  2. Getting motivated is difficult but not impossible. To stay motivated is hard especially when a person is stressed out about one of the many things going on in his life. Below are few ways which talks about how to motivate yourself.

  6. That sounds great! I am taking ASL201 right now and I meet for class on Tuesdays and Thursdays, but am available the other nights of the week and weekends. Just doing a video chat and signing as we get to know each other is perfect. I too am striving for proficiency so the more we can practice the better. I have some time tomorrow (9-6) or Wednesday evening this coming week. Just let me know.
  7. Hello! Is someone available to practice. I am a beginner in Sign Language and I have a test next Tuesday.
  8. I am currently in ASL 4 and a tad behind the other students. Does anyone want to practice signing with me? I have Marco Polo and I'm in California (not that it matters where you live)
  9. Hello again, Teri!! So I’ve had a little time to learn about this site and I realize we can do a video chat right on here and that, perhaps, was your intention! I think it’s a GREAT idea! We can get to know each other, a little bit. I am busy in the morning and have a meeting around 4 p.m. I can sign with you in the afternoon or in the evening/night. Like you, I’m hoping to become proficient in ASL and I am SO EXCITED to get started practicing!! If you’re interested, let me know. I can open a room and call it “Mid Age Ladies” and set it for 2 people. How does that sound?
  10. Hi Teri! Wonderful!!! It would be great to practice signing with you! So, I’m not too computer savvy and am actually not too sure of how this site works. But, I’ve used zoom and FaceTime, so just need a little help getting started. How do you and I start communicating privately?
  11. I would be interested in signing with you. I am a middle aged woman learning ASL - I am taking a 201 class at this time. I would love all the practice I can get as I am on a trajectory to get a Proficiency Certification in ASL. Please let me know when you are available so we can start a Zoom practice chat!
  12. Hi everyone! My name is Wendy A. I am a middle aged woman learning ASL and am eager to meet some other middle aged women also interested in learning and/or practicing ASL…nothing against all you young-uns!! It’s just that it would be really fun to be able to laugh about some of the finer aspects of growing older as we practice signing together. So, please, ladies, let’s connect!!! There’s a great game called Marco Polo that makes it real easy to send and receive videos that you can watch at your own leisure.
  13. i can't tell who you are talking to but i can see your responses. i am looking for help to find a way to make a fingerspelling challenge. but i wish to use my own alpha numeric sign that will be like a deaf equal right bill as once you learn you will not be able to forget therefore anything learn later will be retained also. once started it can't be undone.

  17. Hello, my name is Kleen, I am 23. I have two semesters left of my community college to receive my French Associate of Arts undergraduate degree in 2022. I study many languages including French (obviously), ASL, Japanese, Korean and am starting Mandarin this coming fall 2021. Languages are something I enjoy, including their cultures and would like to incorporate them into my life by finding friendships and partnerships with people alike. I am, in a way, desperate for a person near my age or a group who are open to helping each other with improving our signing since I am unable to find loca
  18. Speech synthesis is the task of generating speech from some other modality like text, lip movements etc. The computer-generated simulation of human speech is known as speech synthesis. It's used to convert written data into audible data when it's more convenient, notably for mobile apps like voice-enabled e-mail and unified messaging. It's also used to help the vision-impaired, so that the contents of a display screen, for example, can be read aloud to a blind person. Speech synthesis is the counterpart of speech or voice recognition just like in popular solutions like text to speech in goog

    • Getting motivated is difficult but not impossible. To stay motivated is hard especially when a person is stressed out about one of the many things going on in his life. Below are few ways which talks about how to motivate yourself. Starting small if big leads to procrastinating: Breaking a big task into small parts and taking baby steps to achieve it avoid procrastination. Getting motivated from the people in your life: Spending more time with positive people than negative ones, so that their positive energy flow over to you. Playing music makes you energized: Listening to music can uplift mood and inspires a person in some way. Being optimistic: Pessimism can drain out both motivation and energy. The positive and constructive way of looking at things can energize and recharge your motivation. Creating a positive mindset: Positive thoughts helps a person to stay motivated and stay energized. Creating a feeling of gratitude: One of the easiest ways to feel good about yourself is to practice gratitude. You can practice gratitude by writing gratitude journal and making this a part of daily habits. Setting attainable goals that excites you: Letting go of big goals, instead choosing exciting goals that helps you stay motivated, but not so big that you makes you anxious when facing them. Eliminating distractions mercilessly: Distractions are the biggest enemy of focus. If you want to stay motivated, you have to eliminate distractions from life. Working on what you want in long term and thinking about positive things boosts motivation. Reminding yourself of why you are working toward this goal: The feeling of unmotivated and low energy leads to losing sight of your goals. So taking few minutes and writing down your top reasons for doing this work and putting that note where you can see it every day boosts motivation.

    • listen why don't one of you not just make a comment but give a name. if you understand the naming convention then make your own. tentatively you could want to be called something. then people may approve but communities using this type of reference need to use a point of entry and that would be tribalism as the easiest like gang naming and they could mean how you would belong in a group so find what you do best and you find what people call those and you will then get a variant of the word as a name. this could also generate a list of possible names and it could entail status so look up the value of the variants and use one for yourself, or make it so you earn it to them.
