to video chat? I would love to practice with you! I’ve take 2 classes and know a bit of sign language, but I need help reading the signs of other people. You can add me on Facebook so we can messenger chat (Kimberly Borders, I’ll insert my profile picture from fb as my profile picture on here so you know what I look like on fb, if you’d like to add me, or I’m available on snap chat @kimmiecloo97 ) thank you!

    Learning ASL

    I am Terry from Indiana and would like to have someone who could help me with my sign language. How can we chat here via video?
  13. In all honesty, sign language has been a passion of mine since i can remember, maybe around the age of 10, my grandmother was deaf, and my mother is deaf in one ear, and then down to me, i cant tell if its hereditary in my family or not lol, but i started learning from my grandmother before she died. Whenever i would see her use sign language to someone it just seemed so personal, and unique to her. i could see all her emotions as she felt them when she signed. you could see happiness when she was happy and fury when she was angry, it seems way more expressive and you can see how someone is feeling to the tee. its just beautiful, it just made me want to learn it more. as i got older i never seen anyone ever use sign language and it became hard for me to communicate with other people and them me because no one knew the language and didnt bother to try to learn it to talk to me. i had a hard time getting by in school and even as i came into my adult years, the fact that there is no one around that knows it makes me what to learn it more because its different and its a silent and graceful language just as i am, so not only am i learning for communication purposes but also because i want people to see the beauty in it and how more expressive we can be with this language.

    Side Note..

    I forgot to mention, i am currently studying ASL on a site called SartASL if anyone has heard of it before. great place to start as well. im studying from the free lessons for now but it helps if you have someone to practice with. i have always wanted to learn asl since i was a kid so this just makes things a lot more fun, if anyone has any tips or advice as well as instructions on how to navigate and use this site it would be great thanks!

    It's a Pleasure

    Um, hello everyone. I'm Aigneis, I just joined onto the site and learning the ropes. I am deaf but I am able to read lips ok, still learning. I am also learning to sign as well. At this point in time I'd say I am around the beginners level. I have no friends nor do I know any other deaf signers near me so i would love to have someone to help me learn and practice with me as well. I dont use my. Voice much but I do when necessary, anyway, nice meeting you all.

    Hello!

    Hello! My name is Andy, and I've been looking for a website where I could connect with more people who sign and/or deaf people! I'm fifteen years old and have been practicing sign since I was ten. I want to be an interpreter in the medical field, and have always wanted to be some sort of interpreter. I have two dogs, one is a Shiba Inu named Gracie, and one is a mutt named Elvis. I currently live in Central PA, and would love to get to know some people in this community. I'm the youngest of three boys, and the only one who knows ASL in my family. Please feel free to text me!

    In-Dream Signing

    So I just finished my last semester at Suffolk University, where I took ASL I and II. I believe that me an ASL II. My signing is fairly limited and I have trouble understanding others who sign. However, a while back I had a dream in which someone used the sign for 'high school' ("H-S"). Even though my signing is still rudimentary, could this be an indication I'm starting to improve my ASL proficiency?

    ASL in Public Education

    Hey everyone, I am writing this for some research for a paper I'm writing and would appreciate if you guys would answer some questions. -What are your thoughts on implementing American Sign Language in public school? -Do you have any concerns? -What would be some benefits? -If this happens, should more middle and/or high schools offer more courses relating to American Sign Language and the Deaf culture? -What do you think would/could happen to schools for the deaf if this happens? Would they keep running or, after a while, would deaf students be spread out around hearing schools? **For Deaf and/or Hard-of-Hearing people** -Do you think it would help you now even though you have hearing aids? -How well do your hearing aids work? -Are/were there any obstacles you came across with your hearing aids? If there is anything else you think would help, please feel free to add that in your response.
