    Lex from Korea

    Hey, My name is Lex. I am American but settling down in Korea. For the tourism industry, I want to be able to provide ASl as well. Most HOH/Def students in Korea study ASL well so this would be the most universal sign language that I could learn. I am a complete beginner. So looking to take tips from anyone. Thank you.

  5. Hi everyone, my name is Lindsay, I'm 28 years old, and have CP (cerebral palsy). ASL has become the most useful tool in my life, to help me communicate with others around me, and in my community. I would like to learn more sign language to help me communicate with others in my life, to make new friends, and meet new people. I know the basic signs, and a little more.. I'm not able to verbally communicate due to my CP, so being able to learn more singing would be wonderful!!
  6. This is the perfect place to post this! In my experience, the ILY handshape version is more friendly and succinct, good for goodbyes to friends or lovers(works for groups too). The I, Love, You version is more emotive, and can be used more emphatically. I would use it for emphasis or if you're trying to make a stronger point(body movement and facial expression are vital). Hope this helps!

    Looking for Friends

    I’m hearing, but looking to make some new D/ HH friends I know a decent amount of sign, but I’m definitely rusty, would love any help getting back into it!
  9. Sorry if the title was confusing, I'm taking an ASL 1 class at my high school and we have learned how to sign "I Love You" using the signs "I" + "Love" + "You" and the abbreviated version using "I" "L" and "Y" on one hand. I was wondering whether or not there was a difference in the significance between the two and when to use either one. Sorry if this was the wrong place to post this! I'm very new to the forum.

    A little about me

    Well, when i was younger I found out that I am hard of hearing In my left ear since my brother decided to jam my ear with a quetip. And I started watching this amazing new show called switched at birth. And I have always wanted to learn sign language, since I'm hard of hearing as is, I use alot of body language already. So my daughter and I have actually started picking up on it very well and I'm def interested in learning more.

    New to the Group

    Hello Everyone. My name is Beto and I'm currently learning ASL; going into my third semester beginning tomorrow, and am excited classes are starting again. My mom passed away about a little over a year ago from Alzheimer's and while taking care of her I was doing research on ways to potentially prevent and/or slow down the potential advent of Alzheimer's, and came across some amazing research. I wanted to know because all of my mom's siblings also died from this disease and so it runs in the family. I found studies that indicated that by actually 'rewiring the brain' one can significantly increase the chances of not developing illnesses like Alzheimer's later on in life. The studies listed two major ways to rewire the brain; learn a new language or an instrument. I've always been drawn to ASL and so made the decision to begin seriously learning the language and the culture. I'm looking forward to developing friendships and helping each other learn. I'm seriously considering working as an interpreter and/or in some way use ASL to help others.

    Hi ASL learners!

    HI! My name is Kayla and I'm relatively new at ASL. I think one day I saw some people signing to each other and thought it was awesome and amazing and it was something I really wanted to try to do. I'm a student and there isn't much awareness about Sign Language or even deaf people at my school so I started an ASL club. I'm not entirely fluent but I have taken some classes, read tons of books, and watched a bunch of youtube videos, so I really want to learn so I can teach! I know you can't learn a new language just by reading books so I hope I can practice signing with people who know how!

    Marcus ASL 3

    Hello everyone, I am hearing and I am learning ASL in college as a foreign language. I am Digital Storytelling Major with minors in IT and Art. I'm very interested in developing technology to improve the deaf culture but have found a lot of resistance from the deaf community because I'm hearing. I am learning to navigate the world of deaf culture while using my talents in digital media to create content that could engage them. I am taking the final ASL 3 class in college and graduate in May. I work full time and love gaming. I'm 28 and work as a supervisor at a company that sells local internet. Looking forward to getting to know new people and practice my signing more!

    Hello! I'm Joyce

    Hey, I'm not fluent in ASL but I'm here for practice if you'd like
  21. Not sure if this is dirty or even sign, but I have seen a group of people extending their arms straight up and clapping their hands while their palms are connected. If there is no sign like that, is there a sign for just connecting your palms together without separating and clapping while in a V shape? Thanks,

    Just saw this and I'm glad. I will try to be on to meet people and practice ASL!
  23. I have been speaking asl for the past 3 years, and I’m unsure as to a few sign name rules. I’ve been hard of hearing my whole life, and so has my father. I’m not deaf, but I’m also not hearing. So can I give sign names to my hearing friends? I respect lots of them and how they’ve learned asl to help me, but I don’t want to disrespect deaf culture at all. Please help, thank you!

    Hello! I'm Joyce

    I was online looking to see if there are any websites that can help me practice ASL. I learned ASL about 12 years ago with a group of deaf/hoh. I was immersed in it for around 3 years. Now I want to practice ASL and the local group doesn't meet often and I feel a bit intimidated to go chat with them without brushing up on ASL. I am looking to do live chats with people to practice. I don't feel looking at vocabularies all day will help me. Hopefully this is the right place for me. Thank you!
