    intro

    Hi all, I tried to learn a ASL years ago, but didn't get very far, as learning resources were harder to come by. I have always wanted to pursue it again. Recently, after seeing a few videos and movies that renewed my excitement, I enrolled in an online course. However, the most effective way to learn a language is to put it to use. So here I am. I hope to be able to practice with like-minded individuals.

    My Introduction

    Hello! My name is Heather and I am interested in ASl because of my Deaf/hard of hearing family. My husband and two of our four children are D/HH. My husband has a moderate to severe hearing loss, our oldest son, 24-years-old has a mild to moderate hearing loss and our youngest son, 9-years-old has a moderate to severe hearing loss and speech issues. Their hearing loss is a congenital progressive sensorineural hearing loss. My husband and oldest son have lost more of their residual hearing fairly slowly over time but our youngest has lost his at a faster rate and he relies on sign to communicate because of his hearing loss and speech. He has an educational interpreter in school who is amazing! He has picked up on sign quickly but we have struggled to learn. With our youngest identifying with the amazing Deaf community, the fact that he is losing his residual hearing quickly and his hearing aids are not effective, and the need to communicate with him in sign daily I feel anxious to learn and become fluent. I have loved the Deaf community members that we have met and really want to be able to communicate with others. I look forward to learning and communicating on here!

  9. Most of the people say human translation is better than machine translation. What is the difference between them?
  10. Hi! I'm Kayla and I signed up on this website a couple of years ago but the timing never worked out for me to get around to it. Now I'm jumping back onto the ASL train as I attempt my journey to understand ASL and Deaf Culture better!

    Introduction

    I'm because I need to learn ASL. As for I have two children that have hearing loss. They have been implanted with cochlear. But they use ASL as a means of communication with the little vocabulary they got.
  13. So, I was first introduced to ASL about 5 years ago by a friend of mine who is an interpreter. Since then I've studied ASL off and on (not as much as I should have😃) and have attended several classes on the subject. I really enjoyed it, especially when I was good enough to start conversing with the deaf customers at the place I worked. I've been to several deaf chats and have helped interpret Bible studies for a friend of mine who is deaf. I know I have a long way to go before I am fluent, so I hope by signing with other people who are passionate about ASL I can get the experience I'm lacking. I look forward to meeting new people here!

    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!

    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.

    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.
