  2. Hi hello! I'm new to the forum. I was born hard of hearing, but only recently learned about the Deaf/HoH community and American Sign Language. I attend two schools and take ASL classes at my local community college. I love signing because it makes communication easier/enjoyable/understandable for me and I regularly attend Deaf socials/events because I enjoy making new friends. This summer, I took an amazing opportunity to study abroad for six months, but am now worried about not having the opportunity to retain everything I've learned thus far and feeling isolated again. Hence, I joined this forum. I'm looking forward to getting to know you all better! Thanks!~

    ASL PRACTICE

    Hey Grace! I've probably known some ASL since around age 11. A lady in the church I went to at the time taught me the signs for a particular song, and I believe ever since then, I have been fascinated and mesmerized by ASL and the deaf community in general. Honestly, I often wish I was or could be deaf, so I could connect with the deaf community on a deeper level. And I also feel like I'm going crazy sometimes with how loud and noisy everyday life and people can become.
  12. I'm hoping someone on this site could translate what the man in this video is saying. At first, he seems to say "Sorry" and "Thank you". He then proceeds to spell a word out. His last sign seems to mean "intelligent". Can someone tell me what word he was spelling, or possibly the entire phrase/sentence he is trying to get across? Here is the link:

    Teaching ASL

    Hi everyone! I am in ASL level 3, and recently finished teaching a series of ten ASL classes at my local library. I did this in order to make the resources to learn available to my community, since there are so few actual classes that exist. I taught a variety of different signs, from emergency signs, to verbs, to food signs. It was a very rewarding experience, and I highly recommend anyone who is considering entering a career in ASL to try it out. Even just teaching the alphabet and basic conversation signs could make a huge difference. I am posting my powerpoints, and packets (which include pictures of all of the signs, crossword puzzles, and sentence practice for participants to take home) here, in the hopes that someone can use them to continue teaching themselves, or to teach their community some ASL. Enjoy!

    Signing Stewardess

    A lovely suprise for this couple when they realized that the stewardess on their Philippine Airlines flight could sign! Wouldn't it be wonderful to see more of this kind of inclusion everywhere. Great customer service.

    Hello from Boston ma.

    Hello my name is Biscelia I am learning sign and would love to meet new friends to practice with. I am not deaf but I love the deaf community and I have a deaf sister but she lives in Georgia. I have taken a asl class here and plan on going back in july. 😊

    Hello it's nice to meet you!

    Great practice. We can all help. First little bit of advice. The sign for MAKE in ASL does not work the way it does in English. MAKE in ASL is literally to create something. So for making friends you would want to sign something like FRIENDS ME WANT NEW. You can use MEET, FIND, ACQUIRE. Just not MAKE. Make is an English word that has about 10 different uses in English. In sign, the sign for make is literally to create something.

    Does this make sense?

    Dear Gadget Jim, I said, to the word "you inspire me to become a better actor. not only because you dea but because you not afraid to be yourself"
  21. GadgetJim57

    Does this make sense?

    I just started learning ASL. I cannot figure out what you are signing. If you post exactly what you signed, that would be helpful.

    Does this make sense?

    I am meeting a big inspiration of mine soon who is deaf, does this make sense?
  23. One of my favorite songs …. These guys did a great job signing this song !!! >>>
  24. I only recently began learning ASL, since April, 2018. I have found the lessons with Meredith very helpful. She also gives a side view, which helps to see the signs from a different angle. >>> https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsuBAbMlPGJ95w3mwhz-30g
