  2. i think its great you are designing this game but will there be a big enough market for it? thats something im not sure of. i personally think a really great idea. there are many deaf people who miss out on many things because it isnt designed for a deaf person in mind.
  3. Im learning asl because my wife and a few friends are deaf, (2) I am a firefighter and sign language is very handy in a noisy place. I watch closely when meeting some patients and sign to then when i speak to them. if they are deaf it makes it easier for me to pass on information when we are directing traffic at accident scenes. sometimes patients are deaf and i may not know it but it helps us to communicate accurately with other non signers. (3) we have had multiple requests to teach asl in our department so my wife and i are organizing as much information as we can.
  4. Hello out there Im a hearing husband of a deaf wife. Im a retired electrician and safety instructor. while i do know some sigh language this site will help me and some others in our fire department. there are not many deaf people in our community but i have a lot of deaf friends all over we have a heck of a lot of fun and they are quite patient with teaching this fumble fingered old fart that i am. so im very happy to be here!

  7. Hello my name is tye and i am hearing! I am 13 and almost in high school. I've always wanted to learn a language but i just didn't know which one to learn so i chose ASL. ASL has been part of my life for a few days now. I've improved A LOT during my study, and i have a book by Rochelle Barlow on ASL for beginners my mom bought me. I know how to do simple introductions and a few random words but i need help in grammar and where to place my signs. I also know the ASL alphabet pretty well and i can fingerspell really well. I would love to encounter a person who knows ASL so I could practice havin
  8. should sign language be taught in schools?
  9. i would do the sign with ''baby" and "tree" just because a baby tree is a sapling in proper definition, but there is no sign for that. so you would do both signs Example of baby tree:
  10. i would appreciate if somebody could practice with me!
  11. hi my name is tye and i'm 13. i am learning asl because i want to communicate with deaf/hoh people and the community. It's also fun to know a separate language that i can use when i want to say something in secret
  12. hi i am tye. i have been practicing asl for a little bit now. i am not fluent but would love to become VERY fluent! i am looking for someone to practice with
  13. Hi everyone, I'm a textbook editor and we are working on a nursery level series that teaches English and introduces some ASL signs. I want to include a sign that expresses the idea of "baby tree" (a small, young tree) for a song they learn, but I wonder if combining the signs for "baby" and "tree" would be correct or could generate a completely different meaning through a compound concept. Appreciate any help you can give us on that :)
  14. Hello - My name is Alan. I'm a retired counselor living in the Upper Left of the US (aka WA state). I was an interpreter at one time many years ago, left it to raise a family, work 2 jobs and drop off the "sign language" radar for a time. In the past 3 years I have discovered I have a hearing loss. I was diagnosed as hard of hearing and can notice when I wear my hearing aids and when I don't. I am getting back into signing more. My speed and ability to read sign have greatly diminished but I am here to regain that speed and accuracy. Am hoping to develop a greater vocabulary, too. Hope to meet
  15. The hydraulic hose is a flexible tube that is used to transfer hydraulic oil. Hose fittings are used to join hoses to valves, pumps, and other pieces of equipment, as well as for attaching hoses to the system. Hydraulic hose fittings are generally made of metal or plastic. Typically, steel fittings are cheaper than their plastic counterparts because they are less likely to be damaged during installation or use. The most common types of hydraulic hose fittings are threaded and non-threaded. Threaded fittings mate with threaded hoses, while non-threaded ones work with both threaded a
  16. Here's a first animation of our character Dr. Randy. Any feedback is much appreciated and helps our animator! She is signing: WOAH! Earthquake there excavate place do-do. Loud lightning! Why no-idea. You alright you (eyebrows up)? https://i.imgur.com/Pg3lBjc.mp4 dr.randydialogue1.gif
  17. Hello Everybody! I am glad I found this site. I have always been interested in Deaf Culture and Sign Language. In High School my best friend who dreamed of becoming an interpreter taught me some sign language so we could talk in class...lol. Ever since I have been trying to learn more. Only thing is that there are not many deaf people around me and she eventually moved away. The other day I saw a customer struggling to communicate because their phone wasn't charged and they couldn't text. I was able to help a little but I knew I could have been a better help if only I had practiced more.
  18. Okay so I have gotten A LOT more responses than I expected, which I very much appreciate. Now I don’t have a lot of free time, and I’ve found someone who I’ve been studying with on this site. I want to make sure that all the people who responded to my post can get a partner, but having such a big group would probably be complicated. So I’m hoping that maybe in this thread people will be able to find someone they would like to work with. I’m very thankful for all the offers, this is a wonderful community but I don’t believe that I can handle this big a group of people. If you can’t find anyone
  19. Hello, my name is Terri. I am learning ASL at my community College. In the middle of my first semester. I am enjoying it but need help keeping things fresh and reading fingerspell. It seems SO fast. Would love to set up a time/day to have a chat group.
  20. Helloo! My name is Aisha and I'm hearing. I've been practicing ASL for almost a year now. However, because I'm self-taught, I don't have much experience communicating with others through sign. I can sign my name at a decent speed, introduce myself, and know a few basics like the alphabet and greetings. If anyone is interested, we can set up a time to practice
  21. Helloo! I'm Aisha, and I'm new to ASL as well. Can we be study buddies??
