  3. This is excellent news. i'm on pacific time because I'm on the west coast. I'd be willing to get together sometime between morning and noon here. I'll check this site in the morning. I hope you are actively checking this site.
  4. Hey all, I would be down to be a practice partner. Id say im an advanced beginner willing to sign with anyone.
  5. Good afternoon. As many of us, I'm snooping around for online practice groups. Unfortunately zoom / online works ideally for many of us, but as Covid wanes and groups are ending in favor of in-person, we are eager to hear about new groups (beyond those currently offered on Meetup.com (most of us belong to the main groups on there already)). Sometimes opportunities are shared in smaller communities, so worth asking as our regular ones sadly decline. It can be tricky with time zone differences, but it can't hurt to ask! Looking for conversation / discussion (vs. games or classes), primarily intermediate and above (all levels are okay as well, as I'm happy to spread the word for anyone in the same boat). Thank you for any ideas, links, direction etc!
  6. Hello. I've been a member to this site for a few years now. I frequently get on here and try to practice signing with people who are interested. If signing practice is what you're looking for, I'll be in the chatrooms on this site for the next hour or so.
  7. Hi Jax, I'm Aislyn I saw your posts on helpful ways to immerse yourself in ASL culture. I love the idea of video diaries! I am hearing and have been studying ASL on and off since I watched Switched at Birth in like 2014, I recently picked it back up and am looking for a conversation partner. I have not had any formal training but I love watching Lifeprint videos by Dr. Bill Vickers. Not sure if you'll see this, but would you want to practice together? I have all the same video tools but flipgrid
  8. Hello, My name is Alexian, and I am looking to improve my ASL. I was wondering if there are others that would like to practice signing with me, so I can improve? I am new to this platform, so please let me know what I can do to help me achieve my goal. Thanks so much!
  9. Cool nice to meet you. I am non-binary goth deaf.
  10. 🦇Hi, nice to meet you 🦇😀
  11. 9 handshape wiggling could mean "fruit" 9 handshape tapping the chin then side cheek could mean "indian"
  12. 1st Sign: "Experience" 2nd Sign: "Touch" translation: "been to" (in ASL when you want to say you've been somewhere you sign "I've touched" the location.)(Often the sign is in conjunction with the sign "finish", as in "i've touch-finished that place")
  13. Hi cos, the practice part is easy when you find the right ASL youtube videos, this one has a few ASL master-lists of signs that's good for quick refresh~ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCM6yFmQWbC-hkdd7NaZvpKA
  14. Here's another youtube channel with a lot of content, that I can't currently comprehend easily but it looks to be very helpful in learning ASL. https://www.youtube.com/c/ASLInteractive/featured
  15. Hi everyone who's here looking to improve their ASL with some practice. I'm gonna be in the video chat rooms on this site for the next hour or so. Just pop in if you'd like to practice a bit.
  16. I literally just joined but im also lgbtq and into alternative stuff I'm trying to re-learn a lot that I've forgotten, so I can't really hold conversations quite yet but I hope I can soon !! ^^
  17. hello !! i'm cos. I learned sign in high school, but it's been years since then.. I'm neurodivergent and a lot of times I wish I could use sign instead of talking for when I'm mute. ASL is also just so fun and feels so natural to me. There's been someone that comes in where I work who uses sign, and it made me really realize how much I've forgotten ..., so I'm hoping to use the calendar events to keep me motivated in re-learning ! nice to meet you ^^

    Hi All

    Best of luck, I'm sure you will do fine!
  19. Oh okay, I'm joining the second class of two, but I prolly still know most of the material, which works out well as I need to focus on learning fluency. Hopefully it's going to be taught entirely in ASL.

    Hi All

    Wish I had some great advice to give you, but I really don't. I didn't know what to expect at my first class, but it was a beginner class and I found that I knew more than I realized. The next class was advanced and it was pretty easy as well. My schedule prevents me now from enrolling again. Maybe when the "Covid" thing calms down I can resume attending class.
  21. Welcome, your work lobby sounds like the perfect place to practice ASL, would it help to have a button, hat, scarf, or an apron with something related to ASL on it that people can see, and think of using ASL while they are there? Is there an interpreter there, and would they find themselves in the lobby if they knew someone there was learning to become fluent? I've been learning ASL for nearly six months and just signed up for a class that starts in a week and a half. Would you have any advice to brace me for the experience? The accompanying book, I already know most of the words in it, so I'll mostly be concentrating on receptiveness and confidence in doing so. Clips from ASL scenes in TV shows are also good for becoming familiar with signing reception, as it's usually kept short and often uses fluent inflections. I'll also have to focus on one of those ancient PBS ASL videos, number two was about commissioning a newspaper article, but it was quite long. I've made a cursory pass through them all, and it very clearly details life in the 70's, and most of the signs used were recognizeable from Vicar's set. I think they used an older sign for the word "everything", but seeing the differences helped me understand the sign better.
  22. Just joined the site. i have been using this site for a while to improve my receptive skills. I am hard of hearing and wear hearing aids. Because of this it has made me aware of how helpful it would be to know ASL. I work at the information desk at a hospital and have had a couple of occasions to use ASL although I struggle with it. I have been following Bill Vicars for a couple of years and have attended a couple of in person ASL classses.
  23. Thanks Amber for the YouTube link. It would be great if someone would create a new version of this, however I did watch the first video and found it to be very helpful. I have followed Bill Vicars YouTube videos and have taken a couple of in person sign language classes. I still struggle with receptive finger spelling and signing in conversation. I pick up a sign or two in conversation, but the trick is putting it all together. Thanks again. Fred
  24. 🦇 Please can you join me or new friends? I am goth non-binary. I don't see anyone video deaf goth or deaf goth LGBTQ+ on youtube, news, and online etc. I saw many deaf people on youtube, news, and online etc but where deaf goth??? I am strong goth while i was kid. I can teach you about goth culture because some people think goth people is bad. No! I am good goth. I can't alone deaf goth for set up online or youtube. If you are goth deaf or goth deaf LGBTQ? I happy see you soon! Please message to me Thanks.🦇
