    I'm ready to practice.

    Hi Rose, This is what I TRIED to sign. I’d like to practice ASL with you. What is your best time to practice? Morning? Night? Which? I work nights until Friday I can also see I need to adjust my camera. Hopefully after I get a chance to sign with someone a little more often, I will become a little more fluent. Thanx! Angelo

    Role Shifting and Storytelling In ASL.

    Here's one of my favorite stories to tell. Notice the role shifts and how aware I keep things at. Very important! Story: "I'm going to tell you a story. So a wood cutter goes to the forest looking for wood, well, trees to cut wood for winter. So he/she goes walking, stops, and sees a nice tree. So he/she gets the ax and starts swinging, hitting it, and says 'TIMBERRR' the tree falls. He/she watches/examines it and says 'nice', and he/she goes on and continues walking, and stops and sees a big tree! He needs this tree So he gets his ax and starts cutting away. He/she says 'TIMBERRR' but nothing, the tree still stood. 'Hmm weird' thought the wood cutter. Again, 'TIMBERRR'. The tree wouldn't budge, nothing. So he/she searches online locates a tree expert and gives the expert a call. The tree expert answers 'Hi, need help?' Wood cutter replies 'Yes, I have a problem. There's this tree that wont fall.' Expert then says 'Oh really? Well that's weird. Let me go take a look.' 'Okay, see you later". Here comes the tree expert. He comes and sees the tree. 'Hmm, yes I see. I know. That tree is deaf", the wood cutter confused 'What??? The tree is deaf?' 'Yes, you need to finger-spell' 'Oh, okay..." so the wood cutter starts to sign at the tree 'T-I-M-B-E-R' and it falls!!! Finished (The end)".

    Listing in ASL. Try and translate!

    I will give it a try. "Hi, I have three dogs and two cats. My three dogs names are. the first one is Edi, second one is Molly and the third one is Osita. My cats are. The first one is Mittens and the second one is Shredder."

    Hi Angelo, I am looking for people to practice with as well.I'd be happy to chat any time.

    "Recently, I saw the movie 'Ant-Man and the Wasp'. I liked it. I think you should go watch it." You were close! I hope you learned some new signs from this.

    Try and translate!

    so looks like I got the end part wrong? What did you actually say?

    Here's what it'd look like if I had said that @Rose McCormick

    Try and translate!

    Thanks for the challenge! I think I got the concept...not sure if this is exact: "I saw the movie Ant-Man and the Wasp. I liked it. I wonder if you have gone to see it". Is this correct?

    THANK YOU Rolando. That was VERY helpful. I had looked online but everything I found was 'to-view' something...movie etc...nothing that discussed a 'beautiful view'. Thank you again. I appreciate your help.

    "Hi Rose, good question. I'm going to show you the difference. First, I'd sign "look/see view" again, "look/see view" (look at the view). Next, "me look/see movie". Or (second way) "watch movie".

    My song project for ASL 2

    I'd fingerspell "band" before signing "America". So in ASL: "Me love band 'America'"

    My song project for ASL 2

    one question before I go to bed. I used the sign for "America" to refer to the musical group named "America" Is this proper in ASL?

    Hey all, I'd really appreciate your help with this. Is there a different sign that would mean THE view vs TO view? What I mean is, are there different ways to say 'LOOK-AT THE VIEW" vs "WE'RE GOING TO VIEW A MOVIE" Thoughts? Thanks in advance.

      Hi Shawn.  

      I'm not much on FB.  Is there an advantage of FB over using the chat room in this website?  I am working 12 hour nights until Thursday morning, so I'll be much more available then.

      Thx

      Angelo🙂

    Hello Ronald, This is a beginners attempt to say: I''m learning ASL because my daughter is learning ASL and will be teaching my grand daughter ASL in 2 months. I'm excited.
  26. Rolando Lucero Villalobos

    Does this make sense?

    Sorry! I messed up. Okay, let me try again. I'm still learning. Okay so... I would sign "Me look-up you [Why?] become better actor. Not only because you deaf, but because you not scared to be (same as 'become') yourself." Okay, good. That was good. Sorry!
  27. Rolando Lucero Villalobos

    Does this make sense?

    Hi Matthew, that was good, but too much English (being used). I would sign, "Me look-up you become better actor. Not only because you deaf, but because you not scared to be (same as 'become') yourself." I hope this helps.
