    Introduction!

    Hey all! I took ASL for four years in high school. I got to be good friends with my teacher, who is deaf, and that gave me lots more opportunity to use ASL. Since I've gone off to college a couple years ago, we chat less and less as we get busier and I feel some frustration at having lost/forgotten some signs. I want to keep up my skills. I started an ASL club at my college with a peer who has Usher's syndrome and is part of the Deaf/blind community, but as we are teaching beginners, I'm still looking for people to sign with. I would really love to video chat. I miss this language a ton. Nice to meet you all!

  7. Alisha Danforth Daniels

    My Introduction!

    Good evening my name is Alisha Daniels and live in the Spring Hill, Florida area. I’m a flight attendant and recently have been getting more and more hearing impaired passengers. The reason why I wanted to learn was because I felt it was so disrespectful to keep asking if they could read lips! I decided to start teaching myself then stumbled upon a class in my area. I can honestly say it’s one of the best decisions I had to get my feet wet and learn! I’m nowhere near perfect, but I can at least hold a conversation AND “sign” to passengers. Whether if it’s something to eat or drink, or “signing” the safety demonstration. I’m a firm believer of “if you don’t use it, you lose it” I’m hoping to find someone to practice with along this journey of mine!

    New here but not to ASL

    Hello, My name is Katie. I am 33 years old and missing ASL. I took 2 years in college and loved it. Have have been teaching elementary school for the last 10 years and need to use ASL when I lose my voice every few months however, my friend pool of using is none existent. I like cooking, camping, dogs and red wine. I live and grew up in Florida and like to travel to NC and NY when I can. I am looking for friend or more with someone who shares my ASL passion. I try and live a christian life and I would really like to learn religious signs. I am looking to video chat at least twice a week and get to know someone, build a friends and practice sign. Sincerely, KT

    My Introduction!

    Hi Everyone! Starting it off with: I just so happened to stumble across this website in search for an online practicing partner particularly in the sign language community. I love to learn and sign language is no exception to this. I love the way you use not only your personality with each sign, but the way each emotion is conveyed within that sign as well. I was actually quite intrigued with this way of communication/language since I was a little girl. I felt and still do feel as if sign language should be a requirement that everyone should know. In doing that, it will not only help the deaf community feel more included with our way of living, but vice versa. Im also in the medical field; in-turn finding this way of communication a lot better on the patients then forcing them to speak when they do not want to or can't.

    American Sign Language Videochat Business

    Hi, I hope you're doing well. I'm Celina Collot, Project Manager at Collot Baca Subtitling (www.collotbaca-subs.com). I'm contacting you because we have a project for translating several hours of interviews spoken in American Sign Language into English, and we would like to know if you'd be available and interested in taking it. There may also be some dialogue in spoken English, which we need transcribed as well. We need the dialogues to be timecoded and the speakers to be identified. This will be done in our own software, which is specialized for creating scripts. We will provide proper training for this, of course. The available rate is $5 USD per minute of video content. The subject of the interviews is deaf people talking about their lives. At the moment we have 3 videos, each one about 14 minutes in duration, and need them all by next Friday November 1st, 18:00 CEST. These three videos in particular consist on young people chatting in a bar. Should you be interested in taking one or more of the videos, please feel free to send us your CV at [email protected] I look forward to your reply. Regards, Celina Collot

    Practice Partners needed

    I'm an American living in Krakow, Poland, who just started learning ASL. So. it's a six to nine-hour difference from the U.S. (not counting Hawaii, of course).
  16. So, greetings to the community here. I posted once awhile ago about the Alcatraz tour in ASL. I have since definitely figured out why some people want the ASL tour and others just want the printed tour. But I have a new one for you guys, and this is potentially controversial. OK so I have a co-worker who is on the Autism spectrum. He received a large group of Deaf visitors. My co-worker enjoys asking people where they are from etc, I imagine he enthusiastically engaged with the visitors. Now here is the interesting part, the Deaf visitors did a O.? a "uh-huh knowing-eye-look" hard to explain, and then they did a beard-stroking movement accompanied with the eyebrow-raised thing. What were they saying? What was this beard stroking thing, they were definitely commenting on my co-workers autism. PS: Feel free to PM me if you want, I don't think this is too controversial but yeah.
