  2. Hey everyone

    Hi everyone. My name is Valerie. I am 37 years old and I have been doing sign language for 27 years now. I am hearing but I have a few friends that are deaf.
  3. Last week
  4. Introduction: Hello everyone :)

    Hello to everyone!, I am Robert Buenning from Arkansas. Here learning ASL due to the fact of having Meniere's Syndrome. I can still hear, but I felt the need to start learning ASL just in case My hearing goes bad. So I am here to make friends, learn, and laugh with each of you. I am a beginner, but I am looking forward to getting better. I ask you to bare with my awkward signing as I improve, and make new friends.
  5. I am learning ASL because...

    I'm learning ASL because I feel that the language is so underrated. I like being able to communicate in a different way without using the voice but the art of sign. I am only a beginner and hope to one day increase my skills in time. Nice to meet you all

  9. New to the site and to ASL

    Hello, my name is Becki. A little over a year ago i enrolled in my local community college's ASL Interpreter degree program. I was beyond excited and extremely looking forward to immersing myself into a beautiful language and culture. Upon meeting my instructor about a month before classes were set to start, she very rudely informed me that i wouldn't be able to take her classes due to the fact that i am heavily tattooed, that i would never gain employment as an interpreter, and that i should consider a different educational path. I literally walked away from that meeting in tears as i had worked so hard to get enrolled, get finacial aid set and plan my schedule around my busy career and home life managing my family. My current employer was actually good friends with the president of the college and without my knowledge contacted him about my negative experience with the instructor. I was quickly contacted by the college and told in no way, shape, or form would my tattoos prevent me from seeking an ASL degree with them and was begged to continue with my enrollment..... but by that point i already had such a poor taste in my mouth for the instructor so i decided to withdraw my enrollment and continued to pursue my self study of the language. I still plan on enrolling in a college level ASL course and/or degree program in the future but until then i would love to meet some new friends here to practice and communicate with!

  13. Introduction

    Hey Katy! My name is Skylar, I have been signing for about three years self taught and now in college taking classes to be an interpreter. Just like you I fell in love with signing when I first started. I find the language beautiful and love being immersed in it. I have met a lot of deaf people from going to events and interact with deaf people regularly so I do have my sign name. My plan is to transfer to a school where they have a strong interpreter community as well as Deaf community. I would love to get to know you and sign with you. My email is [email protected] Feel free to email me anytime.
  14. Looking for ASL friends who would love practice

  15. Hey guys, I am a newbie to ASL and I would love to sign with you guys and get some practice
  16. Introduction

    Hello, all. My name is KatyLou_371, and I’ve been teaching myself ASL for about 5 years. It was love at first sign. I have wanted to be an interpreter since I started learning the language. My plan is to go back to school and become certified. I don’t have much experience with Deaf Culture, but I know a good bit of textbook information about it. I have had several interactions with Deaf people, including customers, who I have interpreted for, to take and order. Since I don’t have many interactions with the Deaf, I don’t have my Sign Name yet. I'm not sure exactly where I want to interpret, or what kind of environment I want to work in; I just know in my heart it’s something I’m destined for. I can’t see myself happy in any other career field. I do have some questions for anyone who is advanced in ASL, and would greatly appreciate any answers.

  20. Introduction! New to ASL Old to SEE

    <<VIDEO>> My name is Stephanie, I live in Alaska now, and am in University there. I work in the summer in SE Alaska (Petersburg) as a biologist, but go to school up in Fairbanks during fall and spring for my graduate program in marine biology. Winter I make sure to spend my time traveling as much as I can. The world is such a beautiful and amazing place it seems a shame to not explore it. I grew up with a deaf best friend, but being a rural community with no access to ASL and growing up in a hearing family, he learned SEE (Signed Exact English). I picked it up fast, took a few classes when I was older, but now he is learning ASL so I figured I would too. My dad and younger brother are deaf due to a virus now and learning ASL. Being in rural Alaska the deaf community does not have many translator options so it is always good to have the skills to help out when you can. My signing ability is pretty mixed, PSE and SEE being advanced, but then being really slow at ASL. I'm not taking classes at this time, so really need people to be able to video chat and practice my ASL with. Hope I can find some people on the online community to sign with and expand my skillset and meet some cool people, of course! Let me know if you are out there! -Stephanie: [email protected]
